On “Fox News Sunday,” the Indiana Republican dismissed Trump’s previous suggestions that he might not accept the election results if Democrat Hillary Clinton is the victor. “The campaign’s made it very clear — a clear outcome, obviously both sides will accept,” Pence told Fox News’ Chris Wallace.
Trump has frequently called the election “rigged” against him. And During the final presidential debate, Trump refused to commit to accepting the election results when pressed by Wallace. He later said he would in fact accept the results — if he wins.
Pence said Sunday that the Trump campaign — as well as Clinton’s — would still reserve the right to protest a disputed contest. “I think both campaigns have also been very clear that in the event of disputed results, they reserve all legal rights and remedies,” Pence said.
