He has not done that. I have been impressed with his energy over this last week. No one can say that he would have lost, if he does, due to lack of effort.

I also imagine that Mr. Trump will rather enjoy, over the next four years, of being on the outside and of being able to say "I told you so", when various events happen (terrorist attack, etc.). He will frequently feel assured that he was 'vindicated in the end'.

He will perhaps start his own TV station (since he was 'fired' from the Apprentice, I imagine he would love to start his own station), write books (well, ghost-written), and perhaps command high speaking fees. He will also work diligently to shine up the tarnished 'Trump Brand', which has taken a bit of a hit.

In short, he will take losing graciously (to the surprise of many, including some of his supporters), shake it off, and continue with his life.
If he loses, can we all stop calling him "Mr." Trump? We've all watched the Apprentice way too long.

Trump has booked the Hilton hotel in NYC for his party??? WTF! Was Motel 6 not available?
I'm surprised he didn't book it at his new Washington DC Trump hotel or one of his other hotels.

I hear there's room.

I prefer Loser Trump or 2016 Presidential Loser Trump.

Or better yet, the first man ever to lose to the first elected woman President of the United States Trump.

It is surprising he didn't book one of his own spaces. This whole campaign they've been using his spaces to host events, and then those spaces charge the campaign, often for 2-3 times what it would have cost at a Hilton or Marriott.

That's what I've read.

So why not use a Trump facility now?

Anyone know?

I think it's 50/50 whether he even comes out in person for his Election Night event. The fact that he's already planned it as a small, "intimate" event shows that he doesn't want to be embarrassed in front of a big crowd when he loses.
I think he will definitely throw a temper tantrum. He'll also announce a legal challenge to any state result that is under 5 pt win for HRC citing 'within margin of error' thus recount is a must. And then he'll ask his supporters to sign up for TrumpTV -- coming to a channel near you!

I've not heard any logical reason for that. Maybe if he loses, he does not want to taint the Trump brand? This is just as bizarre as the fact that in the waning days, he is stumping in Minnesota, where he has absolutely zero chance of winning. Is he beginning to lose it?

I think Drumpf may actually be kind of restrained after the beating he gets. I have little doubt that the RNC will be trying to keep him slightly this side of insane. They know that what he says and does in the wake of his humiliating defeat will reflect directly on them and their efforts in upcoming elections.

Carry on.

He will use the noun "movement" a lot making it seem like he's done something positive for our country.

He won't lose.
The dumb, blind and deaf Hillary supporters will be whining that the election was rigged.
