Why would I sign a pledge if there are people on there that I wouldn’t have? I wouldn’t have certain people as, you know, somebody that I endorse.”

He expressed concern about endorsing or supporting candidates he does not endorse personally. 

Trump particularly criticized the relatively low polling percentage and national support required for entry into the Republican debates. 

He questioned the fairness of allowing candidates with minimal polling support to ask him “nasty” questions during debates. 

Citing past Republican presidents Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon as examples, Trump questioned the rationale behind participating in primary debates when leading by a significant margin.
