"I have to be honest."


UPDATE 11:19 p.m.: At the end of his interview with Sean Hannity Monday night, Trump further discussed his concern that the November presidential election will be "rigged."

"And I'm telling you, November 8th, we better be careful, because that election's gonna be rigged," Trump told the Fox News host. "And I hope the Republicans are watching closely, or it's going to be taken away from us."

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said Monday he fears the November election will be "rigged."

"I'm afraid the election's gonna be rigged, I have to be honest," Trump said during a town hall gathering in Columbus, Ohio.

Trump prefaced his comment by saying the Democratic primaries were "rigged" to favor Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders and then added, "I think my side was rigged."

Trump then pointed to his wide margins of victory in the primaries — "if I didn't win by massive landslides" — apparently as what may have protected his vote totals, but he didn't comment further on the issue.
