Donald Trump wants to know why the U.S. doesn't just "cancel" the Nov. 8 presidential election and make him the 45th commander-in-chief.
At a campaign rally in the key battleground state of Ohio on Thursday, Trump highlighted the "differences" between him and Hillary Clinton, claiming his Democratic opponent wants to raise taxes on small businesses by as much as 45 percent.
"What a difference. What a difference. And just thinking to myself right now, we should just cancel the election and just give it to Trump, right?" Trump said as the audience erupted in applause.
"What are we having it for? What are we having it for? Her policies are so bad. Boy do we have a big difference," he added.
As for Trump's claim that Clinton would raise taxes on small businesses, Clinton's website promises that she would instead "simplify and cut taxes for small businesses so they can hire and grow." At the same time, Clinton has said she will raise taxes on the wealthiest Americans, Wall Street and large corporations so that everyone pays their "fair share."
Trump, on his campaign website, promises to "reduce taxes across the board" while at the same time ensuring the "rich will pay their fair share."
