Donald Trump has declined to commit to a peaceful transfer of power should he lose the election on the 3rd of November. The Guardian reports that former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney says a president not committing to the transfer is unacceptable. During a surreal press briefing, the US president answers questions about a possible Democratic victory by saying there won’t be a transfer of power, there would be a continuation. The Democratic leader in the Senate, Chuck Schumer, equated Trump’s refusal to commit to a transition to the actions of a dictator.
