McEnany: Trump Will Accept The Results Of A “Free And Fair Election,” Democrats Have Said They Won’t | Video

5 mins read



White House Kayleigh McEnany said President Donald Trump will accept the results of a free and fair election and that it is the Democrats who are on record saying they will not accept the results at Thursday’s briefing.

“The President will accept the results of a free and fair election,” McEnany said. “I think that your question is more fitting to be asked of Democrats who have already been on the record saying they won’t accept the results of an election.”

Q Yeah, Kayleigh, I’m wondering if you can just clean up or clarify something the President said yesterday. If he loses this election, can you assure us that there will be a peaceful transfer of power?

MS. MCENANY: You are referring to the question asked by the Playboy reporter, right?

Q I’m referring to — with the President being asked if there would be a peaceful transfer of power, and he did not say yes.

MS. MCENANY: Yeah, I believe —

Q So I’m asking you: Will there be a peaceful transfer of power if he loses this election?

MS. MCENANY: I believe that question asked by the Playboy (inaudible) — in fact, I think I have it right here. He was asked —

Q I’m asking this question.

MS. MCENANY: He was asked — “win, lose, or draw” — whether he would accept the transfer of power. I’m not entirely sure, if he won, why he would accept a transfer of power. That is maybe the deranged wish of that reporter, but that’s not how governing works.

Q But I’m asking a very direct and very simple question. If the President loses this election, will this White House, will this President assure us that there will be a peaceful transfer of power? It’s a very simple question. We’ve been doing it since 1800.

MS. MCENANY: The President will accept the results of a free and fair election.

But I think that your question is more fitting to be asked of Democrats who have already been on the record saying they won’t accept the results of an election.

In fact, I have several of them here for you. South Carolina Democrat Jim Clyburn has said that Trump “is not going to win fairly.” Senator Barbara Boxer has said that the only way Trump will win is to “steal it.” That’s according to Democrat Senator Barbara Boxer.

The Washington Post has noted — they have a headline: “Democrats may not trust the results of the election if Trump wins.”

And then you have that beautiful quote from Hillary Clinton that “Joe Biden should not concede under any circumstance.”

So I think your fitting is more ques- — more a fitting — a fitting question for Democrats.

Yes.

Q Kayleigh, just to understand this clearly: Are the results legitimate only if the President wins?

MS. MCENANY: The President will accept the results of a free and fair election. He will accept the will of the American people.

Q So, for clarity, if he loses and it’s free and fair, he will accept that?

MS. MCENANY: I’ve answered your question. He will accept the results of a free and fair election.
