The former New York mayor said Tuesday that he was disappointed by the election result, but that he hoped for a change.
“I didn’t expect to win, I expected a change, and I was disappointed that I didn’t get that change,” Trump said on ABC’s “This Week.”
“I have the highest respect for my opponent.
I’m going to fight on the issues that he cares about and the issues he’s been passionate about,” Trump added.
“But I do have a huge problem.
Because I’m the most ego-driven person in the world, and that is the biggest problem that I have.””
Because I’m ego-centered and I’m a narcissist, and he’s the most self-absorbed person in this election, and we’re going to have a real crisis,” Trump told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.
“The other one is that we’re so divided right now, and it’s not good for our country.
I don’t want to lose any more votes than I won.”
Trump was referring to former Vice President Joe Biden’s stunning loss in November to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, who was known as the “Crooked Hillary.”
Trump said that he and the other Republican candidates had no choice but to focus on the “major issues” and that they would “have to do it for the next four years.”
“We’re going for four years, I don�t care what it is, and if I can do it, I want to do the right thing for the country and I want people to see it,” he said.
“You don’t win the election, you don’t lose the election,” Trump concluded.
“If you want to win the country, and the world wins the country.
We need to win it.
It�s going to take a lot of time.
And the big problem is that I don’t have a lot.”
Trump added that he has the “biggest ego” in the history of politics.
“And I have this ego, I have the biggest ego in the political world, I�m going to do whatever I can to win,” Trump claimed.
“I’m going, I can tell you that. And I donít want to see this country lose.”
