On Wednesday during a CNN town hall in New Hampshire hosted by CNN, former President Donald Trump had to answer a number of questions regarding the 2020 presidential election, the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack, and the upcoming 2024 election.

During his remarks, Trump told host Kaitlan Collins that it was obvious to everyone that it was “rigged” and added that it was a “shame” that they needed to proceed with the results. Collins proceeded to question him on whether he would be willing to acknowledge that he had lost the presidential election publicly, to which Trump stated falsely that there is video evidence of ballots being stuffed into the boxes.

Trump and Collins’ exchange became particularly heated especially when the two were discussing Trump’s call to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger during which he asked him to “find” the necessary votes to win the election. Trump defended himself and his actions.

An undeclared voter then proceeded to ask if, in his third presidential run, he was considering putting behind the talk about election fraud. Trump replied that he would suspend references to it unless he sees such “fraud” again.

Collins also ventured to ask Trump whether he would be accepting the results of the 2024 presidential election, especially following his reaction to the 2020 presidential election results.

Trump stated that he would accept the 2024 presidential election results only if he believes it is an “honest election” with no voter fraud.
