‘There Won’t Be A Transfer, Frankly:’ Trump Outright Refuses To Commit To A Peaceful Transfer Of Power




President Donald Trump on Wednesday refused to commit to a peaceful transfer of power in January “win, lose or draw in this” November’s election.

Asked by White House correspondent Brian Karem to make a commitment to the American people, Trump refused, saying, “There won’t be a transfer frankly, there will be a continuation.”



“Mr. President, real quickly, win, lose or draw in this election, will you commit here today for a peaceful transferal of power after the election? And there has been rioting in Louisville, there has been rioting in many cities across this country – red and your so-called red and blue states. Will you commit to making sure there is a peaceful transferal of power after the election?” Karem asked the president.

“Well, we’re gonna have to see what happens, you know that. I have been complaining very strongly about the ballots and the ballots are a disaster and-” Trump responded as Karem interjected.

“I understand that, but people are rioting. Do you commit to making sure there is a peaceful transfer of power?” Karem asked again.

“Yeah. I know. We wanna have – get rid of the ballots and you’ll have a very transfer – we’ll have a very peaceful,” Trump said.




He added: “There won’t be a transfer frankly, there will be a continuation. The ballots are out of control, you know it, and you know who knows it better than anybody else, the Democrats know it better than anybody else. Go ahead.”
