BILL O’REILLY: Are you going to show up to this debate? Is this going to happen?
DONALD TRUMP: Well I am going to show up and maybe we’ll just have a chat. We might just discuss the world. We might just discuss it with ourselves. I’ve got a lot of respect for Newt, because he came in and said, ‘You know, I’ll do it immediately’, he said. And I must say I’m disappointed with Mitt Romney, because he’s been up to Trump Tower. We have a great relationship. I think he’s a nice guy and I was shocked he didn’t do the debate…
O’REILLY: Maybe he’s just tired. There’s been 3200 debates. He might be sick of it. I don’t think its about you. Do you?
TRUMP: You can’t be too tired at this point.We’re coming down to the end of the line. This is no time to be tired. I think he really should have done this debate. I think it will have tremendous viewing. I would say maybe we’ll just do a chat. Newt and I will talk about what has to be done.
O’REILLY: And you’re going to ignore Santorum?? You’re gonna say, ‘Hey get outta’ here.’
TRUMP: He’ll be there.
O’REILLY: (laughing) He’ll be there…
TRUMP: You know what? He’s not doing great in the polls, but he did accept.
O’REILLY: But he’s nice enough to show up you have to ask him a few questions.
TRUMP: And he’s been very nice and very gracious and I would absolutely have him there.
I am waiting on the Santorum campaign for a response to Trump’s remarks on O’Reilly this evening.
