Maybe I'll have to leave the country if Biden wins

US President Donald Trump joked that he would have to leave the country if he loses the November 3 election to his Democratic rival Joe Biden. Trump's remarks accepting a possible outcome not in his favor came at a campaign in Macon, Georgia, on Friday night. I'm going to say "I lost to the worst candidate in the history of politics". I'm not gonna feel so good.

Ahead of Trump's town hall, NBC received backlash for allowing the president a platform in the same time slot as Biden, whose town hall was announced first after Trump dropped out the debate. The Commission on Presidential Debates made a decision to stage the event virtually after Trump tested positive for COVID-19 on October 1 but rejected the arrangement.

Trump added, "Maybe I'll have to leave the country?"

The Lincoln Project, a Republican group which has been vocal in its opposition to the president, tweeted a single-word question.

While Trump appeared to be joking at the notion, it will be interesting to see what he does, should he lose. "I will never speak to you again", he said.


A clip of that statement was shared by the Biden campaign, with the tweet: "I'm Joe Biden and I approve this message". "I think I'll go to Turnberry and play golf or something".

President Trump on Friday called Joe Biden and son Hunter "a crime family", and the president's supporters in Florida began chanting, "Lock him up!"

The averages of major polls in the state have Biden leading Trump by 7.2 percentage points, according to RealClearPolitics news site.
