Donald Trump has declared that he might have to leave the United States if he is defeated by Joe Biden in the upcoming presidential election.
Per the Independent, President Trump made the assertion while addressing his supporters at last night's Make America Great Again campaign rally in Macon, Georgia.
Speaking to the crowd, the 74-year-old stated that Joe Biden was the "worst candidate in the history of presidential elections", and that the prospect of losing to the former vice president is making him consider his future in the US.Watch President Trump slam Biden and say he might "have to leave the country" if he loses:
