After the recent reports that Fox News has openly become an extension of President Donald Trump's White House, the Democratic National Committee announced it would not partner with the network for any primary debates.
Trump responded to the news by saying that he might refuse to go to a debate for a network if he doesn't like it.
"Democrats just blocked @FoxNews from holding a debate. Good, then I think I’ll do the same thing with the Fake News Networks and the Radical Left Democrats in the General Election debates!" Trump tweeted Wednesday.

Trump might think that he's being clever, but not showing up to official debates might make him appear as if he's afraid of his challenger or doesn't think he could win the debate.
