Asked if he would commit to a peaceful transfer of power after the election, Donald Trump offered an unequivocal “no” to a White House reporter on Wednesday night.
Said Trump: “Well, we’re going to have to see what happens. You know that I’ve been complaining very strongly about the ballots and the ballots are a disaster.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden reacted to Trump’s remarks later Wednesday night.
Said Biden: “What country are we in? I’m being facetious — I said what country are we in? Look, he says the most irrational things. I don’t know to say about it. But it doesn’t surprise me.”
