Trump demands CNN pay him $5M to participate in next debate

Source: CBS

MACON, Georgia -- Business mogul Donald Trump demanded on Monday that CNN, the host of the next GOP debate, pay him $5 million dollars to participate, with the proceeds to be donated to veterans.

"I won't do the debate unless they pay me 5 million dollars," Trump said.
snip>
Trump made the demands at a rally in Macon, Georgia as a result of what he deemed unfair treatment by the network of his candidacy, including a meeting with African-American pastors earlier in the day at Trump Tower. At first he seemed unsure. Trump asked the crowd if he should make the payment a condition of his participation in the debate.

"You have to tell me because I know what they're going to say," Trump said. "Trump is a chicken."

"If I do this, it could be he's playing too cute, Trump said. "[And] maybe I don't do well, and maybe my real polls, which are the polls we're leading by so much, maybe they go down." Trump also said he could face repercussions in the polls as a result of the gambit of not participating in the debate.

2. Call His Bluff CNN - Don't Pay Him A Cent.....

You are sponsoring the debate so he could show what he is made of to become president of the U.S.

If he doesn't get paid - it's at his peril. The other candidates will be able to take advantage of his not showing up and gain or maybe even surpass his lead. He's only hurting himself. Call his bluff - don't pay him. Let him sit home and watch the debate and what the other candidates will have to say about him not being there.

After the debate is over - and he is taken down a notch - donate $5 million to the veterans. The veterans win. The American People win. CNN wins for standing up to this bully. And Trump loses.

52. He probably will

CNN will tell him to shove it, he will say that they're anti-American troops, and he'll magnanimously give a veteran's organization the five million dollars anyway. It will buy him way more publicity than spending it on TV and radio advertising.

How far would a mere $100,000 per state go in each of them for billboards and ads? Not as far as this gambit is likely to go. And in the end CNN gets lousy ratings for the Trump-less debate, who's going to watch GOP candidates avoid beating up on Ben Carson?

No doubt, a biased mind will allow mere implication to indicate anything which better validates the bias, regardless of a lack or premise or conclusion. Innuendo is a wonderful tool for anyone with a dramatic lack of substantive response... like a bumper-sticker, but without the depth or the wit.

18. In a nutshell? Trump has an attention seeking ego and always has and this currently feeds it

(much like a drug addict) which is why he is doing what he doing and it has nothing to do with him wanting to be President and in fact he doesnt really want to "be" President at all he just wants the attention that he is getting.
When that attention fades (and it will) he go and do something else to get his next fix just like any other drug addict.

86. Right. Standard Trump: Braggidochio + slap at GOP and CNN.

For the fade, though? Haven't his supporters surprised us all?

I'm wondering if Trump has become addicted to the heightened attention of a candidate. He has supposedly pledged to spend a billion on his election, and the laughable has become shockingly possible. Trump may just not fade until November 6, and even after of course.

What do you want to bet he already sees himself as a magnificent "statesman" on the world stage? An easy guess is that Trump will always be eager to give the world the benefit of his wisdom, and especially the next president...

We have calculators, we have a team of fact-checkers from various left-leaning websites, and for every factually incorrect statement you make during that time, we will deduct 1 question from your Q&A."

Give to a group or don't, but don't play games to make others give what you won't.

62. I'd really like someone to leak undoctored financial data on him.

My bet is that he isn't nearly as rich as he lets on.
Probably just a poser who has more debt than assets by now, certainly never struck me as a 'financial genius'.

65. How does he ever get his head through a doorway? His ego has no bounds.

69. The dipshit brags about having $10 B. Why doesn't he just write a check?

$5 M is 0.05%.

71. This is my new default response to anything Donald Trump says.



I know, it seems simple and trite, but honestly it works just about every time. Not hard given the fact the man is completely incapable of giving any sort of informed insight as to basically anything.

72. He tried this with an earlier debate as well...demanded payment for participation

I think it was CNN that got extorted as time as well.

To the best of my knowledge whichever channel it was didn't cave because if they had you know Trump would have bragged about it for weeks.

Given the FOX News debate exposed him as a nasty thin skinned jackass vis a vis his continuing feud with Megyn Kelly you'd think Trump would demand payment from them next time around as well.

78. Just when you think things couldn't get any more surreal..

There comes something like this. I, too, had to check The Onion and Borowitz. I should know by now to expect crap like this from Trump.

79. I think he is trying to bail out. His ego will not let him quit, but if CNN doesn't pay him, he

might consider that as non-payment for services as an entertainer and not show up. He has to figure some way out where he is not thought of as having quit.

83. If there were any question whether the GOP nomination is performance art...

... I think Mr Trump just answered it.

Why the multi-billionaire can't find five mil in his own pockets to help veterans, if they concern him so, is a question that will doubtless be left unanswered.

When you have a circus-performing jackass for a candidate. T-Rump just loves reality TV!

89. And this is how the negotiations would unfold



They could even call the GOP debate "The Mousy Dung Hour"

What Paddy Chayefsky wrote as satire in the 1970's has become reality in the 21st Century.

90. The corp. media that beats the war drums should pay 5 Mil to Wounded Warriors.


I don't care who it is making the demand. Some things should transcend politics.

91. There was nowhere near 5,500

I live in Macon. If 5,500 people show up in one area, you know it here. 1000 would be a very liberal estimate of the actual crowd.
