Report: Trump to Skip First Debate to Participate in Rival Event with Tucker Carlson

Former President Donald Trump has reportedly finalized his plans to skip the first Republican presidential debate and instead participate in an event with former Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

 The New York Times reported the news noting the former president has spent the last several days soliciting feedback from aides and allies on whether to participate in the debate.

When The Hill contacted for comment on the reported agreement between Trump and Carlson, an aide for the former president said his campaign “hadn’t confirmed anything on our end” and cautioned against “getting too far ahead” as it relates to the former president’s plans.

Trump, the front-runner for the GOP nomination, has for weeks signaled a hesitation to participate in the Aug. 23 debate, which is being hosted by the Republican National Committee and will be broadcast on Fox News.


  1. Every time the disgusting Democrats file a new charge against the Best President to serve in modern times, I write another check to that Best President — Donald Trump. I urge my friends to do the same. He is the ONLY candidate who after elected in a landslide in 2024 will have the unique ability to save our once great Nation. All Aboard the Trump Train ! Making America Great Once Again !

  2. Trump does not need to debate. They will only harass him & he has had enough of that crap!
    Trump has made it very clear as to where he stands on all the issues. He made the right decision by saying I don’t need to deal with your crap.

  3. It would be foolish to play “Pin the Tail…” when you’re the donkey! Sure, it would be a gang-up, a pile-on situation.
    Trump is right to refuse to be the TARGET for the “other guys.”
    I can’t wait for the Trump/Tucker discussion, which will suck all the air from the networks! This has never been done, and when wildly successful, it will BREAK television’s stranglehold over elections! TV Execs are going to freak! Leftists thinking they control the process are going to melt down!
    It will be glorious! Exactly the right move.
    Watch the fireworks, Patriots!
