Shortly before Trump’s statement was issued a statement from the Sanders campaign said, “Our campaign and the Trump campaign have received two offers by broadcast television networks to host the Sanders-Trump debate that we suggested. Both offers include a major contribution to charity.” In addition, a technology company offered $10 million to host the debate.
Trump’s statement said, “Based on the fact that the Democratic nominating process is totally rigged and Crooked Hillary Clinton and Deborah Wasserman Schultz will not allow Bernie Sanders to win, and now that I am the presumptive Republican nominee, it seems inappropriate that I would debate the second place finisher.”
Trump continued, “Likewise, the networks want to make a killing on these events and are not proving to be too generous to charitable causes, in this case, women’s health issues. Therefore, as much as I want to debate Bernie Sanders – and it would be an easy payday – I will wait to debate the first place finisher in the Democratic Party, probably Crooked Hillary Clinton, or whoever it may be.”
After that Sanders told reporters, “Well, I hope that he changes his mind again. Mr. Trump has been known to change his mind many times in a day.” Sanders called Trump a “bully,” adding, “Well, Mr. Trump, what are you afraid of?”
