CNN host to Trump: ‘Inventing a conspiracy’ about election rigging is ‘no way to make America great’
CNN Money editor and Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter said on Sunday that Republican nominee Donald Trump’s attempts to undermine public trust in the fairness of U.S. elections is a threat to Democracy.
“Mr. Trump, think of your children,” Stelter said in a highly charged editorial segment. For Trump to resort to calling the election “rigged” and to convince his followers that the election is being stolen from them will ratchet up the already tense divisions in society and sow the seeds of political violence.
“America is great partly because everyone accepts the results of elections, for decades in the past and hopefully for decades to come. Inventing a conspiracy theory is no way to make America great again,” said Stelter.
