As Donald Trump sets the stage for what he asserts will be a fraudulent election, he has caused widespread controversy for refusing to confirm that he would accept the outcome of November’s election.
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany did little to assuage such fears when she took a reporter’s question during a news briefing on Wednesday.
“The president believes he’s done a great job for the American people, and that will show in November,” she said.
Going on to note that Trump “believes that voter fraud is real” despite a dearth of evidence that such a trend is prevalent or increasing.
Pressed even further to specify whether the president would concede defeat if Joe Biden wins on Election Day, McEnany would only say that he “has always said he’ll see what happens and make a determination in the aftermath.”
