WATCH: Trump: ‘This election is going to be a total disaster’
President Donald Trump said Sunday that the election will be a “total disaster” because the results will be so “disappointing” and “disheartening.”
“This election, this election is a total, total disaster,” Trump said on ABC’s “This Week.”
“It is a rigged system.”
“We have no idea what the results are going to look like,” Trump continued.
“The fact that the media is not reporting, it is very sad.
I am sure it will be worse than a lot of things that have happened in this country.
I don’t want to see it.
I mean, I’m not sure it’s going to get any worse than it is.”
Trump also said that the people who voted for him in the Nov. 8 election “shouldn’t have to worry about it” because “they’re not stupid.”
“They are stupid,” Trump added.
“They shouldn’t have a problem with it.”
In his first news conference since Election Day, Trump said that he is “very disappointed” in the results and that he believes the election results are “disqualifying.”
“The election is not going to go to anybody who doesn’t vote for me,” Trump told reporters Sunday.
“It’s not going a great thing for the country.”
Trump told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that he expects the election to be “disappointed” because of the “disproportionate” turnout in the country and said he believes that it will turn out in the “very, very close” presidential election in November.
“I think it’s just a total catastrophe,” Trump insisted.
“I am not going down that road.”
He said that people “should be worried about it.”
“I mean, we have a lot to worry [about], George,” Trump replied.
“And I think the people are going — they’re going to have a hard time voting, but we’re going in the right direction.”
