Donald Trump’s decision to skip the upcoming second Republican debate in California and instead travel to Michigan, to address union members has ignited a fresh wave of criticism. Here’s the full story.
Absence From All Debates
This move marks the former president’s absence from all debates leading up to the 2024 election.
In a recent interview with NBC News, Trump commented on the ongoing strike by auto workers after negotiations with the nation’s largest automakers stalled.
Leadership Is Bad
“The auto workers are being sold down the river by their leadership, and their leadership should endorse Trump,” he said.
Fighting the Billionaire Class
However, Trump’s remarks drew a sharp response from United Automobile Workers President Shawn Fain. Fain wrote, “Every fiber of our union is being poured into fighting the billionaire class and an economy that enriches people like Donald Trump at the expense of workers.”
We Can’t Keep Electing Billionaires
“We can’t keep electing billionaires and millionaires that don’t have any understanding of what it is like to live paycheck to paycheck and struggle to get by and expect them to solve the problems of the working class,” he added.
Christie Shared His Thoughts
Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie offered his thoughts on Trump’s reluctance to participate in debates, suggesting that fear may be a motivating factor.
Trump Is Afraid
“Obviously, he’s afraid. He’s afraid to get on the stage against people who are serious,” Christie said during an interview.
Trump Doesn’t Care About the Country
“If he really cares about the country — and I have deep questions about that — but if he really cares about the country, then he’s going to get up there, and he shouldn’t be afraid,” Christie continued.
“If, in fact, his ideas are so great, if his leadership is so outstanding, then his lead will only increase if he gets on the stage, not decrease,” he added.
Trump Gave His Reasons
In May, Trump cited his strong poll numbers as a reason for his reluctance to engage in debates, saying, “I’m leading by 40 points. A lot of people say, ‘Why would you do a debate when you have people at two and three and fifteen and fourteen [percent]?’”
Stop Being a Coward
The absence of his voice in these events has led to a chorus of opinions on social media and in political circles. One Twitter user wrote, “Will Donald Trump finally stop being a coward and show up to debate?”
Trump Is a Liar
Another user added, “Trump is a liar, a petulant child, and a failure. Chip in $1, make sure Christie is on the stage so he can expose him.”
A third user commented, “Troublemaker! Just what the American people want another 4 years of constant fighting and trouble. We want someone to do what we pay for them to do. Christie is like the mean girls in Junior High.”
Everybody’s Going to Bring up January 6th
A fourth user wrote, “Donald Trump is afraid to debate because everybody’s going to bring up January 6th and blame him.”
