WASHINGTON (TIP): After US President Barack Obama said on Oct 20 that Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump should stop “whining”+ , his party colleague Hillary Clinton took Obama’s comment further to say that “every time Donald thinks things are not going in his direction, he claims whatever it is, is rigged against him.”
In the third US Presidential debate today, Trump was asked specifically if he would allow a “peaceful transition of power” in the event he loses the election+ on November 8.
Trump refused+ to say if he would.
“..I will tell you at the time. I’ll keep you in suspense. OK?” he said, grimly.
Clinton then jumped in to say that every time something goes against him, Trump grumbles it’s “rigged.
” You know, every time Donald thinks things are not going in his direction, he claims whatever it is, is rigged against him. The FBI conducted a year-long investigation into my e-mails. They concluded there was no case; he said the FBI was rigged. He lost the Iowa caucus. He lost the Wisconsin primary. He said the Republican primary was rigged against him. Then Trump University gets sued for fraud and racketeering; he claims the court system and the federal judge is rigged against him. There was even a time when he didn’t get an Emmy for his TV program three years in a row and he started tweeting that the Emmys were rigged against him,” Clinton said, laying bare his litany of being a sore loser.Trump responded to none of those instances Clinton mentioned, except the one about his TV show.
“Should have gotten it,” he interjected about his reality TV show Celebrity Apprentice not getting the US TV Oscars that are called the Emmys.(AP)
