Washington, September 24 (RHC)-- U.S. President Donald Trump Wednesday refused to commit to a peaceful transfer of power after the election if he loses the vote to Joe Biden.  

Trump was asked about this during a White House press briefing.  When the reporter asked if he could be sure of a peaceful transferral of power, Trump said: “Well, we’re going to have to see what happens.  There won’t be a transfer, frankly.  There will be a continuation."

Earlier this week, Trump said he expects the November election to end up before the Supreme Court, saying that’s why he’s pushing the Senate to rapidly confirm a replacement for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died last week.

Meanwhile, The Atlantic magazine has revealed Republican Party officials are looking at ways to subvert the election process to ensure Trump stays in power.  One option would be to have Republican-led state legislatures claim the results of the election to be fraudulent, and then choose a slate of Republican electors to vote in the Electoral College regardless of the outcome of the actual vote.
