At the request of many, and even though I expect it to be a very boring two hours, I will be covering the Democrat Debate live on twitter!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 13, 2015
Millions of people watched the first two Republican debates, and Trump has taken credit for dramatically boosting viewership. His debate style is unlike that of most presidential candidates, and he's not afraid to crack jokes during serious questions, mock his opponents' appearances and speak in the third-person. In both debates, he dominated the time clock, speaking for far longer than anyone else on stage. Trump warned on Monday that the Democratic debate will likely be far less engaging and entertaining.
"I think it's not going to be very well rated, because Trump isn't in the debate," Trump told reporters on Monday at a bipartisan political convention in Manchester, N.H. He quickly added: "I'm only kidding... You're going to watch it for 10 or 15 minutes, people are going to get bored and turn it off."
Update, 12:43 p.m.: The Clinton campaign reacts.
