The network announced a town hall with Trump for two days later, on Tuesday, which will be moderated by Laura Ingraham.

PREVIOUSLY, Feb. 13: Fox News has scheduled another town hall with former President Donald Trump, this time a pre-taped event February 20 in South Carolina and hosted by Laura Ingraham.

The event will take place at 7 p.m. ET in Spartanburg Memorial Auditorium in advance of the South Carolina primary on February 24.

On her show the night before the New Hampshire primary, Ingraham said Trump’s remaining rival in the GOP primary race, Nikki Haley, “is finished, and prolonging the obvious is just ensuring that she has no political future. It’s not really going to hurt Trump at this point. Well, maybe she has a political future if you think Liz Cheney has a bright political future.”

Fox News hosted a live town hall with Trump on January 10, just before the Iowa caucuses, with anchors Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum moderating. The network hosted a town hall with Haley on January 8.

Haley has criticized Trump for refusing to participate in a GOP debate. The former president skipped all of the GOP gatherings this cycle.
