Trump suggests general election could 'be rigged'

Wednesday, 10 Aug, 2016

Khizr Khan, with his wife at his side and a pocket Constitution in his hand, delivered an emotional speech during the convention that was highly critical of Trump.

"They've been turned away for political reasons".

Asked on MSNBC Monday whether Trump should apologize, Ghazala Khan said: 'I don't want to hear anything from him and I don't want to say anything to him'.

Mr Trump's unwillingness to let the matter subside sparked outrage from several Republicans. "That's with other people in the race", he said.

He said the number allowed in could not have been expanded at the last minute, even though the room clearly had a lot of empty space. Please see our terms of service for more information.

Trump was known during the primary season for decrying the entire process as corrupt, railing against the party for undermining him, as he saw it, and claiming that, as a party outsider, the delegate system worked against him. That primary was won by Ohio Gov. John Kasich. Trump used this extreme characterisation of Clinton when speaking about the decision of Senator Sanders to support her in the election. In a packed school gym in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, he called the former secretary of state "the devil". "They lost their jobs", Mr. Trump said. Could Cruz - or Marco Rubio - be more competitive in, say, Virginia or Colorado than Trump looks to be?

"That's what I do".

"He (Sanders) made a deal with the devil".

Rep. Mike Coffman, R-Colo., said he was "deeply offended when Donald Trump fails to honor the sacrifices of all of our fearless soldiers who were lost in that war".

But at the Monday rally he said, "His people are angry at him, and they should be".

"I think we have widespread voter fraud, but the first thing that Trump needs to do is begin talking about it constantly", Stone said.

The businessman made the comment on Monday during a speech in OH, where he also called his rival Hillary Clinton "the devil".

Trump said Friday that Clinton and the Democratic party were trying to "rig" the election debate calendar by pitting two of the three events against prime-time National Football League games. "But if we put out a long, perfectly structured news release like we did yesterday nobody pays attention to it".

The Republican nominee for president was set to speak at Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus at 3 p.m. ET. He spoke about the economy, veterans, and Russian Federation.

Requests to Trump's campaign for additional explanation were not returned. "That was on Obama's watch", he said.

"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.

Trump during the primary repeatedly slammed the "rigged system" he claimed was working against his campaign to capture the Republican nomination for president.

The statement could be an effort by Trump to lay the groundwork of an excuse if he loses the general election.

Trump responded, "I have my own ideas".

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". What mother could? Donald Trump has children whom he loves.

House Speaker Paul Ryan condemned any criticism of Muslim Americans who serve their country, but avoided mentioning Mr Trump.

Less than 100 days remain to the US presidential election.

With that, Trump said he also plans to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement.

That map gives Trump 273 electoral votes to Clinton's 265.
