Watch Live: Donald Trump Holds Veterans Rally as Republicans Debate

Donald Trump is counter-programming the Republican debate

The Republican presidential candidates are holding a debate in Iowa on Thursday night—but the front-runner isn’t there.

Instead, Donald Trump, amid increasingly bitter feud with debate host Fox News and moderator Megyn Kelly, will host a different event in Iowa meant to raise money for wounded veterans. Low-polling Republican candidates Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum have said they will join Trump at the event in Des Moines, after the participate in the so-called undercard debate.

Trump’s event is scheduled to start at 9 p.m. E.T.—the same time as the debate. You can watch it live above.
