Donald Trump Says He'll Debate Bernie Sanders In California For Charity

The two could face off if a network is willing to make a donation.

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.
