Donald Trump says election might be 'rigged'

Cheryl Sanders
August 11, 2016

Another billionaire businessman was on the campaign trail Monday.

What she said: "It's going to be up to all of us to repudiate the hatefulness, attacks on distinguished military leaders ... or insulting the family of a fallen soldier, Captain (Humayun) Khan, an American Muslim who sacrificed his life to protect his unit and other soldiers", she told a few thousand gathered outdoors under the hot sun at Fort Hayes Metropolitan Educational Center. We shall see what happens when the new polling data is released in the coming weeks, after Trump went after a Gold Star mother.

But his latest comments could hurt Trump's general election campaign as his supporters might decide not to turn out to vote if the election is already "rigged" against their candidate.

Though Stanislav expressed a desire of party unity, the only elected Republican official who participated in the event was state representative Andrew Brenner.

It's likely the ongoing controversy will continue throughout Monday, and Trump may address it in his speech. Bernie Sanders for endorsing Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary, even as some Sanders supporters have continued to resist unifying behind the nominee.

Mr. Burga added that Mr. Trump's "ambivalence on the 2009 auto rescue" is "disconcerting" and ignores that the bailout "preserved thousands of OH jobs and set up a comeback for this industry, which had its strongest year ever in 2015".

"I say to President-elect Bush that what remains of partisan rancor must now be put aside, and may God bless his stewardship of this country", Gore said on December 13, more than a month after the day of the election and after the Supreme Court had halted the ballot count in Florida. Pennsylvania is more problematic for Trump as Clinton holds a 4.4 point lead in the poll of polls in the state.

Mr. Trump said he has a friend who builds factories who claims that Mexico is the "eighth wonder of the world" for the number and size of factories being built there.


Trump said Sanders "made a deal with the devil" and said of Clinton: "She's the devil".

"Rather than engage in a back-and-forth, the speaker is going to remain focused entirely on ensuring we deliver strong Republican majorities this fall", Zack Roday said in an emailed statement. Nor did he mention them at a Monday night rally in Mechanicsburg, Pa.

Trump responded, "I have my own ideas". "If I were president, his son wouldn't have died, because I wouldn't have been in the war if I was president back then". She's said she finds it too painful to talk about her son. "So that's for political reasons", Trump alleged.

Pence asked the crowd to quiet down.

At Trump's town hall in Columbus, he sought to assure his supporters that he is knowledgeable on foreign affairs, and then claimed that it was Obama that forced Russian Federation into an alliance with China. "We should have a revolution in this country!"

In an interview with ABC News over the weekend, Donald Trump seemed to suggest that Russian Federation doesn't have a presence in Ukraine even though its forces invaded the country and took control of a region called Crimea in 2014.

Donald Trump, republican presidential nominee, claimed his that the general election in November "is going to be rigged".

He did not elaborate or offer any proof on his claims, only saying that he had been hearing "more and more" that the election would not be a fair contest. "Because I think my side was rigged", he said last week of the Republican primaries.


The campaign of his opponent, Democratic former Gov. Ted Strickland, renewed its call for Mr. Portman to retract his endorsement of Mr. Trump. On Monday, Trump was denounced by Republican Sen. When George W. Bush won reelection in 2004, rumors about rigged voting machines were rampant.

Trump is headed to OH after spending last week in Colorado, another battleground state.

While Trump has predicted victory in November, he also suggested that "lazy" voters could be blamed if he loses.

"We're not going to give any money to support Donald Trump", Wright explained.

At the rally later, he accused the news media of misinterpreting his "very good answer over the weekend". It now looks exceedingly hard for him to assemble even the barest Electoral College majority without beating Hillary Clinton in a trifecta of the biggest swing states: Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Network officials sought to defuse some of the frustration by announcing that Koch-backed groups would feature Clinton in Senate campaign ads, tying her policy stances to those of Democratic contenders in battlegrounds states such as Ohio. At least three other polls released over the past month have showed Clinton and Trump tied, and Real Clear Politics' polling average for oh is now 42.6 percent Clinton, 41.8 percent Trump.

So what kind of Election Day rigging is Trump anxious about?

He added that he would be "delighted" to meet Trump between now and the election.
