Fox News Cancels Debate after Trump, Kasich Decline

Fox News Cancels Debate after Trump, Kasich Decline

Mediaite has reported that Fox News Channel has cancelled the next GOP debate after front runner businessman Donald Trump and Ohio Primary winner Governor John Kasich declined to participate. The GOP debate was to be held on Monday, March 21, 2016 in Salt Lake City. The debate moderators were to be Chris Wallace, Megyn Kelly and Brett Baier.

The Mediaite article features a statement released by Michael Clemente, Fox News Executive Vice President:

On Feb. 20, the Republican National Committee announced that a GOP presidential primary debate would be held on March 21 in Salt Lake City. They offered that debate to Fox News Channel to host, provided there were enough candidates actively campaigning. This morning, Donald Trump announced he would not be participating in the debate. Shortly afterward, John Kasich’s campaign announced that without Trump at the debate, Kasich would not participate. Ted Cruz has expressed a willingness to debate Trump or Kasich — or both. But obviously, there needs to be more than one participant. So the Salt Lake City debate is cancelled.

It’s no shock that front runner Donald Trump has declined to participate in the debate. He has run out of things to say. He has been repeating himself over and over. Perhaps, he fears that his zombie-like followers will wake up from their Trump-daze, if he seen repeating himself over and over in yet another debate.

That makes sense.
