Don't miss the Fox News-Facebook Republican debate, Thursday August 6, live from Cleveland, Ohio at 8:50p ET, moderated by Megyn Kelly, Bret Baier and Chris Wallace.


Donald Trump spoke to "Fox and Friends" this morning ahead of the highly anticipated Fox News-Facebook Republican debate on Thursday night.

Trump said he's a "little bit nervous," but is looking forward to the event. 

He said his opponents are paying a lot of money to advisers to give them "quips" and "kill" lines to use against him.

"I don't have pollsters telling me what to say. ... I don't do that. I don't believe in it. It's not me and it really isn't them either. They pay a lot of money for these people. I guess that's what they're going to be doing, according to what all the pundits are saying," said Trump.

He said he would prefer to discuss the issues and policies, rather than attacking the other candidates. Trump said he suspects some candidates who are far down in the polls will try to make a splash by attacking him.

"Maybe they figure by hitting Trump it'll bring them up. ... I've never debated before. That's all these guys do. They don't do anything, but they debate. Every night they go in a debate with somebody," he said.

Trump also discussed how he would use business leaders in his administration and the possible presidential run by VP Joe Biden.
