CNN is "milking" Wednesday night's GOP presidential debate, frontrunner Donald Trump tweeted just hours before the event at the Reagan Presidential Library begins.
The debate is scheduled to run from 8 until 11 p.m. That's an hour longer than the first debate on Aug. 6, aired by Fox News channel.

It wasn't Trump's first criticism of CNN. He has previously suggested the news channel donate the extra money
it is making on advertising sales to veterans groups.
CNN's ad rates reportedly skyrocketed from $5,000 for a 30-second spot to $200,000 for the debate. Trump took credit for the added popularity of the debate, citing the record numbers at the first debate.
CNN President Jeff Zucker has declined to comment on Trump's suggestion.
