Trump/Bernie Debate Update

Donald Trump said Friday that he would not debate Bernie Sanders, stating that he would rather take on the "the first-place finisher in the Democratic Party" — Hillary Clinton. 

"Based on the fact that the Democratic nominating process is totally rigged and Crooked Hillary Clinton and Deborah Wasserman Schultz will not allow Bernie Sanders to win, and now that I am the presumptive Republican nominee, it seems inappropriate that I would debate the second-place finisher," Trump said in a statement. 

"Likewise, the networks want to make a killing on these events and are not proving to be too generous to charitable causes, in this case, women’s health issues," the statement added. 

"Therefore, 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."

Seriously, it would be bad form for the nominee from one party to debate the other party's primary candidate in another. They both spoke before really getting any counsel on the matter. Good to see Manafort is still working diligently to help enlighten Trump, not a professional politician, in these matters.

Watch it will be Trump vs. Biden

12:33 You are probably right. Either way, Trump will prevail and make either one look stupid by just exposing the facts.

Well played, Donald! Besides, you don't need to debate anyone at this point until the real race is on. Your platform is heavens above anyone else's.
