Trump skips second GOP debate to deliver rival speech in Detroit

Former President Donald Trump will skip the second Republican presidential primary debate in California next week to deliver a competing speech in Detroit the same evening, his campaign confirmed.

The exact time and audience are not yet clear, but the New York Times first reported that Trump would skip the debate in California in favor of remarks to a union audience. Trump will speak in the same city as where Members of United Auto Workers have taken to the picket lines to demand higher wages, better work schedules and better working conditions.

The former president’s upcoming speech comes as polls show him as the strong Republican frontrunner, a reason he has given for skipping the debates entirely. The former president skipped the first GOP debate for a primetime interview with Tucker Carlson.

a new CBS News poll found that Trump defeated President Biden in a head-to-head matchup, with Trump at 50% and Mr. Biden at 49%.
