BREAKING: Democrats Refuse Primary Debates On Fox News. Trump Punches Back.
President Donald Trump responded to the Democratic Party's decision to not allow Fox News to host the Democrats' presidential primary debates on Wednesday, saying that if the Democrats do that then he will refuse to go on far-left networks during the general election debates.
DNC Chairman Tom Perez said in a statement on Wednesday that allegations of bias made in a New Yorker magazine article this week were the basis for the DNC's decision to not allow Fox News to host a primary debate.
"I believe that a key pathway to victory is to continue to expand our electorate and reach all voters," Perez said in a statement to The Washington Post. "That is why I have made it a priority to talk to a broad array of potential media partners, including Fox News."
Trump responded late on Wednesday with a tweet indicating that if Democrats were going to play games with the coverage of the primary debates then he would not appear in general election debates on far-left networks, presumably CNN and MSNBC.
"Democrats just blocked @FoxNews from holding a debate," Trump tweeted. "Good, then I think I’ll do the same thing with the Fake News Networks and the Radical Left Democrats in the General Election debates!"
