Here Is Why Monday’s Republican Debate Got Canceled

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

The Fox News GOP presidential debate (scheduled for Monday) is canceled. Why?

Two of the three remaining candidates announced they would be skipping the debate.

According to TheBlaze News

Trump announced on Fox News’ “Fox and Friends” Wednesday morning that he would not be attending the debate, citing a pre-scheduled “major speech” to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.

“I thought the last debate on CNN was the last debate, that was going to be it. Nobody told me there were going to be more debates” the billionaire said. “I think we’ve had enough debates.”

Just an hour later, a spokesman for Kasich announced via Twitter that if Trump was skipping the debate, then the Ohio governor would as well — leaving Texas Sen. Ted Cruz on the debate stage alone.

[score]Ted Cruz[/score] is willing to debate either or both of the candidates, but it’s not looking likely at this point.

Now that the number of candidates on the GOP debate stage is finally dwindling down, it’s a shame that Trump won’t be participating. Less podiums on the stage means more time for candidates to really dig into the details of their policy proposals and to have more substantive debates with each other.

Now that the list of GOP hopefuls has narrowed down to 3, maybe Trump has decided it’s in his best political interest to avoid debating Kasich and Cruz head on. What do you think?
