New York, NY (AP) - Real estate mogul Donald Trump will moderate a
Republican presidential debate in Iowa a week before the state
holds the first in the nation caucuses.

The conservative website Newsmax will host the debate, scheduled
for December 27 in Des Moines. All the GOP contenders have been
invited to participate.

Trump announced he would not seek the Republican nomination
himself after toying with a bid last spring. The host of "Celebrity Apprentice" has remained visible in the GOP contest, hosting many of the candidates for meetings at Trump Tower in New York City. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is set to visit Trump Monday.

Trump has also been a strong critic of President Barack Obama
and drew considerable publicity when he questioned the validity of
Obama's birth certificate.

    Bad idea. A possible candidate serving as moderator. Donald Trump? I don't think so.

    Should be a real 3-ring circus - better entertainment, I'm sure, than anything else on TV.
