On Saturday, Edward Snowden sent out a mocking tweet ridiculing Donald Trump for his cowardly refusal to debate Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders despite earlier agreeing to do so.

Snowden remarked that clearly we had all hit a nerve when the public pushed for a productive conversation between the two candidates.


Sanders, too, was feeling a bit bold in response to the snub by Trump when on Friday he openly questioned, “What are you afraid of?”

Whether or not it would have been a good idea for either candidate to participate in the debate, no political event would have drawn as much interest and Trump’s refusal to participate was a disappointment to nearly everyone.
