I worked like to give Trump the benefit of the doubt and think that he has not really understood the question. I don't seriously think that he would ignore the election result of it's not in his favour, but you never knew for sure with Trump.

It is possible not to get any result on the coming Nov. 3 as the loser would bring a complaint to the court.

“I'll be right eventually.”

The new Federal Coronavirus plan. Just wait for it to disappear on its own. Actually, that isn’t new, its all this idiot has been doing so far. A few years and god only knows how many hundreds of thousands of American deaths from now, when the virus is eventually defeated by someone else, Trump will no doubt gloat about how right he was all along and how unfair the media was to him, the only true victim of the pandemic.

25 ( +26 / -1 )

The ads that Trump is currently running against Biden, which try to make people worry about the police being mostly absent under Biden, show videos of mobs and protesters, all of which were taken during Trump’s time in office. Trump “takes responsibility” for nothing. He blames someone else always, and then fires them. Fauci is almost out the door. He is only a disease specialist, and can’t be expected to know as much about a virus as Trump does.

Asking Trump if he will abide by the election result if he loses is a foolish endeavor which only encourages this cowardly narcissist to indulge in sensation-seeking trumptrashtalk to satisfy his insatiable appetite for boosting his self-importance. Refusal to leave office would only result in his complete disgrace as he is given the bum's rush by the boys in blue and frog-marched out of the WH and into the history books to replace Benedict Arnold as the bogeyman symbol of a traitor to the nation.

President Donald Trump is refusing to publicly commit to accepting the results of the upcoming White House election

Trump's got Barr and their Department of Justice plus the Federalist Society and their uber-'elites' pushing to keep the authoritarian-wannabe in the White House where they can continue to undermine the democratic principles the republic is built on to give themselves and their fellow .01% even greater authority. Trump sees Xi, Putin, Erdogan, MbS and other dictators and wants what they have.

Trump not ready to commit to election results if he loses

So the fake media are now replaying their 2016 hoaxes? That is pathetic.

-34 ( +4 / -38 )

That Fox interview was pure comedy gold - Trump vs Trump and neither side looked good... LOL

24 ( +25 / -1 )

I would love for him not to accept the election results just so I can see him physically hauled out of the White House.

31 ( +33 / -2 )

I don't seriously think that he would ignore the election result of it's not in his favour, but you never knew for sure with Trump.

Probably worth reminding people that he challenge the result of the last election claiming the Democrats had bussed in some 3 million fraudulent voters.  He even set up a commission (that quietly died) to investigate his claim.  Guess he just couldn't face up to the fact that Hillary got more votes then him.

27 ( +28 / -1 )

Trump is insane.

32 ( +34 / -2 )

I would like to counter argue Trump on this but the reality is, try to ask the question below to any democrat/Biden supporter and see what they have to say about the person they want in charge of the USA:

Without mentioning Trump, why do you support Biden?

Besides, I have to say Biden disgusts me a bit, despite the media blackout on his persona.

"if you don't vote for me you are not black"

"Poor Kids" Are Just as Bright as 'White Kids"

How about the countless footages of the old man fondling/molesting children in public?

2020 US elections are nothing but a joke. With such a weak candidate to fight against Trump I would say the election is already over.

-24 ( +4 / -28 )

So the fake media

When GoTrumpers can only attack one of their bugbears, in this case something they call 'fake media' and are unable to defend their Trump it's pretty clear they're giving up on him.

I would love for him not to accept the election results just so I can see him physically hauled out of the White House.

Yes! That would be quite a sight:Trump, screaming like a spoiled brat, kicked out by his own former security service.

So the fake media are now replaying their 2016 hoaxes? That is pathetic.

Yeah, in an article in which the president says his plan to deal with the pandemic is to just keep waiting for it to magically disappear while the bodies pile up, THAT is definitely the pathetic part.

The Biden campaign responded: "The American people will decide this election. And the United States government is perfectly capable of escorting trespassers out of the White House.”

Should have ‘elected’ a broken clock rather than a broken record, would have been more useful.

Trump's lied and cheated his whole life, and it's worked out quite well for him. What makes anyone think he would stop now?

Trump has no choice. He will no longer be president and no longer will have federal protection from those who will come to arrest him.

As someone who loves the Trump freak show, I hope that he loses in November and then announces that it's a fraud and that he is determined to stay on.

I will need a very, very big bag of popcorn for that.

Any challenge to the results will be resolved through the legal system well before January 20th.

I have no question at all that if there are any challenges and the SCOTUS decides someone other that Trump won, then the US Secret Service will escort him out of the White House, by force, if necessary. If a small "bump" on the head accidentally happened, I wouldn't look for any witnesses.

