WASHINGTON— President Donald Trump on Wednesday again declined to commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he loses the Nov. 3 presidential election.“We’re going to have to see what happens,” Trump said at a news conference, responding to a question about whether he’d commit to a peaceful transfer of power. “You know that I’ve been complaining very strongly about the ballots, and the ballots are a disaster.”It is highly unusual that a sitting president would express less than complete confidence in the American democracy’s electoral process. But he also declined four years ago to commit to honoring the election results if his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, won.

They are trying to pigeonhole him and, as a businessman he recognizes this. Does not mean he will not step down if the election if legitimate. But it does mean the left will face some battles and he will not go down with a fight if this looks like a scam election with the mail-in ballots bearing little resemblance in percentages as compared to the in-person and more stringent absentee ballots. It is a sad day in America that the left has even created the scenario for election stealing on a grand scale. Folks... this could get really really really ugly. Really ugly.

I watched Trump’s news conference and stupid questions about this and Meghan Markle are what are turned into headline breaking news. Rioters shooting cops and new Biden corruption exposed are of no consequence to the fake news.

The way to avoid election fraud us to vote out every democrap and I mean everyone of these traitors. Flip the house and add to the Senate. The anarchists cannot claim the presidency if the house flips overwhelmingly. When the term “ugly” is used i translate that to mean war. Civil War. Nations of the world would never think it but I believe we are already in a Civil War. True Patriots only lack a true leader to wage and win this war.

The AP, doing what it does best: Yellow Journalism. Mention five states that routinely have no problem with mail-in ballots (but don't mention they've been doing it for five years). Forget to mention PA, where the Democrat Supreme Court voted 5-2 to accept ballots up to three days late, allow extra unmonitored ballot collection boxes whereever, allow polling places in Philadelphia without Republican monitors. (Many precincts have no Republicans.) And don't forget Nevada, ballot harvesting, etc. etc.

If the democrats could refrain from cheating. I would be shocked. But Trump isn't your problem, AP. We are. If the elections looks tampered with, Trump won't have a prayer of holding us back from utterly destroying every last one of you Elitist prigs. America will have to breed a whole new retinue of media types and pols, because you utter failures will be lucky if you're not due feet under!

Heck, the previous administration did not provide a peaceful transition of power. They spied on him during the campaign, during the transition, and after he was inaugurated. They resisted nearly every appointee, and used a Special Prosecutor to ratchet up lawyer bills to essentially bankrupt people so they'd quit the administration.

The headline doesn’t match the story. The media want him to accept fraud before it is committed. I remember 4 years ago Hillary Clinton kept nattering about how awful it would be for the country if Trump wouldn’t accept the election results, then after she lost she and the Dems have spent the last 4 years not accepting the election results.

I wish he had said, Why don't you ask the Democrats and their comrades promising to burn things down, blow things up... a few steps beyond what they have done for the last four years, which included trying to take Trump down twice by Muller and by impeachment, with NO rest in between, with incessant attacks, accusations, and every other type of abuse that would make a weaker person crumple. The question should be, when are YOU, you corrupt, venal and stupid media going to report. And then, Have you reported on the Biden Family corruption document produced in the Senate? Lastly, why won't Bide/Harris condemn the violence and threats? Finding hard to come up with more words to describe how much contempt i have for the media, MSM, the left, corrupt Democrat cowards, seditious Fifth Columnists, traitorous rats. I just hope there are enough smart, patriotic voters to outnumber these creepy Quislings.

His response should have been: Stupid question! You act like I am going to barricade myself in the White House with a rifle. You want to talk about a peaceful transfer of power? Ask the Democrats... From the day of my inauguration the Democrats have led the Resistance. There were nationwide protests the day after my inauguration protesting my administration, before I had even done anything. The Democrats tried to impeach me more than once and carried out the impeachment farce leading to an unsuccessful trial wasting the Senates time. The Democrats have blocked and challenged everything that I have proposed, even if it was something that they had previously supported. The Speaker of the House and Senate Minority Leader continually call me illegitimate. Democrats encourage the continued riots, looters, and unrest in the streets of major American cities. When I even suggest that something be done about it they call me a fascist for daring to question their "peaceful protests". Antifa and BLM rule the streets and anarchy reigns and they do nothing but encourage them and blame me for their actions. Democrats have never accepted the results of the 2016 election and continue to act as if they won. As a member of the media, you should ask them, when will you accept the results of the 2016 election and will you also accept the results of the 2020 election if and when I am re-elected President?

If PDJT answered the way #32 says, the AP's article the next day would be "Trump won't commit to peaceful transfer of power if he loses" (they ask, to set up the response they want, and if the one they ask doesn't give the answer they are trying to get, they distort their report to make it look like he did give that answer. (And they just make it up if they can't find a way to spin it their way.) That's the American Media for us today. Way more egregious in the MSM, but present to some degree in all our media.

Former Vice President Joe Biden has no public events scheduled Thursday — the ninth day in September the Democrat nominee will not be on the campaign trail. Biden’s campaign called a “lid” at 9:20 a.m Thursday morning, meaning that it had no public events or travel scheduled for the rest of the day. A “lid” usually also means the campaign will not conduct press conferences or dispense press releases the remainder of the day. Biden’s team also clarified that Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), the Democrat vice presidential nominee, had no public events scheduled for Thursday and, therefore, would not be on the campaign trail, either.

With the election just 40 days away, the pitched battle between the Democrat Party and Donald Trump over the safety (integrity, security, validity; you pick) of mail-in voting, among other charges of voter fraud, continues to intensify.

Newsom said that the “audacious” goal was necessary to achieve the state’s goal of 100% renewable energy by 2045. Newsom said that his new executive order would “eliminate” the sales of “internal combustion engines” and move to electric vehicles — a move that he said would create jobs and allow California to “dominate” the market, and address climate change. Those who currently own gas-powered vehicles would still be allowed to operate them and to sell them on the used market.
