Trump says he WILL NOT debate Bernie: " it seems inappropriate that I would debate the second place finisher" pic.twitter.com/EhUgIx2Nt5— Zeke Miller (@ZekeJMiller) May 27, 2016
In a statement that was remarkably insult-dense even for the presumptive Republican nominee, Trump managed to insult Sanders (debating him would be "an easy payday"), Hillary Clinton ("crooked"), Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz ("the Democratic nomination process is totally rigged"), and the TV networks ("would make a killing on this event").
Sanders, on the other hand, seemed more than up for the debate, even urging his supporters to sign up if they wanted to watch:
I am delighted that @realDonaldTrump has agreed to debate. Let’s do it in the biggest stadium possible.— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) May 26, 2016
Unfortunately for Sanders and his supporters, Trump now says he'll wait to debate the Democratic nominee.
