Oh this is getting good. Real good.

Trump is not going to the FoxNews debate !!!!

He has his reasons and Megan Kelley seems to be involved !!!!

Clever Campaign maneuver.

Trump FIRES FoxNews.

Fox commentators are awe-struck and rolling around the floor in fetal positions !!!!




Unlike the very stupid, highly incompetent people running our country into the ground, Mr. Trump knows when to walk away. Roger Ailes and FOX News think they can toy with him, but Mr. Trump doesn’t play games.

Trump Campaign Statement on FOX News Debate





Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump abruptly announced here Tuesday that he would not participate in Thursday’s scheduled debate, escalating his off-and-on feud with Fox News Channel and throwing the GOP campaign into turmoil.

Trump’s assertion, which his campaign manager insisted was irreversible, came less than one week before the kickoff Iowa caucuses. He once again defied the conventional rules of politics, and used his power and prominence to shape the campaign agenda and conversation.

So far, Trump’s untraditional moves have only expanded his support, but his threatened boycott leaves him open to criticism that for all his tough talk he is ducking face-to-face confrontations with his opponents and scrutiny from the Fox moderators.

I don't like the guy but I admire him for sticking to his principles and not letting anything sway him. I also like his spirit towards veterans, he might wrong on a lot of things but he's right in trying to help those who have served

Wow, something Trump does that I actually like! Is the world ending right now?

Good on him for sticking to his guns, no matter how much I still don't like him.

Honestly I like him because he has the calls to be real.

When's last time we got to vote for someone with a personality?

This is going to be brutal on the left.

Support a station they despise?

Or support a candidate they despise.

Or ignore both.

(I'd go with option 3, less stress and the "safe zones" will already be overcrowded)

hahahahahahaha

I wouldn't either, Fox uses him for ratings, they said he didn't have a chance this whole time until last week, what does he get from the deal ? negative articles about him from Fox days before the caucus. Just goes to show, either Trump gets something out of a deal or there is no deal. Fox has been all about some Bernie today for sure, Tomorrow he is on that penile vessel Oreillys show. Trumps party sounds way more fun plus its a fundraiser for the vets. Hopefully he will leave all of his recent endorsements at home.

This is what I love about Trump. He's not doing this to be vindictive or spiteful. He is simply right.

There have been six debates. There are better things to do now. He really is a big supporter of Wounded Warriors and our veterans. He's going to focus on that venue and Fox can have their debates with the rest of the candidates.

Simple. Why should he stand up there while Megyn Kelly gets HER revenge. Unproductive, imo, timewise and personally for Trump.

It's not like the public is going to miss out on hearing how he stands on things. We've already heard his stance on the issues and we already know Mr. Trump. Let the other candidates have some light shone on them.

I'll be honest, I am truly enjoying Trump. I'm by no means a supporter, don't misconstrue me (I'll still trying to figure out what Ameritude is and why little girls in bikinis need to sing it), but I'm enjoying the pure comedy coming out of all of this - the American political system is a joke, and now I'm not really laughing anymore.

Although not necessarily the same, so take this with some salt (I can admit I can be wrong) Rand Paul recently took quite a bit of heat for something along similar lines.

This is the man people think that America needs. I wouldn't say he understands, as I'm sure he is intelligent (he praises himself like Kanye does Kanye, there's a difference), but he simply doesn't care about learning to play with others and how to respect another's viewpoint.

"Take his jacket! It's -10* below out there!"

America shouldn't be viewed as a business - period. It's this nation that has developed corporations having "rights" and do I need mention legislation such as TPP and ALEC? It is not only "politicians," who have raped the American public for decades - it's much more insidious, and those who speak out take a limousine ride through Denver.

Whatever happened to ATS and the ever growing crowd of individuals who had seen past the partisan-politics, realizing exactly what it is - and the most magnificent tool of divide, yet exactly the same - the Republican/Democrat paradigm.

