Trump: Debates are a ‘waste of time’

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump is ready to be done with debates.
Trump on Friday night hinted he had thought about skipping another GOP debate, as he lamented the events as “a terrible waste of time.”
{mosads}“Aren’t these debates ridiculous, though?” Trump asked supporters at a rally in Oklahoma City, according to Business Insider.
“How about if I don’t do the next debate? Yes?” he added, before quickly deciding: “Ah, no, I’ll do it.”
The billionaire businessman said debates are repetitive and predictable.
“How many times can you say the same thing over and over? I can give you the answers of the governor, the two senators,” he said. “I can give you every single answer. I can also say Ben [Carson] will complain about not being asked a question. And he’s right! It’s not fair.”
Trump skipped a late January debate over an ongoing feud with Fox News, instead holding a rally that he said raised money for veterans groups.
Fox News is hosting next week’s GOP debate, and anchor Megyn Kelly — whom Trump has repeatedly criticized and clashed with — will be among the moderators.
