US President Donald Trump has refused to confirm his readiness for a peaceful transfer of power in the event of a loss in the November 3 elections to Democratic candidate Joe Biden.
“We’ll see what happens,” the president said in response to a journalist’s question at a press conference at the White House on Wednesday.
“I have very serious complaints about the ballots, and these ballots are a disaster,” he added.
Trump has repeatedly predicted massive fraud with tens of millions of mail-order ballots, which Democrats have encouraged in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.
“We want to get rid of these ballots,” the president continued, adding that in this case, “to tell the truth, there will be no transfer of power, but its continuation”.
After Biden arrived in Delaware on Wednesday night, he was asked to comment on Trump’s words.
“What country are we in?” The former vice president asked, adding that he was “just kidding.”
“Look, he says the most irrational things. I don’t know what to say, ”he said.
