When asked on Thursday about U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday declining to commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he loses the Nov. 3 presidential election, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany responded that “the president will accept the results of a free and fair election.” Also, Trump has reiterated that he to get rid of mass mail-out voting because it’s a system subject to fraud, said White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Thursday. The president, on Wednesday, appeared to suggest that if states got “rid of” the unsolicited mailing of ballots there would be no concern about fraud or peaceful transfers of power. Plus, when Trump and his wife Melania paid their respects to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg at the Supreme Court on Thursday, they were met with boos and chants of “vote him out!” by some of the crowd of mourners that had gathered to pay their respects. When asked about this incident, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany called the chant “appalling” and added that Trump usually draws crowds of supporters, not detractors.
