MINOT, N.D. — Will President Donald Trump accept the results of the November election if he loses?
A lot of people on the left don’t think he will and, to the embarrassment of Republicans, specifically, and Americans, generally, Trump himself has fueled the fires of that criticism with some typically stupid comments. In July, during an interview with Fox News’ Chris Wallace, the president refused to commit to accepting the results of the November election.
He’s also hinted at trying to delay the election.
Trump’s defenders accuse his critics of unfairly painting the president as an autocratic monster. It doesn’t help their case that Trump seems to delight in, at least rhetorically, if not in action, becoming the thing his critics say he is.
But here’s a question for those wondering if Trump and his supporters will accept the election: If the incumbent wins in November, will the left accept the results?
