Donald Trump Promises No Concession Speech If He Loses
GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump has gone on record in a speech in Maryland that he’s not going to give a gracious concession speech if he loses the nomination. He’s probably not even going to give any speech.
Trump said last Sunday (via BI):
“They fight like hell for six months, and they’re saying horrible things, the worst things you can imagine. 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.'”
He continued: “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.”
Ironically, Donald Trump also lambasted the winners as being “too modest.” He said regarding the losing candidates: “Half the times [the winners] put them in the administration — that’s how they get rid of them.”
His line of thinking of course has not stopped him for accepting endorsements from “losers” for himself like that of Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson. In fact he’s actually been gracious and modest about those.
Donald Trump is going to get the nomination though. Republicans love him so much and he embodies GOP ideology perfectly.
