Rabat – Donald Trump, republican presidential nominee, claimed his that the general election in November “is going to be rigged”.
Speaking in Ohio on Monday, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump voiced his fears over the general election being “rigged.”
Trump claimed that he felt as though the Democrats had fixed their system so that Bernie Sanders would lose out to Hilary Clinton and that if he had not won by noticeable margins then the Republican nomination would have been taken from him.
“I’m afraid the election is going to be rigged, I have to be honest,” Trump told a town hall crowd in Columbus. He claimed that he hears “more and more” that the election may not be contested neutrally.
If Trump were to lose out to Clinton in November and publicly declare that he believes the election results were rigged then he would breaking the general election tradition, generating uncertain and unpredictable reactions from his followers and fellow Republicans, potentially causing moral outrage.
Trump has been making his best efforts in an attempt to capture angry Bernie Sanders supporters to now follow his campaign by claiming that the Democrats’ process was also “rigged.”
Monday’s Ohio event was Trump’s first campaign appearance since his spat with Khizr and Ghazala Khan, parents of Muslim army veteran who was killed back in Iraq, 2004. He did not once address incident throughout his speech.
The Khans questioned Trump’s knowledge and familiarity with the Constitution last week, encouraging Trump to bite back and question whether Ghazala Khan was allowed to speak. She then said that she is still too grief-stricken by the death of her beloved son.
Trump continued to disregard the Khan family in an interview on Sunday and again in tweets which surfaced on Monday morning.
