It’s on! Trump will debate Bernie Sanders in California before the June 7th primary. Hillary Clinton refuses the challenge.
On ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Trump was asked if he would consider holding a debate with Sanders. Trump agreed to the idea.
“If he paid a sum toward charity I would love to do that,” said the business mogul, noting that a Sanders vs. Trump debate “would have such high ratings.”
Sanders quickly responded with a tweet reading, “Game On. I look forward to debating Donald Trump in California before the June 7th primary.”
Game on. I look forward to debating Donald Trump in California before the June 7 primary.

Jake Novak assesses the situation just right:
It’s also not wise for Clinton to allow any major campaign event to occur without her participation. With many right wing and progressive voters still hoping she may be disqualified from the race if she is indicted over her State Department email scandal, this kind of “Clinton-less” event gives them a taste of what they’ve been praying for all year.
