one final hope

Donald Trump just suggested he might not serve as president — even if he wins the election

Though Donald Trump is certain he wants to win the presidential election, he's seemingly not quite as sure he wants to accept the victor's spoils. In an interview with The New York Times published Thursday, the presumptive GOP nominee dodged answering the question of whether he'd actually accept the position of president if he beat Hillary Clinton, or if he'd consider being "the ultimate walk-off winner."

"I'll let you know how I feel about it after it happens," Trump said, after flashing what The New York Times described as a "mischievous smile." The Times also noted that the idea that Trump wants to win more than he wants to serve is "not exactly a foreign concept to close observers of this presidential race."

Trump's response could be yet another example of just how good he is at getting free press, or it could be a small sliver of hope for all those #NeverTrump voters out there. Read the full story over at The New York Times.
