US President Donald Trump on Wednesday, September 23, refused to guarantee that he will transfer power if he loses the US election in November.

When asked at a White House press conference whether he is committed to the peaceful handover of power upon a change of president, he responded: “Well, we’re going to have to see what happens.”
