Republicans, Democrats react to Trump’s comments on peaceful transfer of power

Global News published this video item, entitled “Republicans, Democrats react to Trump’s comments on peaceful transfer of power” – below is their description.

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other top Republicans on Thursday repudiated President Donald Trump’s refusal to commit to a peaceful transfer of power and assured American voters that November’s election outcome will be accepted. Trump declined to embrace a peaceful transfer on Wednesday in response to a reporter’s question, and said he expecting his upcoming election battle with Democrat Joe Biden to be settled by the Supreme Court. Democrats accused Trump of threatening American democracy and further politicizing his upcoming choice to replace the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg by suggesting the yet-to-be named nominee would intervene in the election’s outcome. Republicans invoked the guarantees of the U.S. Constitution, but did not openly condemn Trump. Trump, who trails Biden in national opinion polls, has long sought to cast doubt on the legitimacy of the election, claiming without evidence that mail-in voting would be rife with fraud. “The ballots are a disaster,” Trump said on Wednesday.
