Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Thursday claimed that Hillary Clinton’s policies were “so bad” that the election should be canceled with him declared the winner.
“What a difference this is. Just thinking to myself right now, we should just cancel the election and give it to Trump,” the real-estate mogul said while campaigning in Toledo, Ohio. “What are we having? Her policies are so bad.”
Trump had been in the midst of slamming the Democratic nominee’s tax-policy proposals, claiming her plan would raise taxes on small businesses.
Trump’s comments came amid a day of campaigning in the critical battleground state of Ohio, where he leads recent polls by an average of 1.1 points, according to RealClearPolitics. Trump trails Clinton by a 5.8-point average in national surveys.
In recent weeks, Trump has railed against a supposed “rigged” system of media and political elites working to foil his presidential bid.
