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. 

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

Chief Washington correspondent and anchor Jake Tapper is moderating Wednesday's debate.
