Donald Trump will not be speaking at a meeting for conservative activists, after "degrading" comments about a female television anchor after the presidential candidate debate Thursday.
Trump was originally scheduled to give a speech at a conference in Atlanta, organized by the influential conservative group Red State, on Saturday night local time. The leader of the group, Erick Erickson, says he has withdrawn Trumps invitation because of what he describes as "degrading" statements about Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly.
She was one of three moderators during the first major debate between the Republican presidential candidates in Cleveland on Thursday.
During the debate Kelly asked Trump to respond to derogatory statements about women that he has made previously, but Trump dismissed the question.
Erickson in a statement on Facebook is referring to a comment Trump gave to CNN after the debate: "You could see that there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her.. wherever. "
- His comment about Megyn Kelly was way out of line, says Erickson. He said that he has now invited Kelly to join the conference instead of Trump.
- This is just another example of weakness by being politically correct, according to a statement from Trump's campaigning team.
