>> Donald Trump doubling down on charges that the US Presidential Election is rigged. After suggesting that the media and many polling places are rigging the election. A 5:30 AM tweet on Monday from the Republican Candidate going even further saying quote Of course there is large scale voter fraud happening on and before election day.
00:00:21
Why do Republican leaders deny what is going on? So naive. The country's top Republican leader House Speaker, Paul Ryan, later on Monday saying, he's quote fully confident the states will carry out this election with integrity. Reuter's campaign correspondent Jim Oliphant.>> As we've seen with Trump, he tends to start talking about rig elections.
00:00:41
He did this, every time he's not doing well, the polls can't be trusted, the media can't be trusted, the election process can't be trusted. And when he's really done, people accused Trump of demagoguery. And the reason they do that is because what Trump does is hee sets himself up as the sole arbiter of what is, what can be trusted and what can't.
00:01:00
He tells his supporters you can't trust the government, you can't trust the media, you can't trust science. You can't trust state electors, basically what he is saying is that you can only trust him. And again, that's a message that actually can be quite destructive.>> Trump's campaign manager Kelly Anne Conway insisting that Trump is talking only about a rigged media and not the electoral system.
00:01:22
But that's not what it sounds like when Donald Trump encourages supporters to be on the lookout for voters cheating at the polls.>> So I hope you people can sort of not just vote on the 8th. Go around and look and watch other polling places and make sure that it's 100% fine.
00:01:42
>> Trump's comments raising concerns that he may not concede if he loses the general election. Running mate Mike Pence appearing on Meet The Press promised he and Trump would absolutely accept the will of the American people. Saying quote, the peaceful transfer of power is a hallmark of American history.
00:02:00
Trump did say at the first presidential debate he would accept the election results, but a few days later he told the New York Times quote, we're going to see what happens.
