WASHINGTON/DELAWARE (Reuters) – US Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said on Thursday he would accept the result of the Nov. 8 election – “if I win” – fueling Republican concerns his stance would make it harder for his party to maintain control of Congress.
His refusal to commit to accepting the election outcome was the standout remark of the third and final 2016 presidential debate between Trump and Democratic rival Hillary Clinton on Wednesday night. It ratcheted up Trump’s allegations the election was being rigged against him, and became the latest flashpoint in an unusually acrimonious race three weeks before voters go to the polls.
Clinton called the comment “horrifying.”
