White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany is facing backlash for refusing to say President Donald Trump would accept defeat in November.

McEnany was asked on Wednesday whether Trump would accept the results of the 2020 election if he was defeated by his rival Joe Biden, but she refused to directly answer the question.

“The president has always said he’ll see what happens and make a determination in the aftermath,” the press secretary said.

Former GOP congressman Joe Walsh said the statement was “tantamount to an act of war by a President against his own country.”

“This is so scary,” said Michael McFaul, who served as the United States Ambassador to Russia from 2012 to 2014.

Joe Biden ridicules Trump as a crybaby in parody debate video

Published

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Wednesday posted a video that satirized Tuesday night's presidential debate by portraying President Donald Trump as a crybaby.

The video took a clip from the debate in which Trump complained to moderator Chris Wallace about supposedly being treated unfairly and then superimposed a crying emoji over the president's head.

For good measure, the video also added audio of a crying infant in the background to make the point that the president was acting like a baby.

The clip ends with Biden saying to the president, "Will you shut up, man?" and then asks Americans if they've "had enough" of the president's behavior.

A polite and respectful exchange of thoughtful position papers?
