Activist, lawyer, and author of Gorilla Mindset Mike Cernovich has offered Ted Cruz a donation of $100,000 to a charity of his choice for a debate over the Republican presidential nomination.
Since making the proposal, Cernovich has confirmed that “matching donations are coming in,” appealing to Cruz over the fact that “we can raise a ton of money.”
Hi @SenTedCruz you said you want to debate a Trump supporter. I accept the challenge. I also offer $100,000 for charity to make this happen.

“Name the charity and where you want to debate,” Cernovich added.
Cruz clashed with voters in Indiana this week as Trump supporters held up signs saying “Lyin’ Ted.”
“I personally ask you to reconsider your position to keep running. You’ve been mathematically eliminated, you’re not gonna be able to seal the nomination,” one man told Cruz.
“Trump is a New York liberal who will take away your Second Amendment rights. This man is lying to you. And he’s taking advantage of you,” Cruz responded.
“If I were Donald Trump, I wouldn’t have come over and talked to you. I wouldn’t have shown you that respect,” Cruz claimed. “In fact, you know what I would’ve done, I would’ve told the folks over there, go over and punch those guys in the face. That’s what Donald does to protesters.”
Cruz has yet to respond to the request.
