President Donald Trump said Friday that the U.S. is “not a country” with a “whole lot of” time to consider the outcome of its election.
“I think it’s really important that we do, I think it is important that people do think about what they’re going to do,” Trump said.
“But it’s not a country that you can just throw in the towel and say, ‘OK, I’ve done it.’
Trump was speaking at a news conference in the White House Rose Garden. “
You have to do what you think is right, and then you have to have a process that’s very long-term.”
Trump was speaking at a news conference in the White House Rose Garden.
He has promised to nominate a Supreme Court justice to replace Justice Antonin Scalia who died in February at the age of 79.
Trump’s comments followed comments by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., in which he said that the election was “a foregone conclusion” for Trump and that the president “can’t be trusted.”
In the past, Trump has said that “we’re in this race all the way to the election.”
In his interview with ABC News, Trump said that he believes the election is “over” but that “nobody really knows” what the outcome will be.
“We’re not going to know what the results are until I give the speech,” he said.
He said he “just don’t know what’s going to happen.”
“It’ll be over, but we don’t really know,” he added.
“What do you know?
Nobody really knows.
So, it’s a foregone outcome.
So it’s just, I don’t think we’re going in.”
Trump also said that there are “some” people who would be voting for him in 2020 but he doesn’t believe they will be, because of his “very good instincts” and because he has “a very good heart.”
