'We'll see what happens,' President Trump unable to give a definite answer on if there will be a 'peaceful' transfer of power after the election whether he wins or not.

President Trump won’t go quietly. Even in this epoch of acrid political disagreement, most people probably agree he’d be undignified in defeat. But that’s a far cry from his refusing to leave, which is the fear his foes use to stoke a preelection conflagration.

The latest fuel came when a reporter asked the president if he’d commit now to a peaceful transfer of power. It was asked three times, once with the preamble “win, lose, or draw.” Trump, as so often, responded, “We’re going to have to see what happens,” and repeated legitimate concerns about fraud with millions of mail-in ballots. Then, he began to say there’d be a peaceful power transfer, but checked himself and instead said, “There won’t be a transfer, frankly; there’ll be a continuation …”

President Trump was asked Wednesday if he would allow for a peaceful transfer. 'We'll have to see what happens,' he said, adding mail-in voting will be a 'disaster'. 'Get rid of the ballots and you'll have a very peaceful – there won't be a transfer frankly, there'll be a continuation,' he clarified.

President Trump was asked during a press briefing Wednesday evening if he would commit to a peaceful transfer of power after the November election Trump ' s refusal for a straight answer came the same day The Atlantic published an article titled 'The Election that Could Break America,' which

Cue outrage from Democrats and left-wing media, for whom it is axiomatic that Trump is a would-be tyrant. This seems a stretch. It is pretty clear Trump stopped mid-sentence because, like most pols, he did not want to muse publicly on the hypothesis that he might lose. And he cannot, of course, guarantee a sudden stop to left-wing violence (now raging in its fifth month) if he wins. He’s probably as sure as the rest of us that it will continue. Even Joe Biden suggests it.

Both campaigns have teams of hawkish lawyers to litigate anything that can plausibly be depicted as an irregularity in voting or the counting of an unprecedented volume of mailed ballots. Judges are even now changing the rules on the fly. Both sides are casting doubt on the integrity of the election, accusing the other of intending to steal it. Hillary Clinton advised Biden not to concede defeat “under any circumstances.” We are perhaps heading into a constitutional crisis lasting weeks, even months. We are back to the 2000 election, with the added delight of widespread rioting.

During the speech Trump also spoke about his work to reform prescription drug pricing by the pharmaceutical industry. While speaking about reducing drug prices by cutting out the middlemen, Trump dropped this line saying, “So, I have a lot of enemies out there.

Who will decide who wins? Let’s hope it’s clear on Nov. 3, but that seems unlikely. Then what? Probably legal battles ending in the Supreme Court. Trump says he’d accept the court’s ruling if it came to that. But that won’t satisfy the Left because he is almost certainly about to place another textualist justice, whom his enemies (certainly) and he (perhaps) expect to take his side.

Thus, our cover story this week, “Trump Bets Big on the Court,” in which Jim Antle lays out the contours of the titanic battle that will rage up to and beyond the election, and could decide the direction of the country not just for the next four years, but for a generation.

Karol Markowicz steps back (P.xv) from the election and argues that it’s a dog-and-pony show taking place on the tip of an iceberg. The great danger beneath the surface is an unprecedented brand of Leftist social disorder that, if left unchecked, will wreck America.

Battleground voters not buying Trump's tough talk on China, new poll shows

  Battleground voters not buying Trump's tough talk on China, new poll shows Voters in 12 battleground states see pandemics as a bigger concern than China, a new survey shows.Terrorism — long top of mind in the years after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 — has faded as a predominant concern. It has been usurped by worry about global pandemics, according to a survey by Democratic pollster Geoff Garin of voters in 12 states most likely to determine control of the White House and the Senate.

How does Trump accomplish this? Furthermore, President Trump can arrest and imprison all state and federal judges who have granted “aid or comfort” to insurrectionists by, for example, releasing But, having a gun will certainly straighten things out fast, and without shooting it, most of the time.

Trump ’ s White House setting for his speech obliterated the line separating the official business of governing and the partisan politics of campaigning. Large screens displaying the Trump -Pence campaign logo were planted on either side of the White House portico, and more than 1
