    Trump says if he wins - he may not serve as President - Is he joking? Again?

    Presented with a scenario, 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.

    Donald’s candidacy appears to be a series of incoherent braggadocio descending into a spiral of inexplicably strange behavior - unless he truly is the 'controlled opposition' for Hilary

    That scenario might be very interesting. In my own opinion, a president is not so much an individual in control as several in control and having their own agenda. You can be assured that there will be fifty behind any leader and always one to pick up the pieces or smooth over the rough waters. I really believe that there is little difference in which party wins. All the same old stuff.How many times has a winner been out of the blue that hardly no one has heard of. We just have to take it as it comes.

    "Trump's shock declaration came as The New York Times asked him if he was tapped by Americans to serve four years in the White House, might he then "forgo the office as the ultimate walk-off winner."

    If he was really the controlled opposition, it would be after the convention. He drops out, the RNC replaces him and Clinton has to scramble to attack the new opponent. That would be a stellar RNC play.

    Trump, the newspaper said, flashed a mischievous smile, answering, "I'll let you know how I feel about it after it happens."

    He hardly gave an answer that would warrant the question.

      IDK, winning the the RNC is nothing compared to being elected President.

      you can't win the presidency without winning the primary, ask Trump's 19 opponents who failed to win it. Winning the presidency and becoming president hasn't helped the country. 46 million people are on food stamps for the last four years.
