US presidential final debate: Trump unwilling to accept election results

The countdown to US Presidential begins as the final debate wound up this morning. And the highlight of the heated confrontation between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton is the former refusing to say he would accept the results of the election, and instead saying that he would have to wait and see.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump doubled down on controversial claims that the US election is rigged during a presidential debate Wednesday, refusing to say he will respect the result. “I’ll look at it at the time,” Trump said. “What I’ve seen is so bad.” “Let’s be clear about what he’s saying and what that means. He’s denigrating and talking down our democracy,” she said. Asked by the debate moderator whether he would concede if the results showed he lost to Clinton, Trump again demurred. “I’ll keep you in suspense, okay?” “This is horrifying,” Clinton said.

Donald Trump has spent much of the past two weeks complaining that “the election is absolutely being rigged by the dishonest and distorted media.”

Addressing the groping claims against Trump, she said: “Donald thinks belittling women makes him bigger.” “Nobody has more respect for women than I do,” Trump said as the crowd was heard scoffing.
