Republicans have mostly shrugged off Trump’s comments. Sen. Chuck Grassley, an Iowa Republican and the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, pointed out Hillary Clinton’s advice that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden should not immediately accept the outcome of the election.

“There will be a peaceful transition,” said House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, a California Republican, as he predicted a Trump victory. “I hope you are asking Hillary Clinton the same question.”

Pelosi compared Trump to a dictator.

“He admires Putin. ... He admires Erdogan and Turkey. He admires people who are perpetuating their roles in government,” Pelosi said.

But McCarthy said there would be no fight over the White House no matter who wins.

“Let me be clear. It’s going to be peaceful,” McCarthy said. “It’s going to be a smooth transition, just has it has been every time before. No concern on the outcome.”
