Donald Trump on Monday said his presidential campaign would reach Election Day victory, regardless of the damage it takes.
"I may be limping across that finish line, but we're going to get across that finish line," he told listeners during a campaign rally in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., one day after the second presidential debate.
"I figure that final week we'll make a six stops a day and call them 'get out the vote' stops," the Republican presidential nominee added.
"We're going to do a lot. We're working very hard. We're not doing this to come in second. If we come in second, your Second Amendment is in trouble because [Hillary Clinton] wants to decimate it."
Trump also criticized the media and polling firms for helping boost Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee.
"This crooked media, you talk about 'Crooked Hillary,' they're worse than she is," he said. "Without the media, Hillary Clinton couldn't be elected dog catcher.
"Even the polls are rigged," Trump added. "We're in a rigged system folks. We have to make sure this election is not stolen from us and not taken from us.
"It is so important that you vote in November, that we get rid of these liars, we get rid of these politicians, we get rid of the Hillary Clintons of the world."
Trump is struggling with the fallout of a leaked audio recording from 2005 capturing lewd remarks he made about women.
The billionaire discussed his failed sexual advances toward a married woman in the clip, and he also spoke of groping women without their consent.
Republicans have responded to the recording with outrage, with some withdrawing their endorsement of Trump and others calling him to exit the presidential race.
Trump trails Clinton by about 6 points nationwide less than a month from Election Day, according to the latest RealClearPolitics average of polls.
