Even though his chances at winning the Democratic nomination are very low at the moment, Bernie Sanders seems to be keeping his promise and campaign “until the last vote”.
With this idea in mind, the Vermont Senator plans to confront Republican nominee Donald Trump in a one-on-one debate. He seems to have already talked with the businessman, but it’s still reserved about this actually happening.
So, what’s the while purpose of the debate?
“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,” Bernie Sanders‘ campaign manager Jeff Weaver told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer Thursday, according to CNN Politics.
“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,” he added.
As for Trump, he made it clear that he wants to see this debate happening, especially if the two candidates could use the moment in order to raise money for charity.
Trump is looking forward to the debate!
“I’d love to debate Bernie. He’s a dream,” he said in North Dakota. “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.”
Of course, in his well-known style, Donald Trump claimed that he’s looking for a big arena to hold the debate, planning to have a lot of fun. A little attack to Bernie Sanders‘ address wasn’t forgotten, though.
“The problem with debating Bernie is he’s going to lose. Because honestly his system is rigged. Just like our system is rigged,” Trump said, making references to the Democratic leaders pressuring Sanders to suspend his bid, as well as the GOP members not supporting their official nominee.
