President Donald Trump, citing polls showing him tied or leading in key swing states, remains very confident about his reelection efforts.
His comments came during an interview with The Washington Post published Thursday.
“I haven’t really even started to campaign yet,” he said. “Now, campaigning’s a little bit tough because of the coronavirus. This thing, what China did to us, is just unbelievable. We were sailing, it was unstoppable. And then, this happened. And it’s a shame, but now (we’ve) got to go back to work. But I think we’re doing really well.”
Trump noted polls – some internal, some not – show him performing well.
“Pennsylvania tied. Florida, up one. Wisconsin, up one. Texas, up five. Arizona, Trump 49. Biden 45; North Carolina, Trump up three. And then Montana: Trump up a lot — 52-38,” he said.
In the interview, Trump defended his July 3 speech at Mount Rushmore.
He said the speech was “was actually not dark, it was the opposite of dark. What’s dark is the other side. . . . They’re trying to take everything down. And I think they’re crazy, but I also think they’re evil. There’s an evilness to it. And I can’t believe that there’s not more pushback.”
Meanwhile, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported that Trump is due in the state on Friday for a major fundraiser. Th event asks guests to pay $580,600 per-couple. The event is being held at a private home in Hillsboro Beach, north of Fort Lauderdale.
