Donald Trump Claims US November Election Will Be ‘Rigged’ – Report

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump expressed his fears on Monday that the election “is going to be rigged.”

Addressing the crowd at a town hall in Columbus, Ohio, Trump said, “I’m afraid the election is going to be rigged, I have to be honest.”

Trump said he has been hearing “more and more” about the election being contested unfairly but did not speak any more about it. As reported by the Associated Press, Trump did not present any evidence to back up his claim.

Trump repeatedly made suggestions of a “rigged system” during the primary season. He first spoke about it against the Republican establishment and later the Democratic party.

After his loss to Texas senator Ted Cruz, Trump had asserted that the primaries were rigged, as reported by the Independent. Although he earned victories in most states, he continued claiming that the primaries were rigged, saying he was able to overcome the “fixed” system as a result of his “landslide” victories.

“I think my side was rigged. If I didn’t win by massive landslides,” he said.

Speaking on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” on Monday, he said, “November 8th, we’d better be careful, because that election is going to be rigged. And I hope the Republicans are watching closely or it’s going to be taken away from us.”

Trump’s speech in Columbus was his first appearance since the feud between him and the parents of an Army veteran killed in Iraq in 2004. Trump did not mention the tussle or his criticism of the parents Khizr and Ghazala Khan who had questioned his familiarity with the Constitution at the Democratic National Convention last week.

Trump’s running mate Mike Pence said, “Capt. Kahn is an American hero. We honor him and his family … we cherish his family.” He added that Trump had great respect for veterans.
