Trump has repeatedly mocked Biden’s candidacy and suggested it was embarrassing to lose to the former vice president.
The New York Times reported that Trump was behind Biden in the polls as well as in campaign contributions.
Biden raised the record to $ 383 million compared to Trump’s $ 247 million last month.
Trump said he did not plan to raise any money.
“I can raise more money,” he said. “I’m going to be the biggest fund-raiser in the world, but I don’t want to do it.”
In the past few weeks leading up to the election, Trump has come under sharp criticism for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, a New York Times bulb report about his tax return, showing that he only paid $ 750 in taxes in 2016 and 2017, as well as a myriad of legal battles.
