Kellyanne Conway: Trump considered quitting after "Access Hollywood" tape

Conway said that at the time, she questioned whether Trump might be testing her, or if he was really second-guessing himself.

By her account, she dismissed the idea of him quitting outright.


“You actually can’t,” she quotes herself saying, “unless you want to forfeit and throw the whole damn thing to Hillary.”

Trump is said to have fired back: “What do you mean, I can’t?”

She said she then explained to him that stepping out of the race at that point wasn’t in the picture, since early voting had begun.

“I know you don’t like to lose,” she says she told Trump, “but I also know you don’t like to quit.”

According to the book, Trump appeared to have doubts, asking Conway: “Will I lose? Will we lose? Can we still win?”
