We here at TYT have been trying to host a debate between Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders. While the chances of the debate being hosted by The Young Turks appear low, the chances of it happening somewhere seem to be growing. Ana Kasparian and John Iadarola (ThinkTank), hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
“Hillary Clinton has declined an invitation to debate Senator Bernie Sanders before the California primary election next month, but he may have found a willing replacement: Donald J. Trump.
The idea of a debate between the two men came up on Wednesday when Mr. Trump was appearing on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and Mr. Kimmel said that Mr. Sanders had passed along an invitation to Mr. Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee. Mr. Trump, who opted out of a debate in Iowa in January and decided that he would no longer participate in primary debates after the Republican field narrowed to three candidates, said he would be open to debating Mr. Sanders if the proceeds were donated to charity, although there were conflicting reports about how serious he was.
“If I debated him we would have such high ratings and I think we should take that money and give it to some worthy charity,” Mr. Trump said. “If we paid a nice sum toward a charity, I would love to do that.”
Mr. Sanders, who faces a big delegate deficit against Mrs. Clinton, was quick to sign on.
“Game on,” he wrote in a post on Twitter. “I look forward to debating Donald Trump in California before the June 7 primary.” ”*
