Fox’s Chris Wallace: It’s ‘Troubling’ Trump Is Preemptively Questioning Election Results
Weeks after pressing President Donald Trump on whether he’d accept the results of the November election, Fox News anchor Chris Wallace said on Tuesday that he finds it “troubling” that the president is claiming the only way he’ll lose is if the election is “rigged.”
During his wide-ranging and contentious interview with Wallace last month, the president repeatedly declined to say he’d accept the election results if he loses, telling the Fox newsman that he’ll “have to see” while adding that “mail-in voting is going to rig the election.” In the final 2016 presidential debate, which was moderated by Wallace, Trump also suggested he wouldn’t accept the results because of the “rigged” process.
After Wallace further praised Michelle Obama’s much-lauded DNC speech and said Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden needs a “strong” performance to put “mental acuity” questions to rest, America’s Newsroom anchor Sandra Smith brought up Trump’s latest complaints about the vote.
“We have to win the election,” Trump said at a campaign event on Monday. “We can’t play games. Get out and vote. Do those beautiful absentee ballots or just make sure your vote gets counted. Make sure because the only way we’ll lose this election is if the election is rigged.”
