Trump criticizes Bachmann for saying no to his debate

Donald Trump says he’s disappointed Michele Bachmann is declining to participate in a NewsMax debate he will moderate later this month in Iowa.

Speaking Friday morning on the Fox Business Network Trump noted Bachmann has spent a lot time courting him and that he’s tried to help her.

“She’d come up to see me four times… she’d call me, she’d ask me for advice, ” said Trump. “She said if she wins, she’d like to think about me for the vice presidency….all of these things and most importantly, I did like a two-hour phone call for her…after all of that, she just announced she’s not going to do the debate.” said Trump, “How do you do that?”

Bachmann is not the only candidate who’s chosen to stay away from what’s being called the “Trump Debate.”

Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, Rick Perry, and Jon Huntsman have all declined to participate in the debate. Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum appear to be the only candidates willing to take part in the forum.

    I’m sick of this bloated loser. Thank god Ron Paul stood up to him.

    The most amazing thing about Trump is his complete lack of self-awareness. This guy actually believes that he is a suitable candidate for the presidency. “The Donald,” ask yourself this. How weird do you have to be to make Michelle Bachmann back away?

    …said Trump. “She said if she wins, she’d like to think about me for the vice presidency…

    awwww. Isn’t it fun to see the scammer get scammed? Nice job, Rep. Bachmann!

    U.S.A. only deserves incompetent leaders.

    See the way they treat the few who would be able to change the situation to the better. A nation of wild animals, electing their president because of the colour of his wife´s hat.

    Despite media and celebrity foolishness like what is portrayed in this story, there are still educated, intelligent people that attempt to make informed decisions in elections, not “wild animals” as was so eloquently coined. And if you’re going to comment on American politics, at least spell “color” the right way.
