Trump Won’t Commit to Peaceful Transfer of Power if He Loses
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is declining to commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he loses the Nov. 3 presidential election.
Trump told reporters on Wednesday that he would “have to see what happens" when asked about whether he’d commit to a peaceful transfer of power.
He said, "You know that I’ve been complaining very strongly about the ballots, and the ballots are a disaster.”
Trump has been pressing a monthslong campaign against mail-in voting, which more states are encouraging to keep voters safe amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The president, who uses mail-in voting himself, has baselessly claimed widespread mail voting will lead to massive fraud.
