Billionaire Donald Trump, who was set to moderate a GOP presidential debate on Dec. 27, 2011, has canceled because only two of the candidates, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum, agreed to show up.
Trump made this video of himself explaining why he decided to ax the event, and released this statement: "It is very important to me that the right Republican candidate be chosen to defeat the failed and very destructive Obama Administration, but if that Republican, in my opinion, is not the right candidate, I am not willing to give up my right to run as an Independent candidate. Therefore, so that there is no conflict of interest within the Republican Party, I have decided not to be the moderator of the Newsmax debate."
GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich met with Republican pundit Donald Trump Monday in NYC in hopes of receiving Trump's endorsement.
Trump said he would endorse a candidate for president sometime after he moderates the December 27 debate, hosted by Newsmax. When asked about a Trump endorsement, Gingrich replied to reporters, "Of course I want his endorsement."
Trump said he would not run for president unless "the wrong person gets in," but Trump didn't believe a wrong person will be chosen. Trump criticized candidate Ron Paul for not participating in his debate. Candidate Jon Huntsman also turned down the invitation. "With all due respect, this is from me, not him," Trump said, gesturing toward Gingrich. "Ron Paul has zero chance of getting the nomination," Trump said.
