Donald Trump on Saturday threatened to bring a woman that Bill Clinton had an extramarital affair with when he debates Hillary Clinton.
“If dopey Mark Cuban of failed Benefactor fame wants to sit in the front row, perhaps I will put Gennifer Flowers right alongside of him!” Trump initially tweeted.

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.
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.
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.”
