The Fox News town hall on Monday night with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Hillary Clinton began as an attempt to set up a one-on-one debate between Sanders and Donald Trump, the New York Times reported on Tuesday morning.

Sanders agreed to the debate and the Trump campaign was interested in pursuing the debate at first, according to the Times. But Trump ultimately pulled out of the debate, citing scheduling conflicts, according to the Times.

Fox News then set up a town hall with Sanders before Hillary Clinton agreed to participate in the event with Fox’s Bret Baier, the New York Times reported.
