Trump BACKS OUT of Debate With Bernie – Here’s Why

Trump suggested there be a debate between him and Bernie Sanders earlier last week. Since this announcement however, things have changed. He has said now that it would be INAPPROPRIATE to hold a debate with Sanders… who is a 2nd place finisher.

From Western Journalism:

“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,” said Trump in a statement.

Trump doubled down on his suggestion the following day, claiming that such a debate could generate millions towards charitable contributions.

In response, the Sanders campaign released a statement claiming they had received offers from at least two television networks expressing a desire to host the event.

“We look forward to a substantive debate that will contrast the very different visions that Sen. Sanders and Mr. Trump have for the future of our country,” read the statement.

Soon after, the Trump campaign released its own statement saying he was unwilling to participate, claiming the networks would “make a killing” with no guarantee they would donate to a charitable cause.

Sanders followed up by mocking Trump and telling reporters, “Well, I hope that he changes his mind again. Mr. Trump has been known to change his mind many times in a day.”

Of course Sanders is going to take a dig at Trump, he needs the publicity and needs it badly. I’d be trying to egg Trump into a debate too.
