Jeff Weaver on Debate: We Hope Trump Doesn’t Chicken Out

Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump stoked speculation that the two candidates might face-off in an unprecedented debate, though it remained unclear how serious both campaigns were about following through.

Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee, said his aides are talking with staff members from the Sanders campaign, which the Vermont senator's advisers confirmed. But Trump also added conditions on his participation: the television network broadcasting a face-off would have to donate $10 million to a charity, perhaps one dealing with women's health issues.
