TIME Donald Trump

Watch Every Time Trump Was Mentioned at the Debate

The elephant was not in the room

Donald Trump may not have been physically present at Thursday night’s Republican debate on Fox News, but his name was repeatedly invoked throughout the event.

Even from the debate’s first moments, moderator Megyn Kelly asked Texas Sen. Ted Cruz about the “elephant not in the room,” prompting the second-place candidate to jokily insult the candidates around him in the style of the absent frontrunner.

But Trump’s name — which he once said was worth $3.3 billion — came up at least a dozen more times during the Des Moines debate. Watch the video above to see every mention.
