Trump made the comments during a Friday night rally in Macon, Georgia where he suggested a loss to the former vice president would be so embarrassing he may consider packing his bags.
"You know what? Running against the worst candidate in the history of American politics puts pressure on me," Trump told the crowd. "Could you imagine if I lose? My whole life — what am I going to do? I’m going to say, I lost to the worst candidate in the history of politics! I’m not going to feel so good. Maybe I’ll have to leave the country, I don’t know."
