Donald Trump appeared on "Hannity" tonight to react to the Fox News Republican debate.

Trump said that he refused to take the pledge to not run as a third-party candidate because he didn't want to give up his leverage with the Republican Party.

"If they don't treat me well, Sean, why should I make that pledge?" Trump asked. "At this moment, it's great leverage, and I might as well use it."

"I just want to be treated well and treated with respect."
