Washington (August 21,2023) : Former President Donald Trump has confirmed that he will skip the first two Republican presidential primary debates. Trump made the announcement in a post on his social media platform, Truth Social. Trump said that he is skipping the debates because he is "leading the field by such a wide margin" that he does not need to participate. He also said that he believes the moderators of the debates are "biased" against him.

Trump's decision to skip the debates is a major blow to the Commission on Presidential Debates, which organizes the debates. The commission has said that it is "disappointed" by Trump's decision and that it hopes he will reconsider.

Trump's decision is also likely to have a significant impact on the Republican presidential primary. His absence from the debates will give his rivals a chance to get more attention and to make their case to voters. It is still unclear whether Trump will participate in any future debates. He has said that he will make a decision on a case-by-case basis. The first Republican presidential primary debate is scheduled for August 23 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The second debate is scheduled for August 29 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Trump's decision to skip the debates is a risky move. It could alienate some voters who are looking for a candidate who is willing to engage in the political process. However, it could also help him to avoid making any mistakes that could hurt his chances of winning the nomination. Only time will tell what the long-term impact of Trump's decision will be. But one thing is for sure: it is sure to be a major talking point in the Republican presidential primary.
