President Trump on Wednesday refused to commit to a peaceful transition of power should he lose the election in November, saying he needs to “see what happens,” sowing doubt about the security of mail-in ballots.

“We’re going to have to see what happens, you know, but I’ve been complaining very strongly about the ballots. The ballots are a disaster,” Trump told reporters at a White House briefing when asked if he would commit to making sure there is a peaceful power transition. 

When pressed, Trump said there would be no need for a transition of power without mail-in ballots, suggesting he believes he would win the election without an expansion of mail-in voting during the pandemic. 

“Get rid of the ballots and you’ll have a very peaceful, there won’t be a transfer, frankly, there will be a continuation,” Trump said. “The ballots are out of control. You know it and you know who knows it better than anyone else? The Democrats know it better than anyone else.”

    Regarding Romney’s tweet: Yeah, wonderful, but if Trump loses and he refuses to leave by Inauguration Day, are you and your fellow lumps in congress prepared to take decisive action to remove the trespasser from the White House? I sure as hell hope you and your colleagues are prepared for what lies ahead because it won’t be pretty.
