Trump Issues Threat to FOX News; Will He Go Through with It?


Donald Trump does not like FOX News’ Megyn Kelly. He has made that abundantly clear. At the first GOP debate hosted by FOX News, Megyn Kelly served as moderator and Trump did not like her questions. He felt that they were antagonistic, not a display of fair journalism, and she has been on his target list for destruction ever since.

The network is set to host the final GOP debate before the Iowa caucus on Thursday, January 28. Kelly is again scheduled to be a moderator, but not if Trump has anything to do with it.

On Saturday while campaigning in Iowa, Trump tweeted that he did not believe Kelly should be allowed to moderate the debate.

Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, has moved Trump’s tweet into threat mode saying that Trump may refuse to participate in the debate and stage his own forum instead if Kelly is allowed to moderate. He would allow a FOX rival to air his forum, thereby taking away from their debate ratings.

Speaking with New York Magazine, Lewandowski said,  “Let’s see what happens. It’s fair to say Mr. Trump is a significant ratings driver for these debates. If we aren’t on stage for some reason, they wouldn’t have the record 24 million viewers and would be back with 1-2 million people.”

Will Trump’s ultimatum work? Tell us what you think in the comments section.
