Trump was asked if he would consider holding a debate with Sanders. Trump agreed to the idea, noting that a Sanders vs. Trump debate 'would have such high ratings.'
Bernie quickly responded with a tweet reading, 'Game On. I look forward to debating Donald Trump in California before the June 7th primary.'
American political commentator, economist, professor, and author Robert Reich shared his opinion on Facebook:
'I don’t know if it will actually happen, but a debate between the two anti-establishment candidates who have captured the imagination of America this year, neither of whom has ever belonged to one of the major parties, and who are staging revolts against politics as usual – on one side, the authoritarian populist Trump, and on the other the progressive populist Bernie – would be good for the nation. It would highlight the anti-establishment fury that’s gripped the nation, and the reasons for it – crony capitalism and an economy rigged by the moneyed interests. And it would put the two parties (and Hillary Clinton) on even clearer notice that they must respond to this fury.'
'If Bernie Sanders paid a sum toward charity I would love to do that,' said Donald Trump.
Bernie's reply was also a shock for Hillary Clinton, because candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination declines to debate Sanders in California.
