Trump on a Biden Win: 'Maybe I'll Have to Leave the Country'

Donald Trump and Joe Biden held dueling televised town hall meetings

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden edged out President Donald Trump in viewership of their dueling town hall meetings held simultaneously Thursday on different networks, ratings show.

During his rally in Macon, Georgia on Friday, Trump made fun of the Covid precautions at Biden events, saying it would be "impossible to catch anything at one of those circles because you are so far away", to laughter from his supporters. Running against the worst candidate in the history of presidential politics puts pressure on me. "I'm going to say 'I lost to the worst candidate in the history of politics.' I'm not going to feel so good".

Ahead of Trump's town hall, NBC received backlash for allowing the president a platform in the same time slot as Biden, whose town hall was announced first after Trump dropped out the debate. "I don't know." the President added. "Maybe I'll have to leave the country, I don't know".

The anti-Trump Republican group The Lincoln Project posted the video of Trump and captioned it "Promise?" "If I lose to him, I don't know what I'm going to do. I will never speak to you again".

According to Nielsen ratings, Biden's town hall on ABC averaged 14.1 million television viewers, compared with about 13.5 million who tuned in to watch Trump's town hall on NBC.
