Donald Trump isn’t willing to go graciously into the night with a concession speech if he somehow loses the Republican presidential nomination.
During a rally in Maryland, the Republican presidential frontrunner mocked candidates who suddenly praise the very candidates they fought against for months.
“They fight like hell for six months, and they’re saying horrible things, the worst things you can imagine,” Trump said. “And then one of them loses, one of them wins. And the one who loses says, ‘I just want to congratulate my opponent. He is a brilliant man, he’ll be a great governor or president or whatever.'”
“I’m not sure you’re ever going to see me there. I don’t think I’m going to lose, but if I do, I don’t think you’re ever going to see me again, folks. I think I’ll go to Turnberry and play golf or something,” he added.
Trump also thinks that winners in these hotly debated contests are also too light on their opponents.
“Half the times [the winners] put them in the administration — that’s how they get rid of them,” Trump said of the losing candidates.
At the same time, Trump has graciously accepting endorsements from other candidates who have dropped out of the presidential race, including New Jersey governor Chris Christie.
I have a feeling Donald Trump won’t go quietly into the night regardless of the results. He simply loves the spotlight too much to exit it upon his defeat.
