The White House has avoided confirming that the President of the United States, Donald Trump, will recognize the results of the November 3 election in any circumstance in which the President himself has denounced that there may be “fraud” if he spreads voting by mail.
The debate that was opened by the doubts expressed by Trump was one of the topics raised at the press conference held by President Spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany on Wednesday. Journalists have asked him to clarify the official position after the president suggested that he could only lose the election if it was “rigged”.
“He believes fraud (…) is real, consistent with what we’ve seen across the country, especially in postal voting, which is prone to fraud,” said McEnany, reiterating a thesis Trump has repeatedly put forward had and for which there is no evidence.
When asked again about the possibility that Trump might not see the results, the spokeswoman replied, “The president has always said that he will see what happens (in the elections) and make a decision later.” “It’s the same as what he said last November,” he handled.
Trump first admitted Wednesday that the election result could be “close” after weeks of ignoring polls that put him behind his rival, former Vice President Joe Biden. Democrats are holding their national congress this week, which officially nominates former President Barack Obama’s right-wing man as a candidate.
