Trump backs out of Trump Debate

Donald Trump canceled the debate he was to “moderate” in Iowa on December 27th citing concerns by GOP candidates that he might run as an independent.  Trump said he could not conclusively agree not to run since the Republican who wins the GOP nomination might not be the right person to defeat Obama and Obama’s defeat may all be left up to the Good Donald.

Trump said:

“The Republican Party candidates are very concerned that sometime after the final episode of The Apprentice, on May 20th, when the equal time provisions are no longer applicable to me, I will announce my candidacy for President of the United States as an Independent and that, unless I conclusively agree not to run as an Independent, they will not agree to attend or be a part of the Newsmax debate scheduled for December 27, 2011…
Therefore, so that there is no conflict of interest within the Republican Party, I have decided not to be the moderator of the Newsmax debate… I must leave all of my options open….
