Speaking Thursday in Ohio, Trump said that he's ready to hold the presidential election today and he should be crowned the winner.

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

The GOP nominee joked that he's been thinking, "We should just cancel the election and just give it to Trump, right?"

Trump 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 said he thought the saying was "terrible," but "now it's become one of the hottest phrases anywhere in the world" and he likes it.
