Fox: Trump Wanted $5M to Be in Debate


Fox News reports that Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump asked the TV network for $5 million in exchange for appearing in Thursday night’s debate.

Trump had ditched the GOP event in favor of his own “Special Event to Benefit Veterans Organizations”—which he claimed had raised $6 million for his foundation while overshadowing the debate in the process.

The network said in a statement, “Trump offered to appear at the debate upon the condition that Fox News contribute $5 million to his charities. We explained that was not possible and we could not engage in a quid pro quo, nor could any money change hands for any reason.” Read more at the Chicago Tribune.
