Trump: Either I Win the Presidency, or ‘I Go Back to a Very Good Way of Life’
As he talked today about the possibility that he might not be president, Donald Trump‘s thoughts on that scenario pretty much amounted to: meh, whatever.
After doubling down on his statement that President Obama and Hillary Clinton created ISIS, Trump told CNBC’s Squawk Box that he’s not concerned about the recent polls showing Clinton with the upper-hand.
“I just keep doing the same thing I’m doing right now,” Trump said. “And if at the end of 90 days, I’ve fallen short … it’s OK. I go back to a very good way of life.”

The interesting thing about Trump’s comments is that they not only come while he’s falling behind and observing a GOP revolt, but also because of recent indications that Trump doesn’t truly want the duties of the presidency. Trump has repeatedly said that his campaign will be nothing but a “waste of time” if it fails in November, and some of his supporters have noted that his bombastic behavior is sabotaging his own campaign.
“At the end, it’s either going to work or I’m going to have a very, very nice long vacation,” Trump also said to CNBC. “I think we’re going to have victory, but we’ll see.”
Again, this isn’t the only time Trump showed a nonchalant attitude about possibly losing the presidency after his scorched-earth campaign.
