Donald Trump will not make a voter summit hosted by Fox News on Wednesday, but Telemundo says that he is confirmed for Thursday’s debate that it’s co-sponsoring with CNN and Salem Radio Network.

Fox News’ Megyn Kelly is hosting a two-hour voter summit, “The Kelly File: Face to Face With the Candidates,” from Houston, with Trump’s four rivals scheduled to participate. Ted Cruz and Ben Carson will be there, and Marco Rubio and John Kasich will participate remotely. The candidates will be interviewed separately by Kelly and answer questions from the audience.

Trump’s campaign has said that he had a scheduling conflict.

“Trump’s team is correct — we only scheduled this last-minute. They were very polite & we’re happy we’ll see him in MI,” Kelly tweeted. Fox News is hosting a GOP debate on March 3 in Detroit.

Trump and his four rivals are confirmed for the CNN-Telemundo event on Thursday, at the University of Houston, according to a spokesman for the Spanish-language network. In addition to its telecast on CNN, it will be the first debate broadcast on a Spanish-language network sanctioned by the Republican National Committee.

Wolf Blitzer will moderate, and Telemundo’s Maria Celeste Arraras, Salem’s talk radio host Hugh Hewitt and CNN’s chief political correspondent Dana Bash will be on a panel asking questions. The debate’s focus will be on Latino issues.

    Keep Kelly out of the picture and there may be a debate. All she did was make it so it was not s real debate. Stupid and a waste of time with her mouth in it all the time.

    He’s busy with other things in his life that probably involves making money in some fashion. Wonder how many times he won’t be available if he should become the President?!
