Trump threatens to put Jennifer Flowers next to Mark Cuban during first debate.
Donald Trump on Saturday threatened to bring a woman that Bill Clinton had an extramarital affair with when he debates Hillary Clinton Monday.
“If dopey Mark Cuban of failed Benefactor fame wants to sit in the front row, perhaps I will put Jennifer Flowers [sic] right alongside of him!” Trump initially tweeted.
Shortly after, Trump deleted the tweet and reposted it with the correct spelling of Flowers's first name.
Bill Clinton testified under oath in 1998 that he had a sexual affair with Flowers.
Trump was responding to billionaire Mark Cuban, a Hillary Clinton supporter who frequently slams Trump. Cuban on Thursday said he accepted an invitation from Clinton to sit in the front row at Monday’s presidential debate.
Flowers appeared to accept Trump's invitation in a tweet Saturday afternoon.
"Hi Donald. You know I'm in your corner and will definitely be at the debate!" she wrote.
In a statement to BuzzFeed, Hillary Clinton spokeswoman Jennifer Palmieri said the stunt shows the difference between the two candidates.
“Hillary Clinton plans on using the debate to discuss the issues that make a difference in people’s lives. It’s not surprising that Donald Trump has chosen a different path," she said.
Trump's public reference to Bill Clinton's extramarital affairs will likely roil the presidential race just two days before the first debate.
Onlookers have speculated about whether the unpredictable GOP presidential nominee would bring up Flowers and other names, such as Monica Lewinsky and Juanita Broaddrick, to Hillary Clinton's face in the debates.
In a statement to the Huffington Post, Broaddrick, who accused Bill Clinton of rape, said she hasn't received a debate invite from Trump.
“It’s a little late to make travel arrangements but it would be delightful to attend such an epic event. Maybe I will get an invitation to the next one,” she said.
Trump said earlier this week that he did not plan to bring up the Clintons’ marriage at the debate.
“I don’t think I’m looking to do that Bill. I don’t know what I’m going to do that exactly,” Trump said during an interview on “The O’Reilly Factor.” “It depends on what level she hits you with, if she’s fair, if it’s unfair, but certainly I’m not looking to do that.”
