(AP) Donald Trump’s eldest son says that his family will “respect the outcome” of a “fair election.”
Donald Trump, Jr. told CNN’s New Day Tuesday that he thinks his father “will remain involved somewhat” if he loses the election. He said he hopes that the energy surrounding his father’s campaign “goes back to the people we are trying to fight for, the people who haven’t had a voice in a long time.”
He said, in retrospect, that “hopefully we shed some light on the process,” and enabled people to speak their minds freely, “without being put in some basket, without being boxed in a corner.”
Eric Trump says that his father will concede the election if he loses and the results are “legit and fair.”
In an Election Day interview with MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Donald Trump’s son said that “all we want is a fair fight, not just for this election but for all elections.”
The Republican presidential nominee has repeatedly warned of a “rigged election,” though there is no evidence of widespread fraud in the electoral system.
Eric Trump said, “we’ve seen states where a few thousand votes can make a difference.”
Pressed by MSNBC anchors, he said of his father, “if he loses and it’s legit and fair, and there’s not obvious stuff out there then without question, yes,” he would concede.
