Clinton mocks Trump’s refusal to pledge to accept election results: ‘Some people are sore losers’

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton characterized her Republican rival, Donald Trump, as a sore loser Sunday when she argued during remarks in North Carolina that no presidential candidate in either party has ever refused to pledge to accept the results of an American election.

"To say you won’t respect the results of the election, that is a direct threat to our democracy," Clinton said. "The peaceful transfer of power is one of the things that makes America America.”

“It is not a joke,” she added. “And look, some people are sore losers, and we just got to keep going.”

During the third presidential debate, Trump refused to commit to abide by the results of the election, which he has charged is “rigged.”

“I will keep you in suspense, OK,” he said.

At a rally last week, Trump doubled down, telling supporters, “I would like to promise and pledge to all of my voters and supporters and to all of the people of the United States that I will totally accept the results of this great and historic presidential election — if I win.”
