Trump May Join Primary Debates, New Interview Reveals

Former President Donald Trump revealed Thursday that he may join future Republican primary debates after previously stating he did not plan to do so.

Trump shared the comments during an interview on Todd Starnes' radio show white discussing the primary debates.

"Do you anticipate at some point jumping into the debates?" Trump was asked during the Todd Starnes' radio show.

"I might. I mean, you know, it's possible. I liked debating. I guess I won because of the debates," he 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."

The new shift comes as Trump's poll number took a slight drop after the first GOP debate, according to a new survey.

"A new Emerson College Polling survey of U.S. voters following the August Republican Primary debate finds half of the Republican Primary voters (50%) plan to vote for Donald Trump, the lowest support to date for the former President in Emerson national polls," Emerson College Polling reported.

"Trump’s support has dropped by six percentage points since last week’s pre-debate national poll," it added.

During the first debate, Trump held a pre-recorded interview with Tucker Carlson that was released directly to X (formerly Twitter) during the time of the debate.

The video passed 100 million views within less than 24 hours, with more than 200 million views soon reached.

The new announcement also comes with excitement for many Americans who are eager to see Trump interact with the top presidential candidates.
