While the first Republican Party Presidential debate is scheduled for tonight on Fox News, many eyes will instead be watching a conversation on X, formerly known as Twitter, between Tucker Carlson and President Donald J. Trump.
Trump has said he will not participate in the debate. He will be featured, however, on Carlson’s Twitter account.
“Whatever you think of Trump, he is, as of tonight, the indisputable far and away frontrunner in the Republican race,” Carlson said. “We think voters have an interest in hearing what he thinks.”
Trump approached Carlson about a conversation for a “far larger audience” than he’d receive on cable news. Carlson said his team “happily accepted.”
“That interview will air tonight in this space at 8:55 (7:55 Iowa time),” Carlson said. “We hope you’ll watch.”
