Why won't Donald Trump debate Ted Cruz?

Is he chicken?  Is he afraid?

His people will make excuses: it’s the smart thing to do.  What if he accidentally flubs and stops momentum?  Why take the chance?

I don’t buy it.  He exited Fox’s forthcoming debate, formerly scheduled for next week, because he fears that Cruz, who is in second place in the GOP presidential race, will beat him.  That’s the way it looks.  In schoolyard terms, he’s running from a one-on-one, a mano-a-mano.  That’s not the way to win respect – especially from the tough, politically incorrect base that seems to make up much of his support.  I’m surprised they aren’t making a fuss.  If Trump is going to kick butt in Washington and make America great again, what’s he doing backing down from mild-mannered Ted Cruz?


Whatever the reason, he won’t meet Cruz on the playing field.  He’s backed out, canceled his appearance on what was to be the next Fox debate.  This lack of courage on Trump’s part is a travesty.  It’s a disservice to the very people he hopes to win and lead.  Fear of making a wrong move on the debate stage is not the way a potential president of the United States should be thinking.


If Donald Trump won’t debate Cruz one-one, Republican voters should take the cue.  He’s afraid.  He doesn’t have the answers.  He’s not who his supporters think he is.  On the other hand, if he does debate, it shows he thinks more of the country than just his own fate.  That’s what America deserves in a candidate.  It has it in Cruz, who will debate Trump anywhere, any time.  Does it have it in Trump.  Does Trump care about the country?  Or only himself?

This is the most crucial question at this point in the Republican debate.  Voters deserve to know.
