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.

"It is a sad day when two members of the Democratic caucus are prepared to allow the Freedom to Vote Act to fail," the Vermont senator tweeted. "I hope very much they will reconsider their positions."

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki and Fox News' Peter Doocy

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki ended the week with yet another smack down of Peter Doocy, as the Fox News reporter admitted there are Republicans who "don't agree with voting rights."

"As you talked about a year ago and working with Republicans, now [President Biden] is talking about Republicans that don't agree with voting rights," Doocy complained, "he's describing them as George Wallace, Bull Connor, and Jefferson Davis. What happened to the guy who, when he was elected said: 'To make progress me must stop treating our opponents as our enemy'?"
