“We have a couple of cases where people who aren’t supporting me. They are losing and I’m winning states, and you’ve seen that, that’s all over the place. So you know, I was very disappointed in Rob, but he is free to do whatever he has to do,” Trump told WMCH, a local NBC affiliate.
He added that GOP leaders who have distanced from him are “doing themselves a tremendous disservice.”
“We are actually up substantially in Ohio. We have tremendous support from the people,” he said. “We’re doing fantastically well in Ohio.”
Trump is currently leading Clinton by less than a percentage point on average in Ohio, according to Real Clear Politics.
He walked away from Thursday’s interview when the NBC reporter asked him about being called a “racist” and “sexist.”
Portman rescinded his support of the GOP nominee after the Washington Post published video from 2005 of Trump talking about trying to grope women, calling the remarks “offensive and wrong.”
