Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump threatened Saturday to bring Gennifer Flowers, who once had an affair with former president Bill Clinton, to a debate with Hillary Clinton.
Trump made the threat after fellow businessman Mark Cuban, a vocal Trump opponent and Clinton supporter, said he would be in the front row for the debate.
"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 wrote on Twitter.

Flowers revealed an affair with Bill Clinton during his 1992 presidential campaign. He initially denied the relationship, but later admitted the sexual relationship under oath.
Flowers responded on her own Twitter account: "Hi Donald. You know I'm in your corner and will definitely be at the debate!"

Clinton and Trump are to face off in the first of three televised presidential debates on Monday evening.
The Clinton campaign responded to the reports, saying in a statement: "Hillary Clinton plans on using the debate to discuss the issues that make a difference in people's lives. It's not surprising that Donald Trump has chosen a different path," Business Insider reported.
