Donald Trump’s continuing refusal to commit to accepting the results of the upcoming election disqualifies him from holding the high office that he seeks. It is really that simple. There are a hundred issues on which one may agree or disagree with either presidential candidate. There are valid concerns about the character, honesty and even integrity that might be raised about either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. However, there is one issue on which there can be no debate and as to which there are not two sides: the duty of candidates for the office of president to accept the outcome of an election once the fanfare and the rhetorical fighting are all over. The acceptance of election results and the peaceful transfer of power are fundamental pillars that undergird our national democracy, our political life.
