Trump revels in debate drama with rival event


DES MOINES, Iowa: Donald Trump visibly reveled in the drama unleashed by his snub of Thursday’s Republican presidential debate — taunting his rivals and host channel Fox News from a fundraising event nearby designed to upstage them. The billionaire frontrunner boycotted the debate in Des Moines, Iowa as part of a simmering feud with the conservative news network and went on to schedule a rival event for military veterans, broadcast at the same time and in the same city. Fox News issued a statement saying its chief Roger Ailes had spoken to Trump and “acknowledged his concerns.” It added that Trump had offered to appear at the debate upon condition Fox News contribute $5 million to his charities, which it refused to do.
