There’s less than two weeks left until the first GOP Presidential debate takes place on August 23.

The Republican National Committee put a number of requirements in place that each candidate must meet in order to qualify for the debate.

And Donald Trump put the Republican National Committee on notice about forcing every candidate to sign this one document.

Donald Trump continues to expand his lead in the GOP Presidential Primary.

On Thursday, Fairleigh Dickinson University (FDU) released a poll showing 58 percent of likely Republican Primary voters support Trump.

With less than two weeks left until the first Primary debate, the poll also showed Trump with a 43-point lead over second place Ron DeSantis.

Donald Trump has previously hinted that he plans to skip the debate due to the massive lead he enjoys over the rest of the field.

“I might have won against Hillary with the debates and I might have gotten the nomination because of the debates,” Trump told Breitbart News when asked if he planned to participate in the debate. “But when you’re leading by 50 and 60 points against these people, and you have people at zero, and 1 and 2—and then they’re going to be asking me hostile questions and they probably won’t have much of an audience if I’m not in the debates according to what I read,” Trump continued, before adding that “if I’m not in the debates, then they’re not going to have a very big audience.”

“It seems almost like it would be foolish to do them,” Trump concluded.

Fox executives recently went to dinner with Donald Trump to try and convince him to attend the debate because they’re afraid no one will tune in without him on the stage.

But Trump has made a decision he will reveal next week.

During an interview Wednesday with Newsmax TV’s Eric Bolling, Trump said “I’ve already decided and I’ll be announcing something next week.”

However, Trump hinted he will not be attending due to his opposition to the loyalty pledge requirement.

“I have a problem with the debate for another reason,” Trump said. “I wouldn’t sign the pledge,” he continued, before asking “why would I sign a pledge if there are people on there that I wouldn’t have?”

Trump is referencing the Republican National Committee’s rule that candidates must sign a GOP loyalty pledge to support the eventual nominee in order to participate in the debate.

“So, they want you to sign a pledge, but I can name three or four people that I wouldn’t support for President,” Trump said. “So there is a problem right there.”

Ron DeSantis, Vivek Ramaswamy, and Nikki Haley have already signed their pledge and are set to participate in the debate on August 23.

Chris Christie, Mike Pence, Doug Burgum, and Tim Scott have met the qualifications and are expected to sign their loyalty pledges.

For now, Donald Trump appears to be skipping out on the debate and the pledge.

But no one really knows what Trump will do until he publicly announces his decision next week.
