    "I am delighted that @realDonaldTrump has agreed to debate. Let’s do it in the biggest stadium possible." ---@BernieSanders

    (CNN)Bernie Sanders' campaign manager said Thursday he hopes Donald Trump does not "chicken out" after the two talked about the possibility of a one-on-one debate, but the presumptive GOP front-runner said he'd "love to debate Bernie."

    "We are ready to debate Donald Trump. We hope he will not chicken out. I think it will be great for America to see these two candidates and the different visions they have for America going forward," Sanders campaign manager Jeff Weaver told CNN's Wolf Blitzer Thursday. "What we'll have to see, Wolf, is does Donald Trump have the courage to get on the stage with Bernie Sanders. That remains to be seen."
    Trump made it clear Thursday that he wants to follow through with the debate.
    "I'd love to debate Bernie. He's a dream," he said in Bismarck, North Dakota. "If we can raise for maybe women's health issues or something. If we can raise $10 or $15 million for charity, which would be a very appropriate amount."

    "I understand the television business very well. I think it would get high ratings," Trump added.

    The Republican nominee said his team has been in conversations with several networks about hosting the debate.
    "It should be in a big arena somewhere. And we can have a lot of fun with it. I'd love to debate Bernie" he said. "The problem with debating Bernie is he's going to lose. Because honestly his system is rigged. Just like our system is rigged."

    Trump had previously said he'd "love to." Appearing on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Wednesday night, Trump said he would be willing to spar with Sanders in lieu of likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, joking, "How much is he going to pay me?"

    Debates aside, it's just over 5 months to go and this stupid election will be over. I've already had too many debates, trash talking, name calling and character assassination.

    This item gives some arguments on the merits of Sanders dealing with Trump and calling his bluff.

    Enjoying the Sanders campaign. Fail to see how anyone would want warmonger Clinton as candidate.

    I think it is a brilliant ploy by Trump.

    Essentially he is debating a candidate whom Hillary will beat, and at the same time, get to ignore Hillary altogether and pretend she is a nonfactor.

    Then again, if it were not for Bernie and the e-mail scandal, Hillary would get no air time whatsoever, so in a way, Sanders has benefited Hillary by being in the race. Otherwise, the news would only follow around Donald, thus giving him free publicity 24/7 and completely ignoring the bore Hillary
