Halloween is the wrong time to vote for Donald Trump, according to the president-elect.
“I can’t think of a better time to make a statement, the worst moment to be supporting Donald Trump,” Trump said in an interview on CNN’s “New Day” on Tuesday, adding that he doesn’t think it would be the worst election year ever.
“It’s not the most important thing in the world.
I think we are in the middle of a horrible situation in this country.
And so I think that Halloween is not the best time to go out and support Donald J. Trump.”
The president-election was delayed until January 20, 2021, and he told the show that he didn’t want to make the mistake of making it public before he takes office on January 20.
“The most important issue is to make sure that we’re focused on jobs, the economy, and getting the economy going again, and we’re not going to get distracted by politics,” Trump told the host.
“And I would never want to do that.
I would just love to have this focus on getting our economy going, but we’re in a horrible position, and I think there’s a lot of people that are very unhappy with the situation.”
Trump said that he was considering making a statement on the campaign trail on Thursday, but that it would have to be “very specific.”
“The whole time that you’re doing that, I think the whole media is kind of trying to go after you, you know, you’re making a very big deal about it,” Trump responded.
“There are no more debates.
I don’t know if I want to talk about it any more, but I’ll just tell you, the media, the Democrats, the entire political class is so out of touch with the country.
I just think it’s the wrong thing to be doing.”
