Donald Trump skipping tomorrow’s Fox News debate has dominated the headlines. His feud with Megyn Kelly continues – and he also believes that networks have been taking advantage of his appeal and selling advertising at a premium.
Trump is instead hosting a separate event during the debate which will raise money for wounded veterans.
So what does this mean for Fox?
As the Gateway Pundit reported, when Greta Van Susteren held a poll on Fox, 83 percent said they would not watch the debate without Trump.
This isn’t the first time Trump threatened to boycott a debate. Back in November he threatened to boycott CNN unless they donated $5 million to Wounded Warriors. His argument was similar – that the network was drawing in an enormous amount of traffic attributable to his appearance.As for if he’ll actually skip – I’ll have to see it with my own two eyes before I believe it.
