Donald Trump has doubled down in the face of a major backlash, telling multiple sources today that he won’t withdraw from the presidential race despite losing numerous endorsements, the Daily Beast reports.
Trump’s comments came as the fallout continued over the release of 2005 remarks. The video prompted numerous GOP members to withdraw their support and urge Trump to drop out.
But Trump didn’t seem fazed. “I’d never withdraw. I’ve never withdrawn in my life,” Trump told the Washington Post today. In comments to the Wall Street Journal, he said there was “zero chance I’ll quit,” adding that he’s getting “unbelievable” support despite mounting criticism.
