Donald Trump Jr. said on Tuesday that he expected his father to concede if “legit and fair” results showed that the Republican nominee lost to Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.
In an election day interview, MSNBC host Willie Geist reminded Donald Trump Jr. that his father had said for months that the election was “rigged.”
“Can you say here right now, if Hillary Clinton is a clear cut winner tonight in the Electoral College, your father will concede the election in a speech tonight?” the MSNBC host wondered.
“Of course,” Donald Trump Jr. insisted. “All we’ve wanted is a fair fight.”
Citing undercover videos by discredited conservative filmmaker James O’Keefe, the younger Trump suggested that Democrats may be using dirty tricks to steal the election from his father.
“You know, we just want a fair system,” he said. “Some stuff is going on. I don’t know if it’s enough to move elections. But we’ve seen states, you know, a few thousand votes can make a difference.”
Geist pressed: “If he loses, he will concede tonight?”
“If he loses and it’s legit and fair,” Donald Trump Jr. replied. “Without question, yes.”

Trump approves of North Korea missile tests: ‘I have no problem’ because they’re just ‘short-range missiles’
On Thursday, in conversation with reporters, President Donald Trump said that he had 'no problem' with North Korea's new round of missile tests.
"Short-range missiles, we never made an agreement on that," said Trump. "I have no problem, we'll see what happens, but these are short-range missiles. They're very standard."
The thought that short-range missiles would still be capable of hitting our allies in the region, like South Korea and Japan, does not seem to have occurred to him.

Beto O’Rourke calls for a ‘war tax’ in release of health care plan for veterans
The Democratic presidential candidate uses his eighth policy announcement to focus on an area that he prioritized in Congress.
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke on Monday morning released a plan to improve the lives of veterans, returning to an area of priority during his time in the U.S. House for his latest 2020 policy rollout.
In keeping with measures he supported in Congress, the plan calls for a "responsible end" to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — reinvesting $1 out of every $2 saved in veterans programs — and the creation of a Veterans Health Care Trust Fund for each future war. The fund would be paid for by a "war tax" on households without service members or veterans.