The US Secret Service, FBI, and all executive branch people are loyal to the Office. Absolutely no doubt in my mine about this. At 12:01, they won't take a bullet for the outgoing exPresident.

Can anyone who genuinely supports Trump point out encouraging words, speeches, policies, mandates that shows Trump's leadership during the worst global health crisis in a century?

Exactly!! 

Biden isn't a great candidate, but he'll win in a landslide over Trump.

Some have said he’ll need to win in a landslide to make Trump’s conspiracy theories and babyish whining about being a victim sound utterly ridiculous.

By the way, did anything come of Trump’s claim of millions of illegals voting and proving he won the popular vote? That is surely an issue that needs addressing before another election.

President Donald Trump must and will except November Presidential Election result.

Failure to win a second term, President Donald Trump must with graceful humility congratulate Joe Biden, and publicly except he has only himself to blame.

Well that’s assuming that Joe Biden has already successfully achieved that goal.

The polls and the media have all but installed Joe Biden as the next President.

“I don’t care what the military says,” the commander in chief said.

The Military will not care too much either when they throw out his bags on 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

he isnt losing, same as last time. So it doesnt really matter. The polls are down to asking for only 24% Republican responses when Republican voters are 33%. the latest Fox poll even had 7% of people who approve of Trump still voting for Biden. How does that make sense?

All that and Biden still only winning by 8% with a 3% margin of error.

he isnt losing,

That's the argument his racist supporters will use till he loses.

Wallace challenged Trump on some of his claims and called out the president at time, such as when Trump falsely asserted that “Biden wants to defund the police.” The former vice president has not joined with activists rallying behind that banner. He has proposed more money for police, conditioned to improvements in their practices. -- article

Why did Chris Wallace feel the need to lie to all American voters when he claimed that Biden not only never called for defunding the police but was going to give more $$$ to cops when this clip is all over the Internet:

I have a funny feeling Trump might have been trolling his haters. Given that it's clear the Left has never accepted losing the 2016 election and have behaved like enraged toddlers ever since, he wasn't drawing the level of discourse any lower that it has already plunged.

Not particularly presidential, but the haters have themselves to blame as much as Trump is as fault, and probably more.

-15 ( +1 / -16 )

WRONG!

They did have that last time (mail-in is nothing new) and Hillary did not fight it in court. But Trump will never leave no matter what.

All that and Biden still only winning by 8% with a 3% margin of error.

Fine! If Trump wins then he wins and Biden will not dispute it. Only Trump would dispute if Biden wins.

Trump Supporters: Only 3 miles of wall have been built and Mexico didn't pay for it. Hillary is not in jail. Obamacare wasn't repealed or replaced. Iran and North Korea are building nuclear weapons. There's no China deal. The deficit is the highest in history. Race relations are worse than ever. Unemployment is in the ten of millions. And our country is leading the world in infections and deaths during a pandemic.

Time to admit you were conned...

10 ( +12 / -2 )

Of course he won't! Dictators don't accept the notion of democracy, ergo Trump will not accept the results of the election when he loses. In fact, I have a feeling that as the polls continue to show him dropping and the election nears, he'll first try to delay it, under the guise of the corona virus (which he claims is disappearing and is under control), and then he'll just say it cannot be held. Period. Americans, you made your bed. You have a full-on dictator now. There's one last chance to get rid of him, and if he doesn't allow or accept it, you have to prepare for a forceful removal.

Anyone who supports Trump not accepting the results does not love the country or the Constitution, or democracy. Plain and simple.

I have a funny feeling Trump might have been trolling his haters.

So Trump's newest shambles is 'trolling'? I was wondering if it might have been 'sarcasm', 'fake news' or even 'I didn't say that'. We were all waiting for which one you'd pull out of the hat. I wonder if the WH will pull out the same excuse as you?

If the left had accepted the 2016 loss and moved on with some positive alternatives instead of the unrelenting and escalating negativity, race-baiting and so-on, things might be different. Trump has underperformed partly due to his own faults, and partly due to Democratic intransigence by blocking funding purely for political reasons. You have nothing of value to offer, so you can only destroy.

Come back and see me when you have policies and methods that will help restore the country, not destroy it.

Next!

The current opinion poll numbers from alphabet networks, Fox, CNN, NYT, WaPo, etc., are bogus from the get-go for two reasons:

The polls only canvass registered voters, not likely voters;

Trump voters lie to pollsters when they agree to take part as a way of giving Biden's believers/supporters (if there are really even any) a false sense of security that the majority of Americans hate the President and want what is happening in democrat-controlled places like NYC, Seattle, Portland, Chicago, etc, to happen in their hometowns; thus setting up U.S. liberals for an epic shellacking of 400-plus Electoral College votes for PDJT on Nov. 3rd.

