I might leave US if I lose to Joe Biden: Trump
Published: 20:51 17 October 2020
President Donald Trump suggested he'd leave the country if Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden wins in the upcoming presidential election.
He made the remarks during his latest Make America Great Again campaign rally in Macon, Georgia.
Trump again scoffed at the issue of wearing a mask and adhering to the social distance at Democratic candidate Joe Biden's meeting. Meanwhile, many of his outspoken supporters present at the campaign rally did not have masks. There was no attempt to comply with the social gap in the assembly.
Trump repeatedly mocked Biden's candidacy and suggested that it would be embarrassing to lose to the former vice president.
The president told the crowd that Mr. Biden was the “worst candidate in the history of presidential elections”
“Can you imagine if I lose, my whole life, what am I going to do? I am going to say I lost to the worst candidate in the history of politics?” Mr Trump said.
“I am not going to feel so good, maybe I will have to leave the country, I don’t know,” Mr Trump added, while drawing laughs from the crowd.
Earlier Mr Trump had laughed as he called for Mr Biden and his family to be jailed.
“That is a corrupt family. ‘Lock them up.’ You should lock them up, lock up the Bidens, lock up Hillary, lock them up,” said Mr Trump as his supporters cheered him on
In the 2016 election, Donald Trump received more than five percent of the vote in the state of Georgia. Two weeks before the election, Joe Biden is leading the state with an average of two percent of the vote. Republican supporters also feel that Trump's declining popularity in a Republican-identified state like Georgia is not a good sign.
