On Friday’s “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump vowed to stayed the course in the presidential campaign.
Trump explained that in a previous media appearance if things weren’t going his way, he would consider dropping out of the race. Trump declared the media’s reaction to those remarks “ridiculous” and then made his proclamation about the contest.
“You know the amazing thing — I was with Chuck Todd, who was very good, and I did ‘Meet the Press’ and he said, ‘Well, would you get out?’ and I made this statement, ‘Well, you know, if I could see I wasn’t going to win, and if my numbers were really terrible, and if you wouldn’t call and everybody’s not calling, if I saw it wasn’t going to happen, of course I would.'”
“The next day headlines: ‘Trump considering maybe getting out’ — it was so ridiculous,” he said. “So you know what I say right now? I give more of a political answer: I’m never getting out.”
