President Donald Trump is refusing to say if he will accept the results of the November 3 presidential election. In a wide-ranging Fox News interview the president would not give a straight answer, dodged the question, and insisted the election would be "rigged" due to mail-in voting.

"I'm not a good loser. I don't like to lose," Trump told Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace in an interview that airs today. "I don't lose too often. I don't like to lose."


Wallace asked Trump if he is "gracious."

The president shrugged, his right eye seemed to close, and then he refused to give a straight answer to that question also: "You don't know until you see. It depends."

He did not say on what, but falsely claimed mail-in voting "is going to rig the election."

Wallace pressed Trump, asking if he was "suggesting" he would not accept the results.

"No. I have to see," the president replied.

Wallace then reminded the president that during the 2016 debates he told Trump about the peaceful transition of power.

"Can you give a direct answer? You will accept the election?"

"I have to see," Trump cried defensively. "Look, No, I'm not going to just say yes. I'm not going to say no – and I didn't last time either," was Trump's final answer.

On the subject of the vacant Supreme Court seat, the Democrat from California didn't rule out launching an impeachment inquiry of Donald Trump (for the second time) or Attorney General Bill Barr, which would delay the Senate's ability to confirm a Supreme Court nominee of Trump's, either.
