The next Republican presidential debate is Thursday night, and Donald Trump is already crying foul.
Trump spoke on CNN's "Situation Room" on Monday where Wolf Blitzer asked him if he was certain he would participate in the Fox News debate. Trump said “I’m not 100 percent, I’ll see. If I think I’m going to be treated unfairly I’ll do something else. But I don’t think she can treat me fairly, actually. I think she’s very biased and I don’t think she can treat me fairly."
He went on to say “But that doesn’t mean I don’t do the debate. I like doing the debates. I’ve won every single debate according to every single poll … so I want to do the debates, they’re good for me. But I don’t think she can treat me fairly and I’m not a big fan of hers. Maybe I know too much about her.”
A Fox News official responded by saying “Sooner or later Donald Trump, even if he’s president, is going to have to learn that he doesn’t get to pick the journalists — we’re very surprised he’s willing to show that much fear about being questioned by Megyn Kelly."
Trump and Kelly have been at odds since the first Republican presidential debate in August of 2015. Trump said that Kelly was coming after him with “blood coming out her wherever.”
Trump said he doesn't like her and added “I might be the best thing to ever happen to her. Whoever had even heard of her before the last debate? But I thought she was very unfair in the last debate. A lot of people said I won the last debate, everyone said I won the last debate, but I’m not a fan of Megyn Kelly. I don’t like her and she probably doesn’t like me and that’s OK. But she better be fair.”
