    Huckabee, Santorum to join Trump at veterans rally

    Huckabee, Santorum to join Trump at veterans rally

    Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee and former senator of Pennsylvania Rick Santorum will attend a pro-veterans rally hosted by fellow GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump on Thursday evening, an event the billionaire real estate mogul organized to counterprogram the seventh GOP debate hosted by Fox News.

    Huckabee will attend the event after participating in Thursday night’s "undercard" debate, according to one of his campaign advisers. A Santorum adviser confirmed the former senator's appearance.

    Tensions have flared between Fox News and Trump in recent days, beginning with demands from the Trump campaign that the news network revoke reporter Megyn Kelly’s invitation to moderate the debate. Kelly and Trump clashed during the first Republican debate in August after Kelly asked the candidate about disparaging comments he had made about women.

    [How Bill O’Reilly tried to talk Donald Trump into doing the Fox News debate]

    Trump has frequently attacked Kelly’s professionalism since, accusing her of treating him unfairly. At one point, Trump stirred controversy for seemingly referencing Kelly’s menstrual cycle while talking about the tone of her questions. "You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes," he said during an interview on CNN after the August debate. "Blood coming out of her wherever."

    The feud escalated after Fox refused to take Kelly off the stage. The organization not only refused to meet Trump's demands, it also released a mocking news release castigating Trump for refusing to participate: “We learned from a secret back channel that the Ayatollah and Putin both intend to treat Donald Trump unfairly when they meet with him if he becomes president.”

    Trump’s campaign announced Tuesday that he would not attend the debate, accusing the network of using the billionaire to increase its ratings and advertising revenue. The campaign will instead host an event to benefit a veteran’s charity Thursday night in Des Moines. Doors open at 7 p.m. Central time.

    Huckabee told CNN that his participation should not be seen as a slight against Fox News, where he hosted a television program for years.

    "I'm not invited to the main stage," Huckabee said. "I would love to have been on that stage."

    4.5 million likes already? Then that means they're going to watch!! Oh wow! This is so exciting. I'm really glad Huck and Santorum will be there, shows unity for the Vets!!



    You know, this is really amazing. Trump putting something like this together basically in a 1/2 day. Found the space, set up the ticket sales, arranged the mechanism for ear-marked donations for the Vets, arranged the Vets to come, arranged the hall for the event. Wow!! He's a very hard efficient worker, planner, doer! That's what he likes, that standing there listening to stupid people ask stupid questions to be answered by stupid people .... that would be hard for him. He may not do any more debates. Debate World may be over. He said he thought 6 were enough and people need to do other better things.

    Works for me!!

    Megyn Kelly Interviews Donald Trump Prior to Presidential Republican Debate and Announcing Run



    Published on May 20, 2015

    Watch Megyn Kelly interviewing Donald Trump before the 1st GOP Republican debate and before he announced running for president.

    Megyn Kelly from Fox News The Kelly File interviews Donald Trump on a few of the current events and how he would handle them if he were president.

    Megyn asked Donald Trump the same question she asked Jeb Bush about if you knew then what you know now about the Iraq intelligence would you still have gone to war. He answered that in 2004 he was opposed to going to war to begin with and we never should have gone in.

    Megyn Kelly asked him if he has to be nuts running for president, and did the crazy whistle showing off her whistling skills.

    Trump is definitely doing the right thing by boycotting the Fox debate and having his own event.

    STAY TRUE!! STAY TRUMP!!
