Donald Trump Slams CNN Hours Before Debate Even Starts
The business mogul says the event is too long and too many people will be on stage with him.
The second GOP presidential debate hasn't even happened yet and Donald Trump is already taking shots at network host CNN.
Around 1 p.m. Pacific, the business mogul tweeted that CNN is "milking" Wednesday's debate for too long with a three-hour time slot and is allowing too many candidates on stage.
Will be heading over to the debate soon. Can you believe @CNN is "milking" it for almost 3 hours? Too long, too many people on stage!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 16, 2015
At least with the Fox News debate — the first of the election season, which drew a record audience of 24 million viewers — the former Apprentice host waited until after the event to scold the network and host Megyn Kelly.
.@FoxNews you should be ashamed of yourself. I got you the highest debate ratings in your history & you say nothing but bad...— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 7, 2015
Chief Washington correspondent and anchor Jake Tapper is moderating Wednesday's debate.
