Donald Trump, the Republican Party’s presidential front-runner, made light of media headlines that ran with the idea he might drop out of the race if his polls ever tanked, telling a “Morning Joe” MSNBC panel: I’m never leaving, he joked.
Trump referred to statements he made to the press about how he’d exit the race if his poll numbers tumbled dramatically, and poked fun at how the headlines read.
“The next-day headlines [read] ‘Trump considering maybe getting out,’” he said, on MSNBC. “It was so ridiculous. So you know what I say right now? I give more of a political answer. I’m never getting out.”
His quip sent the panel into laughter.
But his comments come on the heels of recent polls that show he’s maintained his front-runner status, same as for the past few weeks.
