Detroit, May 24: Hillary Clinton has turned down an invitation to debate Bernie Sanders ahead of California's primary, said her campaign.

The comment came, monets after Clinton criticized Donald J. Trump's business skills. Sander, last week, accepted an invitation of debate by Fox News before the California primary on June 7. While Hillary Clinton was invited too, she turned down the offer.

Spokeswoman of Hillary Clinton's campaign, Jennifer Palmieri, said that Mrs Clinton's team would contest California, but also keep an eye on "turning our attention to the threat a Donald Trump presidency poses."

She further added, "We believe that Hillary Clinton's time is best spent campaigning and meeting directly with voters across California and preparing for a general election campaign that will ensure the White House remains in Democratic hands."

Citing that many Americans believe that Trump is a disaster waiting to happen in America, Clinton said, "He could bankrupt America like he's bankrupted his companies. I mean, ask yourself: How can anybody lose money running a casino? Really."

Taking on him, Clinton further said that his economic policies consisted of piling up debt, leading the country into trade wars and letting Wall Street run amok, with devastating consequences.

Criticizing his approach to curb immigration, Clinton said, "What kind of country would we be if we let Donald Trump rip our families apart?" Calling him "hysterically funny" Clinton said that Trump may even be lying about his net worth. "Trump is a multibillionaire - or so he tells us, We don't know what is true or not because, you know, he lies every day, so probably he's broke."
