Trump: No Gary Johnson or Jill Stein in Debates

Donald Trump said Thursday night that he doesn’t want to share the presidential debate stage with anyone other than Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Appearing on Larry King’s RT America show Politicking, the real-estate mogul said Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein should not be involved because they aren’t likely to obtain the presidency. “I’d rather it be Hillary and myself,” he asserted. “We’re the only two with a chance at winning.” Trump said they both “seem to be going down a little bit” but that “we’ll see what happens.” In order for Johnson or Stein to take part in the debates, they would have to reach 15 percent in a five-poll average; but recent numbers show Johnson polling around 9 percent and Stein around 3 percent.
