The billionaire eccentric and Republican presidential front-runner answered a question from host Chuck Todd on whether he was flirting with a third-party bid again.
“Well, it's not a third-party bid,” Trump said. “Some people think. I can't say that yet. Because I don't see it.”
What Trump doesn’t see, according to himself, is not winning the Republican presidential nomination. He stated that he’s leading in the polls nationally and in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, and so he doesn’t need to think about a third-party bid.
If Trump were “mistreated” by the Republican Party, however, he says that he could still launch an independent bid.
When asked whether he could foresee a situation where he lost the nomination and was treated fairly, Trump stated, “Yes, there is. And there's also a way I could lose the nomination and feel that I was treated unfairly by the Republican Party.”
Currently, though, Trump has no opinion on how the party is treating him.
“Right now, I have no opinion,” he said. “I just know that I'm winning by a lot. I really have no opinion.”
