Trump particularly took issue with the low entry bar for the Republican debate, which allows candidates with minimal polling percentage and national support to participate. He expressed concerns about providing a platform for unpopular candidates to voice negative opinions about him.

“Why would you do that when you’re leading by so much?” Trump asked, referring to past Republican Presidents Reagan and Nixon, who also chose to skip primary debates. He stated that many leaders, including Reagan and Nixon, did not participate in debates despite their significant leads.

Trump indicated that he is considering the matter seriously, acknowledging his strong debating skills, but also emphasizing the need to make informed and strategic decisions to portray himself as a smart and capable presidential candidate.

The interview leaves uncertainty about Trump’s potential participation in the upcoming primary debates.
