Just hours after seemingly accepting Sen. Bernie Sanders’ challenge for a debate, Donald Trump has already backed out, CBS News reports. On Thursday morning, Trump reportedly said he was just kidding when he agreed on Wednesday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live to face off against Sanders. Trump initially seemed keen on the idea because “it would have such high ratings,” and he figured Sanders “would be easier to beat” than Hillary Clinton. Sanders had already agreed to the debate, tweeting he “look[s] forward to debating Donald Trump in California before the June 7 primary.” Becca Stanek
