Donald Trump decided not to do the first GOP debate.
Instead, Trump did an interview with Tucker Carlson that got over 90 million views in 3 hours.
In lieu of attending the first Republican primary debate, former President Donald Trump released an interview with Tucker Carlson that was watched 90 million times in three hours, according to the view counter displayed on twitter.
Carlson released the interview five minutes before the GOP primary debate began in Milwaukee at 9:00 p.m. EDT. Within twenty minutes, the video view counter showed 33 million, as Breitbart News reported.
By 12:00 a.m. EDT, the video received more than 90 million views, according to the social platform now known as X.
Trump might not sit out of every debate, however.
He told Todd Starnes that he might not boycott the remaining debates.
Former President Trump skipped the first GOP primary debate hosted by Fox News but he told Todd Starnes he isn’t necessarily boycotting the remaining ones.
“Do you anticipate at some point jumping into the debates?” Starnes asked the Republican presidential frontrunner.
“I might,” Trump responded. “I mean, you know, it’s possible.”
“I liked debating. I guess I won because of the debates,” Trump said. “You know, they’ve been very good to me, so I might, but at this moment, I’m leading by so much that it seems to be foolish to do it.”
