2024 US election: Trump fires back after Republican party opponents take turns bashing him for skipping debate

Trump, the former President who was thoroughly criticized by his primary opponent now has something to say. During the second Republican party presidential debate, he made it known that it was “much more important” for him to work to “save” American autoworkers on Wednesday night, September 27 rather than being present due to his massive lead in the primary polls.

Contrary to his opponent’s expectation, Trump was absent at the second Republican debate in Simi Valley, California. His opponent has brought him up several times hammering on the need for Trump to defend the record of his administration.
“I thought it was much more important, considering I have a 56-point lead, for me to be dealing with the UAW and the fact at the Biden Administration is going to destroy their jobs over the next two years by going all electric vehicle,” Trump told Fox News Digital on Wednesday night.

At Clinton Township, Michigan Wednesday night, Trump plead with the crowd of autoworkers to vote him, and had promised that the future of the automobile will be “Made in America.”

“The crowd was incredible—unreal,” he said. “I think we have great support to save the autoworker.”

Chris Christie, the former New Jersey Gov, expressed his disappointment at Trump during the debate. He focused on the camera and said:

“Donald, I know you’re watching. You can’t help yourself,” Christie said. “You’re ducking these things. And let me tell you what’s going to happen. You keep doing that, no one here’s going to call you Donald Trump anymore.”
He also added: “We’re going to call you Donald Duck.”

Adding to the list, Ron DeSaintis, the former presidential candidate calls out Trump for being absent for the second primary debate.

Trump dismissed the nickname and said he had not been watching, and that such nickname shouldn’t come from someone running for president.

From the last survey in August which he got 53% voters support got to 60% Republican primary voters supporting him for the GOP nomination. This is according to the most recent Fox News poll.

Meanwhile, Desantis’ received a double-digit support of 13% and Ramaswamy 11% out of the other candidates.

And Nikki Haley sits at 5%, with Mike Pence and Scott at 3% each. Christie is polling at 2%, with the remaining GOP candidates receiving less than 1%.

With the observation from a new Washingtin Post/ABC poll, the support Trump has gotten over the weekend, he is likely to win over Biden with 52% to 42% if the presidential election were to be held today. He is leading Biden by 10 points in a head-to-head general election survey amount of voters.
