Trump isn’t taking the bait…
During Wednesday night’s second GOP debate, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie called former President and 2024 GOP frontrunner “Donald Duck” for ducking the debates.
If Christie was hoping to get a rise out of Trump, it seems he has failed.
According to a report from The New York Post, Trump will skip the third GOP debate.
From The New York Post:
The decision comes after his rivals lambasted the 77-year-old at the second GOP debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif. Wednesday night, with former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie calling Trump “Donald Duck” and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis called him out for “missing in action.”
The former president opted not to attend the debate, and instead rallied in Michigan.
DeSantis later challenged Trump to a one-on-one debate.
“You know what, maybe we can say since the former president didn’t come here, maybe he’d be willing to do one with you and I,” DeSantis told Fox News’ Sean Hannity after the second GOP primary debateWednesday night.
But the former president has repeatedly said he will not appear at the debates, as he maintains a hefty lead over his rivals.
“These are folks that are nipping at the heels of the frontrunner, they’re nowhere close,” advisor Chris LaCivita said in an interview with CBS News following the debate Wednesday.
“As a matter of fact, if you took the combined polling weight of every single candidate on stage tonight and paired it up against Donald Trump, they’d be losing by 20 points,” he claimed.
