Republican presidential nominee Donald Trumpâ€™s suggestion that he may invite former President Bill Clintonâ€™s ex-mistress to the debate on Sept. 26 just might happen.
After businessman Mark Cuban, a strong opponent of Trump, announced on Twitter on Sept. 22 that he was attending the debate, the GOP nominee took to Twitter with a tentative guest suggestion of his own.
â€śIf dopey Mark Cuban of failed Benefactor fame wants to sit in the front row, perhaps I will put Gennifer Flowers right alongside of him!â€ť Trump tweeted on Sept. 24.
Flowers, a former model, had an extramarital affair with Bill in the 1980s, BuzzFeed reports.
Through her assistant, Flowers told the news site that she would accept an invitation from Trump.
â€śMs. Flowers has agreed to join Donald at the debate,â€ť Judy Stell, Flowersâ€™ personal assistant, said in an email.
Flowers confirmed the news to Trump publicly on Facebook.
â€śHi Donald Trump," she wrote. "Iâ€™m in your corner. Of course I will see [you] at the debate!"
Hillaryâ€™s communications director gave the following comment when told that Flowers may be in attendance: â€śHillary Clinton plans on using the debate to discuss the issues that make a difference in peopleâ€™s lives. Itâ€™s not surprising that Donald Trump has chosen a different path.â€ť
Before Cuban endorsed Clinton and began his public attacks on Trump, he admits to being hopeful the GOP nominee would be different.
"Donald, initially, I really hoped he would be something different, that as a businessperson, I thought there was an opportunity there," Cuban told CNN in July. "But then he went off the reservation and went bats--- crazy."
He also said Trump scares him.
A Clinton aide confirmed the campaign invited Cuban because of his anti-Trump rhetoric.
"He has proven to be singularly effective in making the case against Trump and for Clinton," the aide said. "That is why we invited him."
â€śHe has the best seat we have access to,â€ť the aide said.
