Trump campaign says he will 'definitely not' participate in Fox News debate

Donald Trump will not attend the Fox News debate on Thursday, his campaign manager said Tuesday.

"He's definitely not participating in the Fox News debate," Corey Lewandowski told The Washington Post. He said that instead, Trump will host an event in Iowa to raise money for "wounded warriors." On Monday, the Republican frontrunner said he was contemplating not attending the debate because he felt Fox News anchor and moderator Megyn Kelly was "biased." In August, Trump clashed with Kelly during the first Fox News debate, when she asked him about disparaging comments he previously made about women.

Earlier Tuesday, Trump asked his Instagram and Twitter followers if he should participate in the debate.
