Donald Trump, Republican presidential candidate, has suggested the US Presidential election should be cancelled and called in his favour as polls continue to predict victory for Hillary Clinton.
“Just thinking to myself right now, we should just cancel the election and just give it to Trump,” CNN quoted Trump as saying during a rally in Ohio on Thursday. “Her policies are so bad. Boy, do we have a big difference,” he said about his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.
Donald Trump, who is still trailing his opponent Hillary Clinton two weeks from Election Day, said he’d like to “cancel the election” and be declared the winner, media reports said.
Speaking just 11 days before the vote, the Republican candidate attacked his rival’s policies at a rally in Ohio on Thursday.
Criticising Mrs Clinton’s proposals on business taxes, he told supporters in Toledo: “In just thinking to myself right now, we should just cancel the election and just give it to Trump, right?
“Why are we even having it for? What are we having it for? Her policies are so bad. Boy, do we have a big difference.” Mr Trump’s tongue-in-cheek comments came after he made repeated suggestions the election is rigged against him.
The problem, which appears to be linked to old voting machines, has been reported during early voting and causes the wrong candidate to be selected by touchscreens.
Interestingly, earlier on Thursday, he posted a tweet on concerns about “vote flipping” in Texas, asking: “What is going on?”
