White House Refuses To Say Trump Will Leave Office If He Loses A Day After Trump Said He’d Seek 3rd Term





White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Wednesday refused to say whether President Donald Trump would accept the results of the presidential election in November.

“Is the president saying if he doesn’t win this election that he will not accept the results unless he wins?” a reporter asked McEnany.



She refused to directly answer the question, instead saying: “The president has always said he’ll see what happens and make a determination in the aftermath.”

Former GOP congressman Joe Walsh said the statement was “tantamount to an act of war by a President against his own country.”




McEnany’s alarming response came a day after Trump declared his intent to run for office again in 2024, staying in office beyond the 8 years the U.S. Constitution allows for.

Trump’s declaration came less than 24 hours after he told his supporters at an event in Mankato, Minnesota: “We are going to win four more years. Then after that we’ll go another four years, because you know what, they spied on my campaign. We should get a redo of four years.”

The president on Tuesday told a crowd of supporters in Yuma, Arizona that he intends to shred the Constitution and serve at least 3 terms: “Considering we caught President Obama and sleepy Joe Biden spying on our campaign — treason — we’ll probably be entitled to another four more years.”
