The Donald: "Hillary Got The Debate Questions in Advance"

Meanwhile, Donald Trump Announces the Next Morning He Will Accept the Election Results


October 24, 2016

Donald Trump tweeted Thursday morning yet another conspiracy theory: Hillary had the answers in advance of last night's debate.

"Why didn't Hillary Clinton announce that she was inappropriately given the debate questions- she secretly used them! Crooked Hillary." 7:56 AM - 20 Oct. 2016.

Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump, let his last best chance to become president pass him by last night, ways Ben White of Politico. In an article entitled "240 years of Democracy vs. Donald Trump," he says that by refusing to accept the results of an election that had not yet taken place and in which the polls say he is very behind, he lost the election. He marked himself as too risky to voters who dislike Hillary, but regard Trump as too great a risk.

Republicans have been conducting extensive polling to gauge what impact Trump’s tanking fortunes are having on House and Senate candidates. While many candidates have taken a hit since the release of the bombshell “Access Hollywood” tape, party operatives maintain that the bottom hasn’t completely fallen out and that a down-ballot landslide isn’t necessarily in the cards.

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton is planning trips to reassure foreign leaders, some of whom already don't like her, that the US is still a reliable ally.

Conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer said last night that while Trump had done reasonably well, by saying anything other than "yes, I will accept the will of the voters," he marked himself as a candidate out of touch with over 200 years of American democracy.

During that third and final presidential debate, moderator Chris Wallace made clear that he had not shared his questions ahead of time.

"For the record, I decided the topics and the questions in each topic. None of those questions has been shared with a commission or the two candidates," the Fox News anchor said, according to a transcript of the event.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump said Thursday morning, that he would in fact accept the election results. At a rally in Delaware, Ohio, Republican presidential nominee Donald J. Trump said he will accept the outcome of the Nov. 8 vote if it falls in his favor, reported the New York Times.
