If it were anyone else we could safely assume they were joking, but when you're dealing with Donald Trump there's no way to be sure.
Trump was asked if he would actually serve as president if elected and his immediate response was not 'yes.'
Presented in a recent interview with a scenario, floating around the political ether, in which the presumptive Republican nominee proves all the naysayers wrong, beats Hillary Clinton and wins the presidency, only to forgo the office as the ultimate walk-off winner, Mr. Trump flashed a mischievous smile.
“I’ll let you know how I feel about it after it happens,” he said, minutes before leaving his Trump Tower office to fly to a campaign rally in New Hampshire.
The idea of Trump abruptly quitting is equal parts insane and plausible, much like the rest of his existence.
We already know Trump has plans in the works to develop his own Trump-brand alternative to Fox News that he would sell to his voters in the likely event that he loses. We can't rule out the possibility of that being his ultimate goal even if he somehow wins.
I don't think we need to worry about him quitting after he wins because he won't get that close, but the Trump News Channel could be very real.
