Donald Trump Agrees to Debate Bernie Sanders ‘For Charity’

1thumbThis could get interesting. On Wednesday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, host Jimmy Kimmel relayed a message from Bernie Sanders to Donald Trump, asking Trump if he would be willing to step in for Hillary Clinton and debate him ahead of the California primaries. Current Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton has backed out of a planned debate with Sanders, and so Bernie is looking to get in the ring with Trump.

Trump told Kimmel that yes, he’d be perfectly happy to debate Sanders if there was some money in it for a worthy charity:

Kimmel: (reading note from Bernie Sanders) Are you prepared to debate the major issues facing our largest state and the country before the California primary? Yes or no.

Trump: Yes, I am. How much is he going to pay me?

Kimmel: You would do it for a price?

Trump: Yeah. If I debated him, we would have such high ratings, and I think I should give, take that money and give it to some worthy charity. Okay?

A word of advice to the charity in question: get cash up front.
