Trump And Carson May Boycott The Next Debate: Why?

Trump And Carson May Boycott The Next Debate: Why?

The leading 2016 GOP Presidential candidates Ben Carson and Donald Trump are threatening to boycott the next debate scheduled for October 28th on CNBC.

According to CNN:

Republican front-runners Donald Trump and Ben Carson are threatening to pull out of the next Republican primary debate if the hosts don’t agree to their demands.

In a letter to CNBC, which is hosting the next debate, the two candidates said they would not participate in the Oct. 28 debate “if it is longer than 120 minutes including commercials and does not include opening and closing statements.”

The article notes that the three hour CNN debate played a factor in the demands and CNBC is taking them into consideration.

“The demand for a two-hour debate comes in the wake of CNN’s decision to extend the previous GOP debate to three hours, leaving some of the candidates visibly exhausted.

One source who was on the call said it was clear from Lewandowski’s remarks that Trump had no interest in participating in the CNBC debate, which will be held in Boulder, Colorado.

In a statement, CNBC said, “Our goal is to host the most substantive debate possible. Our practice in the past has been to forego opening statements to allow more time to address the critical issues that matter most to the American people. We started a dialogue yesterday with all of the campaigns involved and we will certainly take the candidates’ views on the format into consideration as we finalize the debate structure.”

  1. I would LOVE to see both men , NOT show up for that Liberial Show….their doing so would ONLY increase their popularity….

    • Me to. Then maybe people would snap out of their trance. The Pied Piper (and the Puppet) leading rats to the sea, Just like marionettes they’ll swing to the symphony, OF DESTRUCTION. Ok, those aren’t the exact words,I paraphrased a bit to suit the situation but tis the truth nevertheless. No Trump won’t win. Even if he gets all the Republican vote. Here’s why. If he gets the nomination, only the same Republicans that have brought the Republican party to the place it is today, are going to vote for him. The principled TRUE conservatives, will vote Libertarian as the only Conservative option left, or perhaps write in Donald Duck or some such, in protest at the betrayal of their party. Without someone to garner the vote of EVERY registered (or not) Republican and the 10-20% in the middle that can go either way,Theirs only one candidate that is truly capable of that and the party as well as the media has conspired to marginalize the man at every turn. In short, Bernie Sanders aint entirely out of the realm of electable.Not likely but….hey I said the clown that’s in the White House now would never get elected. I would have bet my house he’d not make it a second time. Fortunately for me, everyone else thought the same and consequently had no takers of the bet. Whew, an education in the mass lunacy that is rampant in this country.Not its the other sides turn.

  3. I agree the popularity of them standing up to the alphabet networks, will send HOPE to all of us that are tired of hearing the same old stuff, repacked and colored in a different box. SHOW THE ALPHABET NETWORKS WHO IS BOSS!! IT IS THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!!!

  4. “Our goal is to host the most substantive debate possible. Our practice in the past has been to forego opening statements to allow more time to address the critical issues that matter most to the American people.”
    Pleeeeaaaase! What a bunch of BULL#_%*! They want to put the candidates against each other and push their own agenda!!! I hope they bail out and stand up to these stinking ” egomaniac journalists” If they do it Will only make them look stronger in my opinion!

  5. I like both Trump for his business skills, and Ben Carson for his honesty and integrity, and logic. I like them both, because they have the guts to stand up to malfunctioning media, and make a difference. I wish they could both be president, and also John McCain as Defense coordinator.
