Donald Trump may have declared debate season to be over, but he has agreed to another town hall, this one hosted by Chris Matthews on MSNBC at 8 PM Wednesday, March 30. Matthews will put questions to the GOP front-runner, as will voters in Green Bay, WI, where the town hall will be set.
MSNBC has hosted 10 previous town halls with Republican and Democratic presidential candidates this campaign season including Trump, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, John Kasich, Marco Rubio, Chris Christie and Martin O’Malley.
Trump declared he was “done” with debates after the RNC had tried to schedule another one for this past Monday on Fox News Channel. FNC had to cancel after Kasich said he too would decline if Trump was a no-show.
“I think we’ve had enough debates,” Trump said at a news conference about a week before that debate was scheduled. “I mean, how many times do you have to give the same answer to the same question?” Trump said at that news conference, announcing he’d snagged Ben Carson’s endorsement. Trump’s chief rival, Ted Cruz has suggested Trump’s afraid to debate him again and challenged Fox News Channel’s Bill O’Reilly to convince his pal Trump to another debate, which O’Reilly would moderate.
