If his presidential campaign doesn’t work out, Donald Trump has a backup plan — a long vacation.

“At the end it’s either going to work or ... I’m going to have a very, very nice, long vacation,” Trump said on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” Thursday.  

The Republican nominee also said he doesn’t worry about polls that show Hillary Clinton leading and remains confident that support for her will fade, so he doesn’t plan on changing his tactics.
