ELECTION/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “In 2016, it was bad enough when for months in advance of the election, the Republican nominee for president [Donald Trump] claimed falsely that the coming election would be rigged. Now, as president of the United States, he has said, and I quote: ‘The only way we’re going to lose this election is if the election is rigged.’ What kind of president talks like that? What kind of American leader undermines confidence in elections in his own country, as part of his strategy to hold power? This is extraordinarily dangerous to a free society and it stands to inflict lasting damage to our democracy.”
