Will Trump accept election results? He'll get back to you

In recent days, Donald Trump has blasted the election as "rigged" against him, raising questions of whether he would concede the race if he loses.

Moderator Chris Wallace put that question to him at Wednesday's debate in Las Vegas.

“I will look at it at the time," Trump said, a departure from what many of his top supporters, including running mate Mike Pence and daughter Ivanka, have argued the GOP nominee would do if he loses.

“What I’ve seen is so bad," Trump said of the campaign, training his fire on the media, which he called "dishonest" and out to poison the "mind of the voters."

As for his opponent, Hillary Clinton, Trump said: "She shouldn't be allowed to run," citing her use of private emails while secretary of State, among other things.

"It's rigged," he said of the election. When pressed again about whether he'd accept the election result, Trump said: “I will tell you at the time. I will keep you in suspense.”

Clinton, in response, called Trump's position "horrifying," blasting the GOP nominee as railing that anything that wasn't going his way was "rigged" — from GOP primaries that he lost to the FBI investigation that recommended charges shouldn't be filed against her.

She even mentioned his complaints about not receiving Emmys for his reality show, to which Trump interjected that he "should've gotten it," drawing a few laughs.

As for Trump's reluctance to commit to accepting the outcome of the election, Clinton said: “He’s talking down our democracy. And I for one am appalled."
