Trump backs out of interview when reporter won’t provide questions in advance
The Jacksonville, FL reporter wasn’t going to give the questions ahead of time.

The topics included Marco Rubio, “diplomacy in the White House,” “Hispanic Florida voters,” and “Refugees.”
From there, Bourne relates, the campaign “kind of just ghosted me.”
At the rally later on Monday, Bourne received conflicting narratives, ranging from a denial that the interview had been scheduled, to hearing that a “decision hadn’t been made.”
Bourne waited … and waited … but it “just never happened,” even as another local Jacksonville TV outlet was approached for its interview.
