Former President Donald Trump confirmed Sunday he will skip the 2024 GOP Presidential Primary debates.
“The public knows who I am & what a successful Presidency I had, with Energy Independence, Strong Borders & Military, Biggest EVER Tax & Regulation Cuts, No Inflation, Strongest Economy in History, & much more. I WILL THEREFORE NOT BE DOING THE DEBATES!” Trump announced on Truth Social.
The former president hinted previously that he might not join in on at least the first debate in Milwaukee. Trump told Fox News host Brett Baier in June that, though he likes to debate, he didn’t see the point given his polling. Speaking of his rival candidates who are currently polling well below him, Trump asked, “Why would I allow people at 1% and 2% and 0% to be hitting me with questions all night?”
