President Donald Trump on Wednesday again declined to commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he loses the Nov. 3 presidential election.
Were going to have to see what happens, Trump said at a news conference, responding to a question about whether hed commit to a peaceful transfer of power. You know that Ive been complaining very strongly about the ballots, and the ballots are a disaster.
It is highly unusual that a sitting president would express less than complete confidence in the American democracys electoral process. But he also declined four years ago to commit to honoring the election results if his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, won.
This year, Trump has been pressing a months-long campaign against mail-in voting this November by tweeting and speaking out critically about the practice. More states are encouraging mail-in voting
to keep voters safe amid the coronavirus pandemic.

MSM and Democrats lie and cheat. Period.
If he loses due to apparent vote fraud he should not concede. But we should be prepared for what comes next. What we see going on in Louisville may be simply a dry run for November.
What a bunch of in your face spin from whoever.
Why should President Trump concede to cheaters and liars?
Do they mean like the peaceful protests?
All of a sudden they’re worried about peace.
I don’t want a crisis. I don’t want a war.
I want Trump to win in such an overwhelming way that the votes being waited on won’t matter and he will be declared winner early morning November 4
But if it doesn’t go down like that, then we will need to back him up whatever happens and whatever he decides.
Why should he? The Democrats have to cheat to win and they know it. I wont accept a Biden victory as legitimate!
Did the effing Democrats concede to peacfull transition of power in 2016? I think not!
I haven’t seen Biden commit to a peaceful transfer. He’s counting on chaos.
What if voting goes on for several months? Donald Trump is President until the fat lady sings.
The real headline was not used, I see.
Trump won’t commit to allowing us to steal the election!!!!
He’s too chaotic to count on anything except for his next nap.
On things like this - I’ve posted a duplicate or two myself - I search for a word that isn’t real common, in the case “peaceful”.
But I noticed this only because I saw the earlier one just a few hours ago.
Maybe that’s why I missed it.
And one does not “lose” when cheating is so prevalent.
What are they talking about....we haven;t had one for FOUR YEARS !!!
Why should Trump even consider this as a legitimate question.
All of this mail in voting should have never been a n option!
Throughout the entire pandemic, 400 people max have been allowed to be in Walmart Target and other shopping areas including Home Depot etc.
So why did this mail in voting even come to pass?
Demon-rat government officials shoved it through their states!
And it was purely dictatorial! People had NO VOICE in the matter just as with mask wearing. These are not laws!
Obviously demon-rat state politicians and members of congress put forth this unfounded edict to commit VOTING FRAUD!
Why should Trump and American citizens veiw this election as VALID?
Peacefully surrendering to a cheating lying opponent’s claim of victory would be stupid.
He should have replied, “let me just say this, I won’t be burning the place down if I lose. Can your side say that?”
Its a trap question
The media isnt unbiased here
The media doesnt care about democracy or peaceful transitions of anything
