In the third and last TV duel, the Republican candidate Donald Trump had actually done quite well, he was mostly matter-of-fact, he did not make gross mistakes. But then, at the very end, he delivered an answer that was tough. The moderator asked whether he would accept the result of the American presidential election.
And Trump? He didn’t commit: “I’ll tell you when the time comes. I’ll make it exciting.”
The next day, Trump added again: “I will fully recognize the result of this great and historic election – if I win,” said Trump at a campaign event in front of supporters in Ohio. Trump only wants to recognize the election result if he wins. There was criticism. Now it comes from the top: US President Barack Obama said of Trump’s stance that he might want to contest an election defeat: “It’s not funny. It’s dangerous. It undermines our democracy.” Obama called on audience members at a campaign rally in Miami to vote and not be discouraged by Trump’s statements. “Your voice is important, your voice matters,” he said. Trump’s allegations are unfounded: election fraud in the US is less likely than being struck by lightning. “I wonder if Donald Trump has been to a polling station before,” said Obama. He hoped for a clear victory for Hillary Clinton so that there would be no doubt about the election result. First Lady Michelle Obama said in Phoenix that the Republican candidate is threatening to “ignore our votes and reject the result of this election”. It is the same as rejecting American principles. Republican runner-up Mike Pence also spoke about Trump’s controversial statements at an election rally on Wednesday. Both he and Donald Trump would “accept a clear result” on November 8th. However, they reserved the right to challenge a “questionable result,” said Pence in Reno, Nevada. Also: The media would exaggerate when interpreting Trump’s statements.
