The next primary debate is set for Thursday night in Des Moines on Fox News Channel. It’s the final face-off among the GOP candidates before the Iowa caucus. But the frontrunner thinks Megyn Kelly has a “bias” and that should prevent her from a return as co-moderator.
Based on @MegynKelly's conflict of interest and bias she should not be allowed to be a moderator of the next debate.

No chance of that happening says a Fox News spokesperson: “Megyn Kelly has no conflict of interest. Donald Trump is just trying to build up the audience for Thursday’s debate, for which we thank him.”
Trump has had it out for Kelly since the first GOP debate 5 months ago (which happened to be the most-watched non-sports cable news program ever) when he took offense to her line of questioning.
Despite his position on Kelly, Trump continues to appear on Fox News. In fact, he’ll be on Jeanine Pirro‘s show at 9 p.m. ET.
