It looks like Donald Trump isn’t going to be the first to skip out on a major debate. Check out who else did the same.

“I have no objection to Fox News,” Trump said. “I made a little bit of an announcement before, but it’s not that big of a deal. … After a year you’re going to say, ‘Wow. What a difference.’ You’re going to be so proud of your country again. And we’re going to make America great again.”

Trump isn’t the first top-tier presidential candidate to skip a debate. Ronald Reagan did not attend a Republican debate ahead of the 1980 Iowa caucuses, which he lost to George H.W. Bush. Reagan went on to the win the nomination and the presidency. (Bloomberg)
