Donald Trump has promised to disappear if he loses November’s election to Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden.

Trump said in a North Carolina appearance on Saturday night:

If I lose to him, I don’t know what I’m going to do – I will never speak to you again. You’ll never see me again.

Trump’s promise came amid his standard complaints and insults, following the smear that Biden was “the dumbest” member of the Senate. He lashed out that Biden “uses a teleprompter” and bragged, “You now have a President who doesn’t have to use a teleprompter, isn’t that nice?” — as he stood in front of two teleprompters.

He also lied that, under a Biden Administration, “There’ll be no oil, there’ll be no God, there’ll be no guns.”

Trump said little of substance about the Coronavirus pandemic, repeating his standard disinformation and self-congratulation — but bizarrely giving himself and his Administration a low mark for their management of the crisis.

As Trump spoke, the US death toll rose to 199,259. Confirmed cases are now 6,764,970.

Biden suspended campaigning on Saturday as a mark of respect for Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died on Friday from pancreatic cancer at the age of 87.
