NEW YORK, November 8. /TASS/. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said on Tuesday he is not yet ready to say whether he will definitively accept the result of the voting in the November 8 presidential election in the US.
"I want to see what happens," Trump told Newsradio 610 WTVN on Tuesday morning. "You hear so many horrible stories and you see so many things that are wrong. So we’ll take a look," he continued.
"But certainly I love this country and I believe in the system, you understand that," the candidate added.
The issue of accepting the election results has been in the focus during the 2016 election campaign, as Trump repeatedly mentioned the possibility of a rigged election.
Under the US tradition, when the preliminary results of the voting become known, the winning candidate is to make a speech at his or her campaign headquarters, while the defeated candidate is to publicly recognize the defeat and congratulate the winner.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the campaign office of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton is getting ready to see Trump not recognizing the election outcome if defeated.
However, representatives of Clinton’s campaign believe renowned activists of the Republican Party will put pressure on Trump to accept the defeat if Clinton demonstrates a significant lead.
