Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Thursday said Hillary Clinton's policies were "so bad" that the election should be canceled with him declared the winner.
"What a difference this is. Just thinking to myself right now, we should just cancel the election and give it to Trump," the real-estate mogul said while campaigning in Toledo, Ohio. "What are we having? Her policies are so bad."
Trump had been slamming the Democratic nominee's tax-policy proposals, claiming her plan would raise taxes on small businesses.
Trump's comments came amid a day of campaigning in the critical battleground state of Ohio, where he leads recent polls by an average of 1.1 percentage points, according to RealClearPolitics. Trump trails Clinton by a 5.8-point average in national surveys.
Trump in recent weeks has railed against what he has described as a "rigged" system of media and political elites working to foil his presidential bid.
He was set to wrap up his swing through the Buckeye State later Wednesday night with a rally in Geneva. Clinton appeared earlier Thursday in North Carolina in a joint rally with first lady Michelle Obama.
