Trump again claims election is being rigged
WASHINGTON - Donald Trump is claiming that "this whole election is being rigged."
Trump, speaking Friday in North Carolina, repeated his incendiary claim that the November election was not being conducted honestly. That's an unprecedented assertion that challenges America's tradition of peaceful democracy.
The Republican nominee said "the process is rigged" and declared that "the whole thing is one big fix."
Trump also again blasted the media, claiming the coverage of him has been biased. His latest target was Carlos Slim, the Mexican billionaire who owns a share of The New York Times.
Trump declared in Greensboro that "we can't let" Slim influence the election. Trump has also threatened to sue The New York Times over a story featuring two of the women who have accused him of sexual assault.
Trump is accusing the media of fabricating stories about a slew of women who have made similar accusations in recent days. Trump says the stories are lies.
