Democratic presidential nominee Hilary Clinton referred to Donald Trump as a “sore loser” on Sunday after he refused to commit to accept the results of the general election on November 8th.
She referred to last week’s presidential debate, when Trump was asked if he would accept the result of the U.S. election and replied:
“What I’m saying is that I will tell you at the time. I’ll keep you in suspense. OK?”
Clinton told a rally at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte:
“He refused to say that he would respect the results of our election. Now, I have to admit when we were both asked the question I assumed he would say what everybody has always said which is hey, of course, you know because to say that you won’t respect the results of the election, that is a direct threat to our democracy. The peaceful transfer of power is one of the things that makes America, America.”
“And look, some people are sore losers, and we just got to keep going,” she added.
Clinton isn’t the first to publicly call out the Republican nominee, with Obama telling Trump last week to “stop whining” after his claim that the polls were “rigged” against him.
Earlier on Sunday Kellyanne Conway, a top Trump adviser, admitted that Trump was falling behind Clinton in the polls ahead of the election.
“We are behind,” Conway said on NBC’s Meet the Press. But she added the Trump campaign was looking to sway undecided voters not ready to support Clinton and that Trump’s campaign are “not giving up. We know we can win this.”
Speaking about his father, Eric Trump said on Sunday that his father will “absolutely accept” the result “if it’s a fair outcome. There’s no question about that.”
