Trump: No Regrets About Snubbing Debate
Donald Trump has no regrets about missing Thursday’s GOP debate. He bragged about his veterans fundraiser being bigger and more fun.
“We gave a tremendous performance with lots of different people for the veterans,” Trump said in an interview with “Face the Nation” scheduled to air Sunday.
“And we raised … six million dollars. And we had less than a day to do it. … And on top of that, we got great coverage. Because the debate was not as exciting as what we did.”
The Hill reports:
Host John Dickerson asked Trump whether he went overboard in pulling out of the debate over a mocking press release by Fox News earlier this week.
“You were offended. … Aren’t you being a little too politically correct?” he asked.
“You know what I did? I went out, and I raised $6 million for vets,” Trump replied. “That’s more important, frankly, than doing a debate.”
