Trump teases a debate announcement

Former President Donald Trump said that he has made a decision regarding his participation in the coming GOP primary debate, and will be announcing it next week.

At the moment, seven candidates out of the crowded GOP field have met the Republican National Committee’s qualifications to participate in the debate in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on August 23. Trump previously said that he would not attend the event.

In an interview with Newsmax’s Eric Bolling on Wednesday, however, the former president hinted that he may have changed his mind.

“In the past, you said, ‘It’d be stupid to go to that debate, because I’m winning,'” Bolling posed to Trump during their interview. “You’re not going to that debate, are you?”

“I’ll let it be known next week,” Trump replied.

Bolling later asked to clarify with the former president if he planned on making a decision about the debate next week, to which Trump responded that he’s “already decided, and I’ll be announcing something next week.”

This is a breaking story and will be updated as further information becomes available.
