“Do you anticipate at some point jumping into the debates?” Starnes asked the Republican presidential frontrunner.
“I might,” Trump responded. “I mean, you know, it’s possible.”
The former president recalled the 2016 debates where he won in a crowded GOP field and then beat former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
“I liked debating. I guess I won because of the debates,” Trump said. “You know, they’ve been very good to me, so I might, but at this moment, I’m leading by so much that it seems to be foolish to do it.”
Trump said his interview with former Fox host Tucker Carlson on X garnered “the biggest numbers in history,” hinting that he might do something similar again.
“I would say that would be a lot better than a debate, frankly,” Trump added.
“Todd Starnes Show” national correspondent Ben Deeter, who attended the Milwaukee debate, told Trump and Starnes he saw “rookies” on the debate stage.
“When you look at them, you need someone to assist President Trump’s America First agenda, which is what we all miss, and I didn’t see anyone up there viable,” Deeter said.
Trump said he didn’t want to insult any of his rivals, but noted “it was not a great debate.”
