Trump to attend next Fox News debate

Republican presidential front-runner Donald TrumpDonald TrumpMcConnell: Trump needs to 'catch up fast' on fundraising Rubio: I hope I can trust whoever wins with the nuclear codes O'Malley: Trump is a 'racist' and a 'bigot' MORE says he'll participate in the next Fox News debate to be hosted by Megyn Kelly.

Trump skipped the last debate on the network, just before the Iowa caucuses, after he accused Fox of treating him unfairly.

"I'll be there, I have no objection to being there," Trump said Friday on the "Steve Malzberg Show," when asked if he'd be at the March debate.

"And that had nothing to do with Megyn Kelly, the fact that I went out of the last one had to do with a memo that was sent out by Fox that was a little bit taunting and I said it was inappropriate," he continued.

"And what happened is because I didn't do it I raised $6 million for the vets. So I wouldn't have changed places, I mean I did the right thing."

Trump was angered by a statement from Fox that mocked him for hesitating to participate in the last debate because he believed Kelly would be unfair to him. 

"We learned from a secret back channel that the ayatollah and Putin both intend to treat Donald Trump unfairly when they meet with him if he becomes president," the statement read. "A nefarious source tells us that Trump has his own secret plan to replace the cabinet with his Twitter followers to see if he should even go to those meetings."

The real estate mogul later said he had resolved the matter with Fox News and that they had apologized for the statement.

Trump held an event to raise money for veterans during the last Fox debate.