I have absolutely no faith that Donald Trump will accomplish ANYTHING that will benefit the average man and woman, or their future children and grandchildren. Perhaps I'm too pessimistic, I truly do envy some of your optimism in the hopes that "Trump is shaking things up!," but I have my doubts regarding Sanders and even Paul, albeit Rand Paul seems to be THE most level-headed, rational, calm, reserved, and realistic candidate across the boards. Trump does not seem to be the type of man as an FDR or J/RFK, he reaks of a megalomaniacal bully who has a superiority complex.

"Unconsciously or consciously, all of the women on the Apprenctine flirted with me. That was to be expected."

I still have a long life ahead of me, and living through (and being able to comprehend) the last three election cycles, it was beyond any doubt that we "Constituents," have absolutely no in governmental affairs. I'm from Illinois, and I've met Aaron Shock - grandiloquent little douche, he was an elitist who preached a word he himself never believed in. I feel as if Trump is absolutely no different, and is using the general distaste towards government in many Americans, as well as other current issues on Americans minds; terrorists, gun confiscation; in order to gather support, using the same retired and recycled rhetoric that has been used for decades as his main tool.

"Make America Great Again"

Again - perhaps I'm too pessimistic, and I doubt many will even bother reading my post. ATS used to frown upon partisan bickering, but now it is to be expected - and I myself have been guilty of it. Donald Trump and supporters, I have but one question to ask you:

You talk about "gun confiscation," especially in the form of a federal government takeover. Why would you then continue to vote in favor of a federal government?

As to Trump not partaking in the debate, I'll keep my answer nice and short. If he's elected into office, I hope he realizes it's not "my high or the highway." Government is much more complex than that, unfortunately. He sounds like a baby to me, but then again, I've always had this crazy opinion:

"Watching television or reading the Internet helps you understand politics as much as watching someone run ten miles helps you stay in shape."

I think this is a good example of the type of rational we can expect in the presidency and I like it.

He might actually get some respect from Russia.

I suspect, a strong feeling, he and his campaign manager got wind that he was going to be set-up in this debate.

Fox will be the only one hurting from this, if Trump isn't there, the debate ratings go way down, and likely his poll numbers do the exact opposite.

Ron Paul.
Gary Johnson.
Rand Paul.

I could name a few more, if you'd like. Dr. Ron Paul had personality, and he was essentially a dinosaur.

Please don't tell me that Donald Trump has a good personality, he himself probably doesn't even believe that line from his trophy wife. Nothing wrong with that, either. None of my business, just making a funny.

I've seen dogs with a deeper personality than Trump.

Both Trump and Bernie scare me, but they both say stuff that needs to be said and done.

So is he running a successful intelligence operations using connections he's already got in media?

Hey he knows how to run intelligence!

I like Megyn Kelly. She is a hot commodity for Fox right now.

Vanity Fair recently did a piece on her. www.vanityfair.com...

I have a feeling this 6th debate, however, is more about spotlighting Megyn than anything. Donald gets it! The man is brilliant, imo.

Do you know how Russians treat gay people?

People actually protested Putin by mailing him dildos... true story. Half of the GOP candidates support a no-fly zone in known Russian airspace and have stated on-air they would "shoot them down," clearly they have no idea what the ramifications of such an act would have.

Anyways, Donald Trump is not the first person in the world to talk about veterans, either. *cough* Dr. Ron Paul *cough*

I am a fan of all 3 of them. I also like some stuff Trump says. I also heard Trump saying stuff that I heard Ron Paul say. Yes Trumps personality is unfortunate I agree, probably agree with You on almost everything. Its a toss up for me between Trump and Berie if that who it is going to be, maybe Rand will shock everyone but we all saw what they did to his dad, that pissed me off so bad back in 2012, jeez those cheating manipulative media jerks. I do find Trump entertaining though, it was time for him to do something crazy, he is like on a schedule or something.

The more insane headlines, the more the brain gets conditioned. I'm starting to think that with all this airtime, Trump is the next president the establishment has selected in order to undo the current style of governing.