Why did Chris Wallace feel the need to lie to all American voters when he claimed that Biden not only never called for defunding the police but was going to give more $$ to cops when this clip is all over the Internet:

I think I would trust the AP news over a Trump Campaign Twitter propaganda post. So yeah....try harder next time?

AP’S ASSESSMENT: False. Biden said he supports redirecting some police funding to address mental health or to change the prison system.

@egads man! "People have been saying this could be an option for him, to deny the election results. And he finally admitted it."

So right!

That picture of him is spot on. It shows his arrogance and mean spirited personality. He thinks he is living in a banana republic. What Biden said: "The American people will decide this election. And the United States government is perfectly capable of escorting trespassers out of the White House.” I will get out my popcorn and enjoy the entertainment if he tries to barricade himself in the bunker and try to use his private army to keep from getting evicted.

total wall is all we care about. When an illegal person walks up to our border, is it somehow relevant that the brand new wall built by Trump that is preventing their entry has replaced a previous wall that was in bad condition? they are probably upset cause they expected it to be that same broken wall their cousin climbed over last year.

to put in terms you guys can understand: Does their ladder and shovel need to be new or it doesnt perform its function?

-13 ( +3 / -16 )

So we have 3 new miles of wall per Trump term? Then Donald Jr. can become president and in his first term we will end up with 9....then 12 in his second term. When will Barron Trump be old enough to be president? Eventually he can take over the Trump wall legacy and continue with wall build pace of 3 miles every four years. Watch that whiplash!!

No they'll not be voting for Trump because of his very real "I'm not going to do anything at all about the pandemic that is killing Americans by the hundreds of thousands and OH LOOK! Me with beans!" narrative.

Nobody really gives a crap about his failure to build the wall now, his humiliation on that front is really just a side note now.

You seem to think that the Democratic party in opposition would not do what the previous Republican party in opposition did do. This is a Republican method, so there is no use you getting upset about it.

If the Democrats were as noble and upstanding as you seem to imply, then why would they stoop to the same level as the Republicans? With the exception of a few individuals on each side, they're all as bad as each other.

Just in case you're wondering, I'm not an American so can't vote in US elections. The main platforms I support in principle are to drain the swamp, but understand there are plenty of Republicans who see this as a threat to their gravy train as Democrats do, so they haven't been all that keen to helpful either. And Trump has been pretty haphazard about who he picks as advisors - that lowlife Bolton is just one example of poor judgment.

As for building the wall, the Democrats have been obstructive in allowing funding for that, using the tired sophistry of claiming racism as a motive for doing so. And the Dems intentionally misrepresent Trump's meaning about getting Mexico to pay for it. What he meant was stopping people illegally entering the US and sending money back to Mexico, and use the money that would otherwise stay inside the US to fund construction.

And Trump, for all his faults and bluster, is the only Western leader with the guts to stand up to China. Would you prefer Obama-style appeasement? Partly because of this, China is now facing more active resistance around the world for their nefarious behaviour.

Trump is refusing to publicly commit to accepting the results of the upcoming White House election... ...as he scoffs at polls showing him lagging behind Democrat Joe Biden. Trump says it's too early to make such an ironclad guarantee.

That's a really disturbing comment. Disputing the accuracy of opinion polls is one thing. Disputing the accuracy of the biggest opinion poll of all, the election, is another.

What action is Trump going to take if he doesn't like or accept the Presidential election result? Stay in the Oval Office with the door locked?

If the Democrats were as noble and upstanding as you seem to imply, then why would they stoop to the same level as the Republicans?

I implied no such thing. Why wouldn't they do to Trump what Repubs did to Obama?

I support in principle are to drain the swamp

If you support that principle then in practice you cannot support Trump. The swamp is deeper than ever.

And the Dems intentionally misrepresent Trump's meaning about getting Mexico to pay for it.

Lol! Is this trolling or sarcasm? 'I'm going to build a wall, and Mexico is going to pay for it (asterisk)'

Just in case you're wondering, I'm not an American so can't vote in US elections.

mail in voting is vulnerable to fraud: 49%

Prefer to vote in person: 59%

this is from the WaPo poll that only polls 24% Republicans.

So yes, if mail in voting is allowed because of "danger" of corona, and ballots are still being counted 10 days after the election, either losing side will be filing lawsuits.

Trump because the voting process was rigged. Biden because "I was 15 points ahead in the WaPo 2 days before the election, I couldnt have lost". Thats what these polls do, create doubt that Biden lost when he does.

