Donald Trump has said that if he doesn't walk away as the 45th president of the United States when votes are counted in, the 2016 election that he considers his campaign a waste.

"If I don't win," he told Fox News Monday, "I will consider it a tremendous waste of time, energy, and money."

Trump said he has spent over $100m of his own money on his campaign, although records indicate that number is actually $66m.

After speaking with Fox he continued to repeat the message throughout the day. At a rally in Michigan, Trump delivered a similar message to his supporters.

"Lemme just tell you, if we don't win, this'll be the single greatest waste of time," he said at the final rally of his campaign in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Yet many of his supporters see the Trump campaign continuing on after the election, if the vote doesn't go to the Republican.

Some say they will turn to civil disobedience. A member of the paramilitary group the Oath Keepers, named John Shingara, told the Toronto Star that he would block the drive-thru lane of a fast food restaurant where he thinks illegal immigrants are working and call 911.

In just the past few weeks leading up to Election Day Trump himself has called his campaign a "movement." Movements, like the Civil Rights movement, Occupy Wall Street, and the Arab Spring, conceivably soldiered on without a single leader.

Some supporters have already begun turning on the New York real estate mogul. The Boston Herald Radio talk show spoke with Trump supporter Roger Stone Jr on Tuesday. "Trump has run one of the worst campaigns in modern political history in the state," said the Republican strategist of Trump's bid for Nevada.

"There has never been a movement like this... It's not going to happen again." said Trump at another rally in North Carolina Monday.

"Go vote because believe me, if we don't win, all of us, honestly, we've all wasted our time," he said. "They may say good things about us as a movement. It won't mean a damn thing."
