Trailing in the polls and alleging that the elections are “rigged,” Republican nominee Donald Trump, in the final presidential debate, said that he might not accept the results of the election if he loses. On this edition of Encounter, host Carol Castiel talks with William Galston, Senior Fellow in Governance Studies at the Brookings Institution, and Ben Domenech, publisher of The Federalist, about the implications of this unprecedented statement, which Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton called “horrifying,” and which Democratic and Republican lawmakers alike have roundly criticized.
