UPDATE: Trump announces that he will NOT be participating in the Fox News Republican debate.

MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa — Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump says he will not attend a debate scheduled for Thursday night in Des Moines, an unexpected twist just days before voters here launch the election process.

“I probably won’t be doing the debate. I’m going to have something else in Iowa,” he said during a press conference on Tuesday afternoon.

After the press conference, Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski confirmed to The Washington Post that Trump would “definitely not” participate in Thursday’s Fox News debate.

“He’s definitely not participating in the Fox News debate,” Lewandowski said. “His word is his bond.” (Washington Post)

Ted Cruz offered THIS huge challenge:

Donald Trump does NOT want anyone to play games with him. Do you think that Fox News’ ratings would plummet if he was to skip out on the GOP debate?

Here was the exchange:

Bret Baier: I’ll see you Thursday night, right?

Donald Trump: We’ll be talking. Let’s see. I don’t, frankly, I don’t like the press releases FOX put out. It’s like they’re playing games.
