Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders might be getting ready to rumble.
Speaking Wednesday night on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” the presumptive Republican presidential nominee accepted a challenge from the Democratic presidential hopeful to debate in California prior to the state’s June 7 primary.
Host Jimmy Kimmel said he asked Sanders, who will be on the show on Thursday, if he had a question for Trump. Sanders, he said, challenged Trump to a debate since Hillary Clinton has declined.
Trump said he would… for a price:
Kimmel: What would that price be?
Trump: 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.
Kimmel: So if it was done for charity you would agree to do that?
Trump: If we paid a nice sum for the charity, I would love to do so.
Kimmel: What if the network put up the money?
Trump: That could happen also. That should happen anyway.
Shortly afterward, Sanders took to Twitter to agree to Trump’s terms:
It’s not clear when or where the debate would take place, or which charities would benefit.
Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar,rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
