(Worthy News) - A Republican National Committee conference call to discuss plans for the Oct. 28 GOP debate with top advisers to the presidential campaigns spiraled into chaos Thursday afternoon as Donald Trump threatened to pull out of the debate if his demands for the format are not met.
At issue is whether CNBC, which is hosting the debate, to be held in Boulder, Colorado, will allow candidates to give opening and closing statements.
