President Donald Trump told supporters Saturday night that he will never speak to them again if he loses the election in November.
Speaking at a campaign rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina, Trump railed against rival Joe Biden, calling him “the worst candidate in the history of presidential politics.”
“If I lose to him, I don’t know what I’m going to do. I will never speak to you again,” Trump told the attendees at the rally. “You’ll never see me again.”
Neither the Trump nor Biden campaign immediately responded to a request for comment from Business Insider.
Biden, in yet another move to troll the president, released a 10-second ad shortly after Trump delivered his remarks, approving the message.

Trump made similar remarks in 2016 when he rivaled Hillary Clinton for the presidency.
“I don’t think I’m going to lose, but if I do, I don’t think you’re ever going to see me again, folks,” Trump said at a Maryland rally in April 2016. “I think I’ll go to Turnberry and play golf or something.”
Trump has signaled how he’ll react if Biden wins the election. In a June interview, he refused to say whether he would accept the results.
“I have to see, look, I have to see, I’m not just going to say yes, I’m not going to say no, and I didn’t last time either,” Trump said when asked for a clear answer on whether he’d accept this year’s election results.
Biden is leading Trump by about 6 percentage points, according to a national polling average from Real Clear Politics.
