The New York Times reported today that the right-wing magazine Newsmax will have Donald Trump moderate a Republican presidential debate later this month.
Tonight on Fox News' Special Report, anchor Bret Baier aired a portion of a phone interview he conducted with Trump about the debate. Trump told Baier, "Sometime after that debate, I'll probably endorse somebody."
What is going on here?
What guarantee does anyone have that Trump hasn't made up his mind already? What's to stop him from manipulating the debate to aid his favored candidate?
Given Trump's shameful promotion of the birther myth during his flirtation with a presidential run, and his tenuous relationship with facts, there's no reason to believe that he'll behave responsibly now.
