Trump: I'll Debate Bernie for $10-$15 Million That Would Go to Charity
Donald Trump said at a news conference he's already talked to some TV executives about a debate against Bernie Sanders.
Trump said he would demand $10 million to $15 million for charity, possibly to benefit "women's health issues," in order to debate the Vermont senator.
"The biggest problem I have is that Bernie's not gonna win. But I'd debate him anyway if they wanted to put up money for charity. We'll see. We've actually had a couple of calls from the networks," he said.
The headlines started when Trump told Jimmy Kimmel last night that he'd be willing to debate Sanders.
Sanders then tweeted that he would be willing to appear.
Game on. I look forward to debating Donald Trump in California before the June 7 primary.

#BernieTrumpDebate has quickly become the one of the top trends on social media today.
It comes after Hillary Clinton declined to debate Sanders at a Fox News forum ahead of the June 7 California primary.
Trump took questions in North Dakota after the AP declared that he had surpassed the 1,237 delegates needed to clinch the GOP nomination.
