Will this be a big issue again?
On Wednesday (May 10), former President Donald Trump refused to commit to accepting the 2024 Presidential election results during his CNN town hall.
After Trump spent a lot of the hour-long heated discussion bashing the 2020 election results, where he lost to Joe Biden, moderator Kaitlan Collins questioned Trump if he would commit to accepting the 2024 election results.
Trump expressed he would only be willing to accept the 2024 results if he believed there was no voter fraud.
“Yes,” he responded to Collins’ question but qualified his affirmation by saying it was contingent on his belief that it is an “honest election.”
Collins pressed the former President on whether he would accept the results regardless of the outcome, leading Trump to repeat his statement, saying that if he believes the 2024 Presidential election “is an honest election,” he would “be honored to” accept the results.
During Wednesday’s town hall, Trump consistently made false claims that the 2020 presidential election was stolen as a result of voter fraud.
His comments led to the pair having Trump several heated discussions about Trump’s efforts to cancel the 2020 election, including a call to Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, during which Trump implored Raffensperger to “find” the votes required for him to win the election.
Trump’s remark caused a flood of criticism.
However, President Joe Biden used the town hall to boost campaign contributions, telling his supporters that if they didn’t want “four more years” of Trump, they should “pitch in” to Biden’s campaign.
