Fox News: Donald Trump Is Afraid Of Megyn Kelly

Donald Trump says he might not attend Thursday's Fox News debate if host Megyn Kelly doesn't treat him "fairly."

Donald Trump claims he might not go to Fox News' next Republican debate, and the network says it's because he's afraid of one of its hosts. 

Trump told CNN he may skip Thursday night's primary debate if Fox's Megyn Kelly doesn't treat him "fairly."

"If I think I'm going to be treated unfairly I'll do something else. I don't think she can treat me fairly. I think she is very biased and I don't think she's going to treat me fairly," said Trump.

Fox News fired back at Trump in a statement, saying: "Sooner or later, Donald Trump, even if he's president, is going to have to learn that he doesn't get to pick the journalists. We're very surprised he's willing to show that much fear about being questioned by Megyn Kelly."

This isn't the first time Trump has threatened to skip a debate. In October, he said he wouldn't attend the CNBC debate if the network didn't change certain criteria, which it later did. 

And in December, he said he wouldn't attend CNN's debate unless it donated $5 million to a veterans charity. It didn't, but Trump was still on stage
