The votes are not in. The votes are not counted. But Donald Trump believes that if he loses, the election didn’t work and he’s prepared to throw out as many ballots as it takes to win.

When asked if he would respect the peaceful transfer of power on September 23rd, he replied with “Well, we’re going to have to see what happens,” Trump said. “You know that I’ve been complaining very strongly about the ballots, and the ballots are a disaster.”

Pressed further, Trump said: “We’ll want to have — get rid of the ballots and you’ll have a very — we’ll have a very peaceful — there won’t be a transfer, frankly. There’ll be a continuation.”

Donald Trump has said several things recently that could make on question whether he truly believes in the democratic process.

At a rally, he said “You can’t have this guy as your president,” Trump argued. “You can’t have — maybe I’ll sign an executive order, you cannot have him as your president.”

He then told supporters at an event in Nevada that after he wins in November, “we’ll negotiate, right? Because we’re probably — based on the way we were treated — we are probably entitled to another four after that.”

Perhaps the last two comments could be chalked up to playful banter with his loyal supporters but not accepting the results of an election would seem to violate his oath to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States” and “bear true faith and allegiance to the same”.
