Marco Rubio said Thursday that the USA government will swear in the President in January following a "fair election" after Donald Trump refused to say Wednesday if he would peacefully give up his seat in January if Joe Biden wins the election. The peaceful transfer of power between United States presidential administration is a hallmark of the country's stability.

However, fellow Republican, Senator Mitt Romney don criticise di president for tweet say "Peaceful transition of power dey fundamental or else we go turn Belarus".

"We're going to have to see what happens", Mr Trump said at a news conference, responding to a question about whether he would commit to a peaceful transfer of power.

"A refusal to accept a peaceful transition of power & a thinly veiled suggestion to "get rid of" legitimately cast votes". The ballots are out of control, you know it, and you know who knows it better than anybody else?

Back in 2016, Mr Trump also refused to commit to accepting the election results in his contest against the Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton, which she characterised as an attack on American democracy.

Trump tok as im bin ansa reporter on Wednesday on weda im go commit to peaceful transfer of power and e say "dia no go be transfer, im fact, na continuation go happun". Surveys showed tight races in a number of key battleground states, where the two rivals have made frequent campaign stops.

"What country are we in?"

Mr Trump has baselessly claimed widespread mail voting will lead to massive fraud.

During a White House event earlier on Wednesday, Trump said he believes the country's highest court would have to weigh in on the election. "Any thinking wey go make one president to no respect am dey unacceptable".

Trump's latest comments were widely denounced by Democrats as threatening the very nature of the nation's democracy.

But Graham's repeated suggestion on Fox that the Supreme Court could - when acting upon seemingly inevitable legal challenges to the election - end up all but declaring the victor came with an unspoken subtext: that the Senate was moving to confirm a Trump-appointed jurist to fill the vacancy left by Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death before the election, potentially stacking the deck for Republicans. "I don't know what to say".

'It may take longer than usual to know the outcome, but it will be a valid one, ' he continued, in a likely reference to mail-in ballots holding up the outcome.

"I have to see". Look you - I have to see.

Biden campaigned in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Wednesday.
