Trump to participate in Fox News debate
MIAMI - Donald Trump and Fox News Channel are getting back together.
A spokeswoman for the Republican presidential front runner confirms that Trump will participate in Thursday's debate sponsored by the news channel, even though his sometime nemesis, Megyn Kelly, will be one of the moderators. Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks says the billionaire developer "looks forward to participating."
That's a departure from Trump's brawl with the network ahead of the Iowa caucuses in January when he demanded that Kelly be ousted from the lineup because she, he said, had been unfair to him.
Trump skipped the debate to hold his own event a few miles away.
Trump lost the leadoff Iowa caucuses to Ted Cruz and attributed it to "lies" told by the winner's supporters.
But Trump also suggested in Milford, N.H. that skipping that debate may have cost him votes.
