Trump's Campaign Manager: Trump Would Not Concede Until Results Are 'Known, Certified, Verified'

Donald Trump’s campaign manager made appearances on several news broadcasts after Wednesday night’s presidential debate to explain the Republican nominee’s apparent threat to not accept the outcome of the election if he loses.

Trump did not say he would reject the voters’ decision, according to his aide, Kellyanne Conway. She claimed he meant that he won’t concede the race to Hillary Clinton “until the results are actually known, certified and verified.”

Newsmax noted that Conway was responding to an outpouring of outrage from many Republicans, as well as Democrats, who blasted Trump for becoming the first major-party presidential candidate to ever suggest that he might not be willing to lose gracefully.

On ABC News’ “Good Morning America,” host George Stephanopoulos was referring to George W. Bush’s disputed victory 16 years ago when he told Conway: “I imagine if you asked Al Gore in 2000 if he was going to respect the election results, he would have said ‘yes.’ He actually called to concede the election to Gov. George W. Bush and retracted it and as you know, we had six weeks until the Supreme Court of the United States decided who the next president would be.”

In a Newsmax TV interview after the debate, pollster John Zogby and political operative Dick Morris said it is dangerous for a White House hopeful to question the validity of the voting process. “It comes very close to challenging the Constitution,” Morris warned. “People will be very frightened about a presidential candidate that might or might not be willing to accept the results of an election. We are not a banana republic.”
