GOP frontrunner Donald Trump says a statement put out by Fox News yesterday was “a disgrace to good broadcasting and journalism.”

Donald Trump posted on Twitter:

Trump had called this statement provided by a Fox News spokesperson on Tuesday to a media outlet a “wise guy” press release:

We learned from a secret back channel that the Ayatollah and Putin both intend to treat Donald Trump unfairly when they meet with him if he becomes president — a nefarious source tells us that Trump has his own secret plan to replace the Cabinet with his Twitter followers to see if he should even go to those meetings.

The statement sparked Trump to say he won’t be attending Thursday’s GOP debate hosted by the network.

Trump also said:

Trump had requested that Megyn Kelly not be a moderator in Thursday’s debate because he didn’t think she was fair to him in an earlier debate hosted by Fox News.
