Trump: 'Democrats Give Up When I Turn Out' on Campaign Trail

President Donald Trump said his appearances on the campaign trail mobilizes Republicans while convincing Democrats to give up, according to The Wall Street Journal.

His comments came in a 20-minute impromptu interview in the Oval Office on Wednesday, the newspaper said.

He was asked if his campaign appearances could energize Democratic voters.

“It may — but it energizes my people much more than it energizes them,” he said.

“I think the Democrats give up when I turn out. If you want to know the truth, I don’t think it energizes them. I think it de-energizes them. I think they give up when I turn out.”

Trump said he expects Republicans to do “great” in the midterm elections

“As long as I can get out and campaign, I think they’re going to win, I really do,” he said. “It’s a lot of work for me. I have to make 50 stops, it’s a lot. So, there aren’t a lot of people that can do that, physically. Fortunately, I have no problem with that.”

Meanwhile, a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday showed 42 percent of Republicans say the president has no impact on their views of the party; 39 percent think more favorably of the GOP because of Trump and 18 percent say he makes them think less favorably of the party.
