Trump Refuses to Commit to Accepting Election Results

“I will keep you in suspense.”


Throughout the campaign, Donald Trump has continually complained that the election is “rigged” against him. When asked during the final presidential debate on Wednesday whether he would accept the results of the election, Trump refused to commit, saying, “I’ll look at it at the time.”

Trump went on to say that Hillary Clinton should not have have been allowed to run for the presidency, nor allowed to vote. When pressed again by moderator Chris Wallace, Trump replied, “I will tell you at the time. I will keep you in suspense.”

Clinton called Trump’s answer “horrifying.”

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
