Trump: Either I’ll win or I’ll take a ‘nice, long, vacation’

Donald Trump on Thursday joked that he’ll be taking a “nice long vacation” if his poll numbers don’t go up by November.

{mosads}”I just keep doing the same thing I’m doing right now,” the GOP presidential nominee said when asked on CNBC how he would close the gap in battleground states where he is trailing Democrat Hillary Clinton.

“And at the end, it’s either going to work or I’m going to have a very, very nice long vacation.”

Support for Trump has been dropping in polls following last month’s Democratic National Convention, and he trails Clinton both nationally and in several battleground states.

Trump has created several controversies in recent weeks. He faced bipartisan criticism for his attacks on the family of Humayun Khan, an Army captain killed in Iraq in 2004.

Trump last week declined to endorse Speaker Paul Ryan (Wis.) and other top Republican lawmakers before eventually backing them days later.

And earlier this week, he drew criticism after suggesting that gun rights supporters could take action against Clinton, a remark many took as advocating violence.
