At a rally in Columbus, Ohio on Monday, Republican nominee Donald Trump warned that that general election might be stolen from him.

“I’m afraid the election is going to be rigged,” he told supporters. “I have to be honest.”

Some observers saw Trump’s comment as a built-in excuse if he loses in November.

But the remark also suggested the possibility that he may dispute the outcome of the vote or refuse to concede to Clinton if he loses, potentially setting up a political crisis in November
