What time is Republican debate tonight in Utah: Donald Trump vs Megyn Kelly leads cancellation of Fox debate
Republican debates have always been huge hit with Republican fans. Even many Independents and Democrats want to see the raging fire that seems to always emanate from GOP debates.
The accusations and counter accusations can be normal in any debate in any part of the world, but GOP debates are much more. The most used or rather abused word in the more than a dozen debates thus far has been â€˜liarâ€™.
Donald Trump used the word so much that many people started taking it lightly. Other presidential hopefuls too started using the same word and then Trump went up a level by introducing the â€˜biggest liarâ€™ in the debate themes.
Generally around 14 million people tune in to watch Republican debates. Compare it with Democratic debates that attract a â€˜paltryâ€™ 5-6 million people. These tend to be very polite debates without any fireworks that seem to be the hallmark of GOP debates.
In the meantime Fox News has cancelled the next Republican debate. The debate was scheduled for March 21 in Salt Lake City. However, with only one candidate willing to participate, Fox News was forced to cancel. Fox News, the network set to host the event, confirmed the news that had been reported by other news organizations earlier after it became apparent Texas Sen. Ted Cruz may be the sole candidate on stage.
The Fox News in a statement said, “Ted Cruz has expressed a willingness to debate Trump or Kasich â€” or bothâ€¦But obviously, there needs to be more than one participant. So the Salt Lake City debate is cancelled.”
Republican front runner Donald Trump said that he was not aware of the debate till now and only recently learned about the Monday Salt Lake City debate and already has a commitment that same night. The GOP front-runner is scheduled to address the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s annual conference that same day. So disappointment seems to be in store at the moment.
