Trump not ready to commit to election results if he loses

President Donald Trump has limited his comments on the virus recently and shifted his attention to his administration's efforts to revive the economy and attack Joe Biden.

WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump is refusing to publicly commit to accepting the results of the upcoming White House election, recalling a similar threat he made weeks before the 2016 vote, as he scoffs at polls showing him lagging behind Democrat Joe Biden. Trump says it's too early to make such an ironclad guarantee.

"I have to see. Look ... I have to see," Trump told moderator Chris Wallace during a wide-ranging interview on "Fox News Sunday." "No, I'm not going to just say yes. I'm not going to say no, and I didn't last time either." The Biden campaign responded: "The American people will decide this election. And the United States government is perfectly capable of escorting trespassers out of the White House."

Trump also hammered the Pentagon brass for favoring renaming bases that honor Confederate military leaders - a drive for change spurred by the national debate about race after George Floyd's death. "I don't care what the military says," the commander in chief said.
