President Trump struck a hopeful tone during his closing statement at the final 2020 presidential debate on Thursday but warned that the economy will "go to hell" if Joe Biden wins.
KRISTEN WELKER, NBC NEWS: Imagine this is your inauguration day. What will you say in your address to America--to Americans who did not vote for you? You'll each have one minute starting with you Mr. President--
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: We have to make our country totally successful as it was prior to the plague coming in from China. Now we're rebuilding it and we're doing record numbers. 11.4 million jobs in a short period of time, et cetera. But I will tell you--go back. Before the plague came in--just before--I was getting calls from people that were not normally people that would call me. They wanted to get together.
We had the best Black unemployment numbers in the history of our country. Hispanic, women, Asian, people with diplomas, with no diplomas, MIT graduates, number one in their class, everybody had the best numbers. And you know what? The other side wanted to get together. They wanted to unify. Success is going to bring us together.
We are on the road to success. But I'm cutting taxes and he wants to raise everybody's taxes. And he wants to put new regulations on everything. He will kill it. If he gets in you will have a depression the likes of which you've never seen. Your 401(k)s will go to hell and it'll be a very, very sad day for this country.
