Donald Trump may scrap GOP debate

WASHINGTON -- Donald Trump said Friday he might scrub a GOP presidential debate that so far has drawn only Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum.

Trump had hoped for all the Republican candidates to join in a debate he would moderate Dec. 27 in Iowa. Most have decided not to.

"I have to look into it," Trump told Fox Business Network when asked whether he would host a two-candidate debate.

Trump was most indignant about Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann skipping out.

"She came up to see me four times. She would call me and ask me for advice," Trump said. "She said if she wins, she would like to think about me for the vice presidency. Most importantly, I did a two-hour phone call for her with her people. ... And after all that, she announced she was not going to do the debate. It's called loyalty. How do you do that? It's amazing to me."
