What time is the Republican debate tonight: GOP debate live blog, Donald Trump’s absence being felt

Why Donald Trump has decided not to take part in the Republican debate tonight? Fox News GOP debate will definitely feel less colorful due to his absence from the 7th Republican debate tonight.

While some people are of the view that this is a shrewd move on the part of the Republican frontrunner, there are others who believe the decision may backfire as other candidates take center stage and attract people’s attention.

Then there are others who believe that the last few debates hadn’t gone down well for him as he might have planned and so now he wants to go solo and stop participating in such debates that he seems to be losing one after the other.

A report while talking about Donald Trump’s decision to leave the debate says that it may help him bag the Republican nomination. “With just a few days until the Iowa caucus, the Republican candidates want to spend their time talking about themselves. They want to lay out their policies and plans, point out how they’ll be better than President Obama, and how they are the best candidate in the race…They don’t want to spend their time talking about someone else” says the report.donald-trump pic

In the meantime as expected Donald Trump has escalated a fight with Fox News calling its top anchor Megyn Kelly a “bimbo” in a derogatory tweet. Trump on Tuesday withdrew from the televised encounter, scheduled for tonight in Des Moines, Iowa, in irritation at host Fox News for allowing Kelly to moderate after her questioning angered him in a debate last year.

In a tweet the real estate czar said, “I refuse to call Megyn Kelly a bimbo, because that would not be politically correct…Instead I will only call her a lightweight reporter!” This is not the only tweet that he released after deciding to pull out of the debate.

Other Republican presidential hopefuls are attacking him for running away from the debate. His main challenger for the Republican nomination US Senator Ted Cruz attacked him accusing him of “trembling at being questioned by Kelly.”

Rand Paul was also unforgiving. While talking to Fox News he said, “we don’t have to put up with a lot of empty blather and boastfulness and calling people names.” Trump’s decision means the last televised debate before Monday’s Iowa caucuses — which kick off the state-by-state nominating race to choose candidates for the presidential election — will not feature the man who has dominated the Republican race for months and leads many opinion polls.

How to watch GOP Republican debate tonight: The debate will be hosted by Fox News. Anyone with an Internet connection will be able to watch online through Fox News’ website. You can also watch it on FOX News Radio, FOX News Mobile and the FOX News Go app. The main debate is going to broadcast live on Thursday, January 28 at 9 PM ET. It is going to be broadcast from Iowa.