-13 ( +2 / -15 )

Okay, so please hear me out on this. The IRS sent letters to every family that received the stimulus check, written and signed by the president. Can't the government do the same thing for mail-in ballots? It's not like each person just takes a random piece of paper, writes a name on it, and mails it in. I'm sure the government can make difficult-to-tamper-with mail in ballots. Perhaps something like SAT answer sheets. Fill in the bubbles with a #2 pencil and have machines record the data.

Relax. Trump will leave the white house - after his second term as elected president.

Trump stuck to what he had said back in February — that the virus is “going to disappear.” On Fox, he said, “I'll be right eventually.”

I just can't think with the fact that he blatantly lies all the time. It's not that he makes dubious statements and someone in opposition twists his words. Trump lies. He speaks and acts like a disreputable used car salesman.

Personally, I find him disgusting and cannot understand why he is in the position of President. His ineptitude and bluster are also bringing the world to the brink of another war.

Invalid CSRF

He said he was “not offended either by Black Lives Matter,”

That's mighty white of you... and, it goes a long way in proving he is a racist himself.

but at the same time defended the Confederate flag, a symbol of the racism of the past, and said those who “proudly have their Confederate flags, they’re not talking about racism.”

How can you be proud of the Confederate flag and not know that the flag represents racism at its ugliest time? I guess it might indicate that many of his Southern base are dumber than rocks.

The funny thing is after reading most of these posts the same thing is happening all over again. There is a very real possibility that Trump will win the Whitehouse again in 2020. Thank the Democrats for Joe Biden.

MAJORITY Say Trump Does Not Have the Mental Soundness to Serve in a FOX NEWS POLL!

Sunday Mr. Trump said "I supplied everybody"

He didn't. He made states compete against each other for PPE, ventilators and other resources.

In an early April briefing, Jared Kushner scolded states for asking for PPE from the national stockpile saying "the notion of the federal stockpile was it’s supposed to be our stockpile, it’s not supposed to be states’ stockpiles that they then use."

On March 19th during a conference with state governors begging for supplies and help from the Federal Government Mr. Trump said that the Federal Government "is not a shipping clerk".

He's supplied a lot of lip but not much else.

He doesn't even know how to lie properly.....

As for building the wall, the Democrats have been obstructive in allowing funding for that, using the tired sophistry of claiming racism as a motive for doing so. And the Dems intentionally misrepresent Trump's meaning about getting Mexico to pay for it. What he meant was stopping people illegally entering the US and sending money back to Mexico, and use the money that would otherwise stay inside the US to fund construction.

Who had the House, Senate, and White House from 2016-18? Why wasn't it done then? And as for misrepresenting Trump, what a joke. Maybe you should re-read his statement; "Mexico will pay for the wall, mark my words, mark my words". OK, words marked - have they paid?

And Trump, for all his faults and bluster, is the only Western leader with the guts to stand up to China. Would you prefer Obama-style appeasement? Partly because of this, China is now facing more active resistance around the world for their nefarious behaviour.

How? By being business partners with them and giving them millions of dollars in contracts? Or as Bolton said, maybe by getting on his knees and pleading with Xi for help with his failing campaign?

Take off those orange-colored glasses...

Chris Wallace is not the norm when it comes to Fox News. In my opinion, he did a creditable job as a moderator during the 2016 presidential debates.

I just noticed the pickup truck behind Trump in the photo. The only thing missing is a red neck who needs a haircut wearing a T-shirt and ball cap and a rifle rack in the back of the cab with a Confederate flag sticker affixed to the back window.

In other words, EVERYTHING necessary for your fantasy to come true is missing. So Its a really weird thing to say.

The funny thing is after reading most of these posts the same thing is happening all over again. There is a very real possibility that Trump will win the Whitehouse again in 2020. Thank the Democrats for Joe Biden.

Honestly, you're not wrong.

How can the Democrats obstruct the Mexican government? That's who Trump said he'd get the money from.

@Busby... what a great job you do as a seer for what Trump 'really means'. Trump mumbles something meaningless and/or a blatant lie and someone tells you what he really meant.

Why did Chris Wallace feel the need to lie to all American voters when he claimed that Biden not only never called for defunding the police but was going to give more $$ to cops when this clip is all over the Internet

You are wrong. But let’s just imagine Chris Wallace’s comments were locker room talk or sarcasm. Nah, you’re still wrong.

A megalomaniac is a pathological egotist, that is, someone with a psychological disorder with symptoms like delusions of grandeur and an obsession with power. We also use the word megalomaniac more informally for people who behave as if they're convinced of their absolute power and greatness. The person - until 2016 who was most associated with this word - was definitively Adolf Hitler. The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich embedded the idea of evil personified in my mind. A second term (legitimately or under martial law) of Trump will update the term in more diabolical ways.
