DeSantis says Trump should debate him and Haley in Iowa

DES MOINES — Florida Governor Ron DeSantis says former President Trump should show up next week to a debate in Iowa.

CNN announced Trump, DeSantis and Haley had met the polling requirements to be included in the network’s debate that’s scheduled for January 10th. “He was invited. He declined. I’m debating Nikki Haley. And what does he do? He schedules a town hall on Fox News to compete with the debate that we’re going to be doing,” DeSantis says. “Why would you not just show up to the debate at that point?”

Trump’s town hall on Fox and the DeSantis-Haley debate on CNN will air at exactly the same time next Wednesday night.

Vivek Ramaswamy says he’ll tape a town hall with podcaster Tim Pool that will also air at 7 p.m. next Tuesday.
