Meanwhile, in more news from the campaign trail, Bernie Sanders is criticizing Donald Trump for backing out of a proposed debate between the two candidates ahead of the California primary. Donald Trump first agreed to the idea when it was proposed by Jimmy Kimmel during an interview last week. Sanders quickly signed on to the idea. But Trump then backed out of the idea on Friday, saying in a statement, “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,” Trump said. In response, Sanders asked what Trump was afraid of.
Sen. Bernie Sanders: “Well, it’s the first that I heard about it. I heard that he was going to debate me, then I heard that he was not going to debate me, then I heard that he was going to debate me, and now you’re telling me that he is not going to debate me. Well, you know, I hope that he changes his mind again. I mean, Mr. Trump is known to change his mind many times in a day. And I would—you know, Trump goes around, he’s a bully. He’s a big, tough guy. Well, Mr. Trump, what are you afraid of?”
