7:06 am
with a press release mocking trump reading in part "we learned from a secret back channel that the ayatollah and putin both intend to treat donald trump unfairly" and "trump has his own secret plan to replace the cabinet with his twitter followers." >> they can't toy with me like they toy with everybody else. so let them have their debate and let's see how they do with the ratings. >> reporter: as for megyn kelly -- this >> this is a lightweight. megyn kelly shouldn't be in the >> reporter: the fox news anchor saying overnight her question to trump is the first debate about his treatment of women was fair game. >> i maintain it was a tough but fair question and we agreed to disagree. >> reporter: i asked trump if his rivals will now use this to their advantage. do you think by skipping the debate they'll attack your temperament. >> no, i think my temperament is great. i built a great corporation. i built a great company but i think when fox sends out their little like written by a child
7:07 am
cetera, then i say let them have their debate. >> reporter: but overnight senator ted cruz insinuating trump is scared of megyn kelly. >> if he's unwilling to stand on the debate stage with the other candidates then i would like to invite donald right now to engage in a one-on-one debate with me any time between now and the iowa caucuses. >> reporter: now trump has a new fight brewing over his religion. jeb bush questioning if trump is even a christian at all. >> you don't think he's a christian. >> no, i don't know what he is. >> reporter: and this morning ted cruz hammering that attack about donald trump skipping the debate. he's actually launched a website called where he attacks had imfor missing the debate. as for fox news they released a statement overnight that reads in part "we can't give in to
7:08 am
of employees." >> let's talk to his campaign manager. you heard it right there, cory. mr. trump is still welcome at the debate. any chance he'll show? >> well, george, it's great -- thanks for having me on. the short answer, i don't think so. look, here's where we are, megyn kelly is totally obsessed with mr. trump. she's done multiple shows on why he shouldn't be even involved in the race on television. she's completely obsessed with him. it's impossible to have a fair and honest debate. >> you know -- >> hold on, donald trump is the best debater on that stage. he's participated in six debates. he's won every single one by every poll. he's not afraid to debate anybody. he does more television and radio interviews than all other candidates combined and answered your questions including yours multiple times. the issue is one of fairness. >> let me press you on that, corey. >> mocking a front-runner, that's not appropriate to have someone like that on the debate stage. >> that's a separate issue from megyn kelly because, you know, you say that megyn kelly appears
7:09 am
trump. right now it appears that he seems to be obsessed with her. jut put out a tweet saying i refuse call megyn kelly a bimbo because that would not be politically correct. instead i will only call her a lightweight reporter. why not go up on the stage and take the question. >> look, he's not afraid to take the question. been on six debate stages and won every single one and every poll said that and answers every question from every reporter including yours. he's happy to sit dunn and do interviews and answer the questions that the american people want to hear about. what fox wants to do is they want to have 24 million people tune in to watch donald trump so that their anchors can have the story about them. this is what happened in the first fox debate. no one was talking about the answers that the candidates gave, they were all talking about the moderator's questions, the exact same thing that happened with cnbc and the rnc removed them from future debates --
7:10 am
about how about ted cruz's challenge, a one-on-one debate with donald trump before the iowa caucuses? >> look, ted cruz, if he's the last man standing and it comes down to a two-person race donald him. ted cruz talked about how gait his campaign is and has the greatest ground game in the history of iowa. what we see is his position on ethanol has flipped and flopped and governor bransome has said he should not be elected in the state of iowa, a remarkable feat for a sitting governor. we see that number of people have come out and basically said mr. trump is the best person in this race for the state of iowa and moving forward including -- >> corey -- >> including jerry falwell jr. it's up to the people of iowa to decide who ultimately on monday will be the caucus winner but i can tell you donald trump is in the state of iowa competing every dhar for votes. pro. aren't you worried about that possibility of an empty podium at tomorrow night's debate? >> look, you know what it is, when donald trump goes tomorrow
7:11 am
we start raising money forounded warriors have multiples of millions of dollars raised for them and the american people tune in because they want to support that and fox goes back and say theyave had 24 million watching their debate instead of 1 million it's a disservice to the american people. you and i both know the only reason their ratings are as high the first debate is because donald trump was on the stage. highest rated cable television show in the history of tv andd trump was on the stage. people who bought advertising time thinking donald trump will ould disappointed when nobody decides to watch it because politicians are all talk, no action.

7:14 am
trump and that big decision. let me begin with you, you just heard corey and trump won't show tomorrow night. does this hurt him or help him. >> we've gone from uncharted compass. i have no idea what this is going to do. i think it all turns on whether the voters in iowa think that it's a sign of strength that he's not doing it or a sign ofe don't know right now what the perception will be and that's where i think it will turn whether it's an asset or liability over the in ex-five day. >> what has worked for now he always appears to be strong and always to be unafraid to say whatever is on his mind. you've been reporting. his opponents saying he'aking tough questions. >> oh, and this is an incredibly high risk move, george, at a really bizarre time. everything seemed to bep's way. he was moving ahead, his largest margin nationally, moving ahead in iowa and then he does this
7:15 am
corey about of having ant center stage, already his opponents are saying this is a sign that donald trump is just afraid to come out, at a fight and that is high risk. >> so going back to your analysis, matthew, is this seen as strength or weakness, what's your gut on where that goes? >> the short term reaction i think his voters, donald trump's voters will see it as a sign of strength. i think that's what the immediate reaction will be. on his capacity to grow because others see it as a sign of weakness but for the short term up to iowa i think they'll see it as a sign of >> thanks very much. a clarification from yesterday's interview with donald trump. i incorrectly identified a republican strategist in one of my questions, it was henry barber, not haley barbour. i apologize. a 23-year-old american
