Trump: If I Lose, ‘I Don’t Think You’re Ever Going To See Me Again’

April 25, 2016 9:02 a.m.

Don’t expect Donald Trump to hang around if he loses the Republican presidential nomination.

The frontrunner mocked politicians who meekly concede to their opponent at a Sunday rally in Maryland.

“They fight like hell for six months, and they’re saying horrible things, the worst things you can imagine,” Trump said. “And then one of them loses, one of them wins. And the one who loses says, ‘I just want to congratulate my opponent. He is a brilliant man, he’ll be a great governor or President or whatever.'”

“I’m not sure you’re ever going to see me there,” he continued. “I don’t think I’m going to lose, but if I do, I don’t think you’re ever going to see me again, folks. I think I’ll go to Turnberry and play golf or something.”

The billionaire also said the winning candidate will sometimes “get rid” of their rivals by adding them to their administration.
