• Trump: CNBC Debate Will Be ‘Very Unfair’

    Billionaire businessman Donald Trump warned that CNBC’s Wednesday night’s third GOP debate won’t be fair, even though the network has agreed to shorten the event as he has requested.

    “I am now in Colorado looking forward to what I am sure will be a very unfair debate!” Trump wrote on Twitter after an event in Iowa, where his polling numbers have dropped to second place.

    Trump also criticizing the business network for their polling results released this morning.

    “Does anybody think that CNBC will get their fictitious polling numbers corrected sometime prior to the start of the debate. Sad!” he tweeted.

    Trump was unseated as the front-runner in Iowa polls this week and practically pleaded voters for support at a Tuesday evening in the Hawkeye state.

    “Iowa, will you get your numbers up, please?” Trump said during the event. “I promise you I will do such a good job.”

    Trump and several other GOP candidates were annoyed the CNBC debate initially did not include opening or closing statements or a time limit. The candidates threatened to boycott the debate earlier this month if the network did not alter its format, prompting CNBC to cave in to the demands.

    The top 10 GOP primary candidates will square off on the campus of the University of Colorado in the main debate at 8:00 p.m.
