Donald Trump has stepped up to the challenge that Hillary Clinton rejected: debating Bernie Sanders before the nation's final primaries. On Jimmy Kimmel Live Wednesday, the host asked Trump whether he would debate Sanders, and Trump agreed to do so if the proceeds went to charity, CBS News reports. "Game on," Sanders tweeted within minutes. "I look forward to debating Donald Trump in California before the June 7 primary." There have been no announcements from either campaign about specifics, Politico reports, but Sanders may be able to provide more details when he appears on Kimmel Thursday night.
