DES MOINES, Iowa (The Adobo Chronicles) – Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has confirmed that he will not be participating in Thursday’s FOX News GOP Debate in Iowa.
Trump’s campaign said that the billionaire real estate mogul is skipping the debate because of an ongoing rift with FOX News, particularly Megyn Kelly with whom he has had some feisty exchange in a previous FOX News debate. Trump believes that Kelly is biased against him.
But the center podium will not be vacant.
Trump announced today that former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin will stand in for him. Palin just days ago formally endorsed the GOP frontrunner.
“We needed to have someone who could come face to face with another woman debate moderator like Kelly so that the playing field would be more fair and square, the Trump campaign said, adding that ” in as far as policies and ideologies are concerned, the governor and Trump are on the same footing.”
