Donald Trump told Jimmy Kimmel on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last night that he would accept a debate with Bernie Sanders before the California Primary June 7th, as long as the proceeds go to charity.

Bernie was quick to accept, given that Hillary Clinton recently reneged on her promise to debate Bernie in California.
Bernie vs Trump Debate time and place has yet to be announced. Unfortunately with Trump, you never know when he will change his mind. There is no guarentee the debate will happen as of yet.
Sanders campaign manager Jeff Weaver told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on CNN today:
“We are ready to debate Donald Trump. We hope he will not chicken out. I think it will be great for America to see these two candidates and the different visions they have for America going forward. What we’ll have to see, Wolf, is does Donald Trump have the courage to get on the stage with Bernie Sanders. That remains to be seen.”
Trump said today in Bismarck, North Dakota:
“I’d love to debate Bernie. He’s a dream. If we can raise for maybe women’s health issues or something. If we can raise $10 or $15 million for charity, which would be a very appropriate amount.”
Trump’s team is reportedly shopping for a network and a ‘yuge’ arena to host the debate which is sure get massive primetime tv ratings.
Trump stated Friday that he will not debate Sanders. Sanders has been giving speeches at rally’s up and down California since, ridiculing Trump for changing his mind about debateing Sanders 4 different times. He continues to ask Trump publicly, “to change his mind one more time, and debate me.”
