Last night, on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Donald Trump was asked a question about whether he would consider debating Bernie Sanders. Trump said he’d love to debate him, which Sanders quickly jumped on and accepted the challenge, with the stipulation that it happen in California before the June 7th primary. For his part, Trump also stipulated that Bernie would have to cough up some money for a charity of Trump’s choosing in order for him to actually go through with it.

Report from The Hill:

Donald Trump late Wednesday said that he is ready and willing to debate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) for charity.

“Yes, I am,” he said on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” “How much is he going to pay me? If he paid a nice sum toward a charity, I’d love to do that.

“If I debated him, we would have such high ratings and I think I should take that money and give it to some worthy charity,” the GOP’s presumptive presidential nominee added.
Sanders, a Democratic presidential candidate, later accepted Trump’s offer, even offering a potential battleground site.

Trump also said that a television network could foot the bill for such a debate, adding that the potential ratings would justify their expense.

“That could happen also,” he told Kimmel. “In fact, I’ve been saying that should happen anyways.

“When we did the Republican debates, Fox had 24 million people, the largest in the history of cable television,” Trump added. “CNN three weeks later had 23 million people, the largest in the history of CNN.

“I must say, I think I had a lot to do with that. I said, ‘Why aren’t we getting paid for this?’ I’ve been saying this for a long time. Get paid, give the money to charity, pick good charities and give the money to charity.”

Sanders wasted no time in accepting the invite:

Whether this debate will actually happen remains to be seen. Maybe we’ll get some details in the next few days if Trump’s statement was serious. He had to know that Bernie would accept it, so I have to think Trump may be prepared to deliver. Fox News was already trying to put together a Clinton/Sanders debate in California, perhaps they can revive that process and substitute Trump for Clinton.

Hillary Clinton is either laughing at this prospect or it will have her campaign in a flurry since Sanders will arguably have the largest viewing audience since the campaign began. That is, of course, if this debate actually happens, and there’s no official confirmation yet that it will.

Stay tuned for this one.

    • Yeah you are wrong that would be Clinton and Trump. Bernie Sanders has substance and has actuality have issues and policies of his own. Trump has zero and Clinton just mirrors Sanders to pander to get votes and rig machine’s and lie and cheat but you can’t expect much from someone who protects and stays with her husband who has sex with 13 to 14 year old young girls on the Lolita Express. People who support her must support that behavior which to me is sickening and they should be ashamed of themselves.

  1. Nice it would be a great debate and I bet Sanders would do great. Lee Tomlinson works for Correct the Record so don’t listen to his paid troll garbage.

    • With the blop on stage? Is that a rethorical question? Sanders gonna try, i guess.

  2. Trump seems to be equivocating, and adding conditions. Dumb move.

    By debating Bernie one-on-one, he’ll give Bernie extra credibility, and of course, both of them will spend the entire time trashing Hillary. I don’t understand why Trump wouldn’t want this bonus way to humiliate Hillary–with a YUGE audience–only about a week before the convention.

    • I tried to figure out why Trump would pass up this opportunity for publicity AND a chance to have him AND Bernie trash Hillary. I think I figured it out. There have been protests and some violence at both Trump and Bernie appearances. If there were a big blow up, it would hurt both of them. Maybe that’s why Trump reneged.
