At a rally in Delaware, Ohio, on Thursday, Donald Trump continued to undermine the legitimacy of the presidential election 19 days away — by saying he would absolutely accept the results of the election “if I win.”
“Ladies and gentlemen, I want to make a major announcement today,” Trump said at a rally in Ohio. “I would like to promise and pledge to all of my voters and supporters and to all of the people of the United States that I will totally accept the results of this great and historic presidential election — if I win.”
During the final debate on Wednesday, Trump refused to say if he will accept the outcome of the election, saying “I will keep you in suspense.” Several prominent Republicans, including 2008 GOP nominee John McCain, have criticized Trump over the comment.
Trump called on Clinton to “resign from the race” over claims that she was given debate questions ahead of time.
