Donald Trump Complains of 'Rigged' Election

Roughly three weeks before Americans go to the polls, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is telling supporters that the election is “rigged” against him.

“The election is absolutely being rigged by the dishonest and distorted media pushing Crooked Hillary - but also at many polling places – SAD,” Trump posted on Twitter Sunday.

Should Trump lose to Democrat Hillary Clinton on November 8, it remains to be seen whether he would concede or claim that the election was stolen from him.

If he refuses to deliver a concession speech, Trump would break with a time-honored tradition in American politics.

“I have just called President Obama to congratulate him on his victory,” said 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney on election night four years ago.

Even in 2000, after the most hotly-contested election result in modern U.S. history, Democrat Al Gore conceded to Republican George W. Bush once the Supreme Court halted vote recounts in Florida, handing Bush a miniscule margin of victory.

“I spoke with George W. Bush and congratulated him on becoming the 43rd president of the United States,” Gore said in nationally-televised remarks. “I accept it.”

As is also customary, Gore called for national unity after a hard-fought and bruising campaign.

“I also accept my responsibility,” Gore said, “to honor the new president-elect and do everything possible to help him bring Americans together in fulfillment of the great vision that our Declaration of Independence defines and that our Constitution affirms and defends.”
