When is the Next GOP Debate 2016? Here is an update on the date, TV Schedule and Republican presidential candidates that will possibly be in the debate. The live streaming schedule is also given here.
For those wishing to catch the GOP debate before the Iowa Caucuses on Feb. 1, they can do so via online. Fox News has generously confirmed in a statement that it will offer live streaming without authentication to all. As such, anyone with an Internet connection and no TV can watch online through Fox News' website.Other options include tuning in on the FOX News Radio (find your station), FOX News Mobile and the FOX News Go app. The main debate is going to broadcast live on Thursday, January 28 at 9 PM ET. It is going to be broadcasting from Iowa. The candidates that will be appearing in the debate is still not concluded.
The network already announced its criteria for candidates in both the main debate and the 7 PM also-ran debate before the main debate. The lineups will be based on this criteria and announced sometime today. Interestingly, certain YouTube celebrities were invited to submit questions, so fans should really tune in to be able to vote wisely in the upcoming elections, Observer reported. He may be the most colorful character in the GOP debate, but fans might fail to see him on the next one because Donald Trump announced that he is not going to participate. He has not yet changed his mind.
Those raring to watch Donald Trump in the debate will be disappointed, though. He already announced that he is dropping out of the debate.
Trump announced on January 26 that voters should expect him on the Fox News debate to be held on January 28. He said he has something to take care of in Iowa. Fox News debate is a critical one, considering it is the last before the Iowa caucuses on Feb. 1.
According to Trump's camp, the presidential candidate will be engaged in a worthy cause during the debate period. He will be hosting an event for veterans in Des Moines, Iowa. "He will...raise money for the Veterans and Wounded Warriors, who have been treated so horribly by our all talk, no action politicians," Trump's campaign team's statement released Tuesday night, ABC News reported.
According to his campaign manager spoke on "Good Morning America" on the issue and why Trump is choosing the fundraiser over his debate. When Donald Trump goes to Des Moines and we start raising money for veterans and wounded warriors and we have multiples of millions of dollars raised for these people and the American people tune in because they want to support that and Fox goes back and say they should have had 24 million watching their debate and instead they got 1 million, it's a disservice to the American people," Trump's campaign manager Corey Lewandowski explained. Lewandowski also appeared on MSNBC to say other presidential candidates may skip the debate too, not only Trump.
This is the campaign's statement, but people believe otherwise. It is not a secret that Trump has an ongoing dispute with the cable network hosting the debate. Trump has been insistent about the network removing Megyn Kelly as one of the moderators for the upcoming debate, the anchor he warred with publicly for months now. The two have been engaged in a feud ever since the first Republican debate in August where Trump described her later on as being biased. It started when Kelly asked him to defend his long list of disparaging remarks against women in the past.
Fox News, however, never budged from its position that Kelly is an excellent journalist and should not be removed. To do so would be akin to catering to politicians' "tantrums."
Fox News is replacing Trump's podium with Ted Cruz's if Trump refuses to change his mind. The two are neck to neck in the recent polls.
