Washington, May 26 (IANS) The Republican Party’s presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump and Democrat hopeful Bernie Sanders have “seemingly” agreed to hold a much-awaited debate.
Appearing on ABC show “Jimmy Kimmel Live” that aired on Wednesday night, Trump said he would be willing to debate Sanders if proceeds from such an event went to charity.
Within minutes of Trump’s statement, Sanders agreed to the idea, Politico reported.
“Game on. I look forward to debating Donald Trump in California before the June 7 primary,” Sanders tweeted early Thursday morning.
So far, the campaigns have made no formal announcements about reaching any specific agreement for an event.
Sanders is scheduled to appear on Kimmel’s late-night talk show on Thursday night.
