Donald Trump, who has repeatedly alleged the presidential election is “rigged” against him, suggested he may not accept the results if he loses. “I will look at it at the time … I will keep you in suspense,” said Trump, the Republican nominee, during Wednesday’s third and final debate with Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Clinton called the remarks “troubling” and said, “That’s not the way our democracy works. We’ve been around 240 years. We’ve had free and fair elections. We’ve accepted the outcomes when we may not have liked them, and that’s what must be expected of anybody standing on a debate stage during a general election.” Clinton said Trump has a long history of claiming things are “rigged” when they aren’t going his way, saying he even tweeted once the Emmys were rigged when his reality television show did not win three years in a row. To which, Trump exclaimed, “I should have gotten it.”
