Donald Trump said that he’s ready to hold the election today and thinks he should be crowned the winner — even though polls show him behind.

Trump joked that he’s been thinking: ‘‘We should just cancel the election and just give it to Trump, right?’’

The GOP nominee had been talking about rival Hillary Clinton’s tax policies and making the case to a Toledo, Ohio audience that his proposals are much better.

He also joked about how popular a phrase he introduced to his stump speech this month — ‘‘Drain the swamp!’’ — has become at his rallies, comparing himself to singer Frank Sinatra embracing a song he wasn’t a huge fan of at first.


Trump says he thought the saying was ‘‘terrible,’’ but ‘‘now it’s become one of the hottest phrases anywhere in the world’’ and he likes it.
