Trump Remarks on Whether the Transition Would be Peaceful if He Loses

"We're going to have to see what happens," Trump said

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump was asked whether he would commit to a peaceful transfer of power should he lose this fall to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. The president declined to do so.

There'll be a continuation."

When asked by Fox News' Chris Wallace in June whether he would accept the election results, Trump said he would "have to see" and claimed that mail-in voting will "rig the election."
