US President Donald Trump
on Tuesday exuded confidence of winning the
, asserting that he will turn around the country's economy for the second time.
"This is a very important election. We have done a great job. We had to turn it off, as I said, turn it off, now we have started it again. As you know, they announced two weeks ago record job numbers, almost five million people, and that be the last month, which was also a record, 2.8 million people. Nobody has ever done what we have done and now we are doing it twice," Trump told reporters at a
"And I think by Election Day, you are going to see some incredible numbers. The third quarter is going to be really good. The fourth quarter is going to be great, but the next year is going to be one of the best economic years. So hopefully, I will be able to be the president, where we say look at the great job I did," he said.
Trump was responding to a question on whether he will win the November presidential polls. "Do you see yourself as the underdog in this race? Do you see yourself losing in the fall?" he was asked.
"No, I do not. I think we have really good poll numbers. They are not suppression polls. They are real polls," the president asserted.
"We won a race where it was the same thing, 2016. We had polls that were fake. They turned out to be fake. Not all, couple of them got it right. Three of them, to be exact, three of them. One of them was unsuspecting, but they got it right. They were very proud of it. But we had, in 2016, something even more so. But we got in," he said.
The media, Trump said, does not treat him fairly.
"They never have and perhaps they never will. But maybe they will only turn this around for a second time. And it is going to happen very quickly. When we turn it around for a second time, maybe they will. I think we are doing very well in the polls and I think you have a silent majority, the likes of which this country has never seen before," Trump said.
