GOP front-runner Donald Trump surprised the folks over at Fox News this morning during a call-in interview where he informed the Fox & Friends hosts he will not be attending the upcoming Fox News Republican debate.
“Nobody told me about the debate,” said Trump during his phone interview, revealing that a longstanding commitment — a speech to what he estimates is “eight or nine thousand people” on the night of March 21 — is preventing him from attending.
The trio of Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt, and Brian Kilmeade tried to negotiate with the master negotiator a bit, with Earhardt offering, “The voters love them though!”
“No, you know who loves them? The networks,” clarified Trump. “Haven’t we had enough?” he asked at one point.
The debate, announced this past Monday, is set to take place in Salt Lake City on March 21st.
