Trump Won’t Debate Sanders Because It’s ‘Inappropriate’ to Debate Losers

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has officially backed out of his tenuous participation in a debate with presumptive Democratic second-place finisher Bernie Sanders. After initially agreeing to debate Sanders for charity earlier in the week, then insisting he was kidding, then insisting he wasn’t kidding, Trump released a statement on Friday indicating that he would not be charitable to Sanders:

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. 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. 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.
