U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump smiles during a veteran's rally in Des MoinesBy John Whitesides, Ginger Gibson and Steve Holland DES MOINES, Iowa (Reuters) – Even in boycotting a debate with his Republican rivals, front-runner Donald Trump managed to upstage the event on Thursday with a typical dramatic flourish.
