Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, said in a statement Friday he no longer plans to debate Sanders, a Democratic candidate. The pair suggested this week they would debate to benefit charity.
The bombastic businessman explained he finds it "inappropriate" to spar with Sanders, the U.S. senator from Vermont, because he will likely not win the Democratic nomination. Trump also contended television networks "want to make a killing" and "are not proving to be too generous to charitable causes."
The Sanders camp earlier in the day said the campaigns received debate offers from broadcast television networks that "include a major contribution to charity." It added it was "prepared to accept one of those offers" and work with the Trump campaign to set a date and time.
In a separate statement after Trump declined to participate, Sanders said he hoped Trump would change his mind.
"Given that there are several television networks prepared to carry this debate and donate funds to charity, I hope that he changes his mind once again and comes on board," Sanders said.
Trump this week clinched the number of delegates needed to win the GOP nomination at the party's convention in July.
Sanders trails former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the Democratic delegate count ahead of next month's California primary. He has pledged to stay in the race until July's Democratic Party convention to continue pushing his platform.
