Trump and Kasich refused to go to the Fox News debate so that it got canceled, but are now going to do a prime-time event with CNN on Monday night. The big difference is this is individual interviews and not a collective debate:
CNN announced today that Anderson Cooper and Wolf Blitzer will host a three-hour primetime event with both Republican and Democratic presidential hopefuls on Monday March 21 from 8 to 11 pm ET. The event will take place just before the ‘Western Tuesday’ primary contests in Arizona, Utah and Idaho (D).
Donald Trump, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, Ohio Governor John Kasich and Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will each be individually interviewed in the CNN Election Center in Washington, D.C. while Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders will be interviewed from the campaign trail.
The event will air from 8-11 pm ET on CNN, CNN International and CNN en Espanol, and will be live-streamed online and across mobile devices via CNNgo.
This just proves that Trump is worried about his lead and doesn’t want to debate Cruz man to man. His excuse about his AIPAC speech was just another lie.
