President Donald Trump made the audacious choice to miss the first Republican presidential primary debate in favour of an interview with Tucker Carlson. And what do you know? It makes a great deal of sense! Trump is anything but a conventional candidate, so why should he adhere to a tried-and-true strategy?

When asked about Trump's intentions with Tucker Carlson, a campaign spokesperson responded, "We haven't confirmed anything on our end." The New York Times reports, however, that Trump intends to overshadow the Republican primary debate and make a major announcement.
Today is was announced that President Trump is skipping the first GOP Presidential debate on August 23 in Wisconsin that is hosted by Fox News. Instead, he will be doing a live interview online with @TuckerCarlson who was recently fired by Fox News😂.

As the main candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, Trump's absence from the debate is certain to harm media ratings. After all, who wouldn't want to observe him compete against his competitors? Trump, however, queries why he should participate in the debate if he is already so far ahead of his competition. Moreover, you make a valid point.
Trump wrote in a post on Truth Social, "Many people are inquiring whether or not I will participate in the DEBATES. ALL AMERICANS have been clamouring for an extremely intelligent President. Everyone is aware that my polling numbers dwarf those of a 'amazing' field of Republican candidates. In fact, I am currently more than 50 Points ahead of the runner-up, whoever that may be. Reagan and others did not commit the act. People are aware of my Record, which is one of the BEST EVER, so why would I argue? I am your guy. Restore America's greatness!"
Thus concludes the argument, people. Trump will forego the debate in order to conduct a "uncensored" interview with Tucker Carlson. Whether you like him or dislike him, you cannot deny his ability to stir things up. Keep your headwear on, America!
