Hillary Clinton And Donald Trump Roast Each Other At Al Smith Dinner

TrumpBookReport Trends on Twitter As People Imagine Donald Trump's Take on the Classics

"Well, I will tell you that was the third and last time I will ever have to debate Donald Trump".

Donald Trump's presidential campaign doubled down on the GOP nominee's debate suggestion that he would only accept the outcome of the November election if he wins, sending out two versions of his controversial pledge Thursday. Keith Kellogg, a retired Army lieutenant general, accused the media of "splitting hairs" and insisted that Trump was "not threatening democratic norms", while former New York Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani argued that any Republican would be "stupid" to accept the integrity of results before they are known. "I didn't think he'd be OK with a peaceful transition of power".

Campaign officials stress they are not taking the outcome of the election for granted. "A concession isn't just an exercise in graciousness".

And despite Mr Trump's repeated warning of impending, widespread voter fraud, no evidence supports his claim, with plenty of evidence to the contrary. His top advisers and running mate Mike Pence have tried to soften his comments, only to watch helplessly as he plunges ahead.

"I wasn't really sure if Hillary was going to be here tonight, because I guess, you didn't send her invitation by email, " Trump said. "But if the mandate is clear, I don't think many people will follow him", said Virginia Sen.

Trump focused some of his criticism on Michelle Obama, who has emerged as one of the most effective voices for Clinton.

Trump and Clinton sat with just one seat between them at the formal dinner in NY, with the aftermath of the debate in Las Vegas lingering.

IL and Iowa authorities say there are safeguards in place to ensure that the type of widespread election rigging Trump has warned about is virtually impossible.

Campaigning Thursday in must-win Ohio, Trump tried to make light of the situation. He refused to say that he would respect the results of this election. The candidate was defiant and would not back away from his position, telling a roaring crowd Thursday in OH that he would accept the results "if I win" - and reserving his right to legally challenge the results should he fall short.

On Friday, he only made a brief reference to the accusation during his speech in North Carolina, one of the battleground states where the election might be decided.

Yet numerous Republican leaders concede Trump is heading for defeat barring a significant shift in the campaign's closing days.

"The landscape has gotten a lot tougher for Republicans in the House", said Liesl Hickey, a Republican strategist involved some of those races. Not until a month after the voting did the U.S. Supreme Court finally settle the matter. The campaign is spending $2 million in advertising and toying with sending Clinton herself there before Election Day.

But he said Trump certainly has his reasons for claiming the election could be rigged. He referred to reports that Democratic operatives with no direct connection to the Clinton campaign hired people to violently disrupt Trump events.

Trump also said he believes that the women who have accused his father of sexual misconduct are part of a coordinated attack by Democrats. It contained the wording of a death penalty question that Brazile suggested Clinton would be asked.

That same year, Vice President Al Gore touted his campaign trail ability to weave in stories "of real people in the audience and their everyday challenges".

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, in the midst of a fiery election cycle, traded barbs at the annual Al Smith charity dinner in NY on Thursday.
