One would think Donald Trump would have lots to tweet about tonight’s Democratic debate — and he probably does. Unfortunately, we will not be graced with his eloquent commentary. Trump sent out a tweet saying he would be absent from tonight’s debate festivities because he is off to Japan for the G20 Summit to “save the Free World!”
Instead, Trump directed his followers to the multiple accounts including his campaign manager, his Director of Communications Brad Parscale, Director of Strategic Communications Marc Lotter and National Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany.
“For tonight’s #DemDebate, be sure to follow @TeamTrump, @TrumpWarRoom, @Parscale, @KayleighMcEnany, @TimMurtaugh, and @Marc_Lotter for RAPID RESPONSE, FACT CHECKING, and the TRUTH! #MAGA #KAG Sorry, I’m on Air Force One, off to save the Free World!” he tweeted.

In an almost hour-long interview, with Fox Business’s Maria Bartiromo he said of the debates: “It just seems very boring, but I’m going to watch it because I have to. That’s part of my life. Do I want to watch it? Do I want to watch these people? It’s a very unexciting group of people.”
