Donald Trump Refuses To Clarify Whether He Will Accept The Result Of The US Elections

The President of the United States, Donald Trump, refused in an interview broadcast on Sunday to clarify whether he will accept the result of the November elections, and insisted again, without proof, that the vote by mail will “rig” the elections.

“I will have to see it. I will not simply say yes, I will not say it, and I did not do it the last time,” Trump said when asked if he will accept a possible defeat in November, during an interview with Fox News.

I think voting by mail is going to rig the elections, I really think so. “

The president was referring to his own statements in October 2016, when he refused to commit to abiding by the results of that year’s elections in case his Democratic rival, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, won.

Trump against the vote by mail

On this occasion, Trump has spent weeks discrediting the method of voting by mail, which many states have facilitated in the context of the coronavirus crisis, by denouncing that this can lead to electoral fraud, something about which there is no proof.

“I think voting by mail is going to fix the elections, I really think so,” said the president in the interview.

Trump acknowledged that he is “not a good loser” because he does not “like” to lose, and detracted from the barrage of polls that give his likely rival in November, former vice president and virtual Democratic candidate Joe Biden, a considerable advantage.

“False Surveys”

“I don’t think I’m going to lose. Do you know how many times I’ve been defeated? (…) I’m not losing, because those are false surveys, they were false in 2016 and now they are even more false,” he settled.

Do you know why I won’t lose? Trump insisted. Because the country, in the end, is not going to choose a man who is bankrupt. He’s mentally bankrupt “

The president reacted in this way to a Fox News poll that gave Biden eight points of advantage, but other polls have painted an even more favorable picture for the former vice president, including one published this Sunday by the Washington Post and the ABC chain that places the Democratic candidate 15 points ahead of Trump.

“Do you know why I am not going to lose?” Trump insisted. “Because the country, in the end, is not going to choose a man who is ruined. He is mentally ruined.”

Trump calls Biden “incompetent”

Trump declined to answer the question of whether he believes Biden is “senile,” but did call him “incompetent” for the Presidency, saying “he doesn’t even know he’s alive” and “he doesn’t know how to put two sentences together.”

A Biden campaign spokesman, Andrew Bates, told the Washington Post that it will be the Americans who “decide” the outcome of the election, adding: “The United States government is perfectly capable of expelling intruders from the White House. “

During the interview, Trump also insisted on his frequent warning that, if Biden comes to power, “the radical left will destroy” the United States with “the same type of ideology that took the reins of Venezuela,” where now “there is no water, no food or medicine. “

The Radical Left Democrats, who totally control Biden, will destroy our Country as we know it. Unimaginably bad things would happen to America. Look at Portland, where the pols are just fine with 50 days of anarchy. We felt in help. Look at New York, Chicago, Philadelphia. NO!

Fox News journalist Chris Wallace also challenged Trump over his recent claim that White House doctors had been “very surprised” by his “outstanding” performance when he underwent a cognitive test to detect possible related mental flaws. with the age.

Not that it is a very difficult test. They have a picture and they say ‘what is that?’ And it’s an elephant “

Wallace told Trump that he himself had undergone what is apparently the same test the president passed, known as the Montreal cognitive assessment, which lasts 10 minutes and in which patients are asked to identify animal names, Draw a clock and do other basic exercises.

“It is not that it is a very difficult test. They have an image and they tell you ‘what is that?’, And it is an elephant,” Wallace snapped, before which Trump insisted that “the first questions are easy,” but ” the last five are very difficult “, something that the journalist questioned again.
