5:32 pm
debate stage, could still steal the show. >> well, at this point, it does appear that donald trump is declining his last and best chance to speak to as many iowans as possible. >> reporter: that admission from megyn kelly, coming soon after fox news heavyweight bill o'reilly pleaded with trump to change his mind. >> in your christian faith, there is a very significant ten tenet, and that's the tenet of forgiveness. i think you should forgive not only journalists who come at you in ways you don't like, but i think you should be the bigger man. don't you think that's the right thing to do? >> it probably is. but you know, it's called and eye for an eye, i guess, also you can look at it that way. >> oh, no, no, no. that's old testament. >> bill -- you are taking it -- >> if you're a christian, the eye for the eye rule goes out. here is what it is. turning the other cheek. >> bill, let me tell you, are taking this much more seriously than i am. >> reporter: trump kept bashing >> reporter: and those trump kept bashing kelly -- >> i have zero respect for megyn kelly. i don't think she's very good at what she does. i think she's highly overrated.
5:33 pm
again. >> i want you to consider, all right? think about it. say, look, i might come back, forgive, go forward, answer the questions, look out for the folks. >> well, even though you and i had an agreement that you wouldn't ask me that, which we i will, therefore, forget that because i told you up front, i question, because it's an embarrassing question to you. and i don't want to embarrass >> but i'm not going to listen >> reporter: but trump won't budge. so, there will be no repeat of very first republican debate. >> you've called women you don't like fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals. your twitter account -- >> only rosie o'donnell. >> no, it wasn't. for the record, it was well beyond rosie o'donnell. >> yes, i'm sure it was. >> reporter: now, trump's opponents, calling him out. >> donald trump is skipping the caucuses. why?
5:34 pm
questions. >> reporter: jeb bush tweeting, "if donald trump can't handle the fox news debate, what else will he not be able to handle?" trump one-on-one. do you think donald trump is afraid to debate you personally? people of iowa. he doesn't want to answer their he doesn't want to defend his record. >> reporter: and marco rubio, hoping to place in the top three in iowa to build momentum, knocking the circus surrounding tonight's showdown. >> oh, donald trump's not going to show up. ted cruz is challenging him to a one-on-one, mano a mano debate. this is not a show. this is serious. >> reporter: and david, tonight, trump's event being billed as a benefit for veterans, and two of his rivals are going to be there. mike huckabee and rick santorum both confirming they will be at the trump event. but they say, they're not going because of trump, they're going >> tom llamas, our thanks to you. let's get right to george stephanopoulos, who is leading our coverage of the iowa
5:35 pm
and george, first off, the trump campaign. they say they're not concerned about not being there, but is there a gamble here in not showing up? >> let's stipulate it. if trump were a normal candidate, this would be a dealbreaker. it would raise questions about temperament, is he afraid of a tough debate? but here's the real risk here. here's the calculation. what does he get in return? control. he controls the news cycle before the debate, controls it during the debate. controls a lot of it after the debate. he eliminates a risk, as well. a question that trips him up. a confrontation with a rival that draws blood. so, you can see a businessman looking at this and saying, that's a good bet. not there, they say they're going to remove the podium, that brings the candidates in and puts ted cruz front and center. fire tonight? >> he's going to get a lot of that could be an opportunity, he's lost a lot of momentum in the last couple of weeks. he needs to be center stage. if he handles those attacks well, and reminds people, those
5:36 pm
him in the first place, it could help him a real lot. this could be the biggest night of the capable for him. >> all right, george, thank you so much. and see you on "good morning america" and a reminder, after tonight, the next republican debate is right here on abc. i hope you'll join martha raddatz and me, saturday night, february 6th, when we moderate the republican debate, after iowa and before the key state of new hampshire, right here. in the meantime, to the democratic side tonight, and just four days to go to iowa, as we've mentioned here, where it is a race to the finish. every night, a new poll, a new leader. tonight, the latest poll has hillary clinton on top, barely edging out bernie sanders in iowa. tonight, she's doubling down. former president bill clinton holding several separate events. trying to fight bernie sanders' last-minute push before the caucuses. abc's jonathan karl, one-on-one with sanders tonight. will he debate hillary before new hampshire? and what clinton is now saying about adding a new debate. >> reporter: two for the price of one. hillary clinton is bringing in bill for the big final push in
5:37 pm
hillary. >> great to see you! >> reporter: and in a reversal, mrs. clinton is now saying she wants more debates, starting next week. >> we have to agree that we're going to debate in new hampshire. both the governor and i have agreed, and we're waiting for the senator to decide to join us. >> reporter: we asked bernie sanders about that. >> i wanted more debates from day one. >> reporter: i know. >> gee, a upleonthago,t wasn thelint peoe wh re ieresd. wond whahas ppen now thathey nt me detes. whato yothinhas ange >> rorte hers wh's ange sands isurgi. ggermorenergic cwds. we stopped by his campaign headquarters today. they were so busy trying to score an upset iowa caucus win, this volunteer had no time for us. how's it going? >> going well. i'm a little bit too busy right now to talk though. i'm sorry. >> reporter: and today, the 74-year-old candidate released a doctor's note declaring he's "in overall good health." good humor, too. how healthy are you? >> i am, i am -- you know, thank
