Donald Trump Jokes He Will 'Leave The Country' If He Loses The Election
Donald Trump has joked he might have to 'leave the country' if he loses the presidential election.
The US president was speaking at a rally in Georgia yesterday (16 October) as he looks to pull out as much support as possible to give him the edge over Democrat candidate Joe Biden, who is reportedly 11 points ahead in the polls.
Addressing the crowd, Trump said it was inconceivable he could lose to Biden, saying it would be an embarrassment.
He said: "Running against the worst candidate in the history of American politics puts pressure on me.
"Could you imagine if I lose? My whole life, what am I going to do?
"I'm going to say, I lost to the worst candidate in the history of politics. I'm not going to feel so good. Maybe I'll have to leave the country, I don't know."
This comes after the 74-year-old threw his face mask into a crowd of voters at a rally in Florida.
At his first rally since announcing he and wife Melania had tested positive for coronavirus on 2 October, the President tossed masks into the crowd at Orlando Sanford International Airport and discussed how 'powerful' he felt.
He said: "If you don't feel good about going out, stay, relax, stay. You know the risk groups, you know the older people - see, fortunately I'm not an old person. I'm very young and I'm in such perfect shape. I'm in such great shape.
"One thing with me, the nice part - I went through it now. Now they say I'm immune. I feel so powerful.

But this is just the latest piece of controversy to follow Trump in recent weeks.
During a Town Hall to talk about his plan for America if he's reelected next month, NBC News' Savannah Guthrie asked the Commander in Chief about whether he would denounce the QAnon conspiracy theory that has swept over America.
QAnon is a far-right conspiracy theory that states (and we s*** you not) a 'cabal of Satan-worshiping paedophiles running a global child sex-trafficking ring is plotting against President Donald Trump'.
It was started on an internet message board by a 'whistleblower' claiming to have top government clearance and alleges that Trump is battling against this cabal and is planning a day of reckoning called 'The Storm' where the cabal will be arrested.
President Trump was asked to denounce the theory and the group, however he didn't really follow through.
He responded with: "I know nothing about QAnon."
Ms Guthrie hit back with: "I just told you."
Trump replied: "What you tell me doesn't necessarily make it fact."
The two went back and forth over the issue and Trump said the only thing that was clear about QAnon was that they 'are very much against paedophelia', which is a fight he supports.
