"Trump is polling around 20% nationally, and Christie is polling around 3%. Fox News hopes having two loose canons front and center will escalate from predictable verbal insults to a probable physical altercation between Christie and Trump. I hope they kill each other," said Republican presidential candidate and former Governor of Florida Jeb Bush, speaking on behalf of himself and the other participants.
|Fox "News" is holding the first debate of Republican presidential candidates on August 6th.|
The network has decided only to allow the top ten candidates in national polling.
"Oh, I know what Trump has been saying about me. I also heard he demanded he be able to bring a bottle of pepper spray just in case I 'violated his personal space' on Thursday. Fox News told me they are letting him bring that and a walking cane with a bronze handle of his face due to a 'golfing accident.' I told them I didn't need to bring anything," said Christie.
