Donald Trump says Fox Apologized to Him in Debate Feud
Donald Trump says Fox News Channel apologized in their feud leading up to Thursday’s presidential debate in Iowa, but he was still a no-show for the last scheduled forum before voters begin to make their voices heard.
Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes, in conversations with Trump, “acknowledged his concerns” about a statement the network had made in the days leading up to the debate, Fox said. But Fox said Trump had demanded a $5 million contribution to his charities in order to appear, which the network rejected.
The network and presidential contender had been feuding since Trump demanded Megyn Kelly be removed as a debate moderator.
Trump was holding a competing event in Iowa that Fox rivals CNN and MSNBC were broadcasting.
