Republican U-S presidential nominee Donald Trump has said he’s concerned the upcoming general election in November “is going to be rigged.”
The businessman made the comment on Monday during a speech in Ohio, where he also called his rival Hillary Clinton “the devil.”
It’s been a rough week for Trump following his controversial comments about the Gold Star parents of a Muslim soldier killed in Iraq.
Following an emotional speech at the Democratic National Convention by the parents of 27-year-old army captain Humayun Khan, who died in a suicide bombing, Trump claimed to have made sacrifices equal to their son.
During Monday’s town hall in Columbus, Trump expressed fears that his opponent would manipulate the results of the election.
“I’m afraid the election is going to be rigged, I have to be honest,” he said, without elaborating.
Later that day, Trump also escalated his insults against his Democratic opponent.
He referred to the former secretary of state as “the devil” during an address in a high school gym in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania.
Trump argued that Bernie Sanders made a deal with the devil, explicitly saying “she’s the devil.”
He touched on a number of topics during the speech, including free trade agreements and waterboarding. When discussing the threat of ISIS, Trump said, “They can chop off heads, they can drown people, they can bury you in sand and we can’t waterboard,” adding that in his opinion “we’re not playing on a level playing field.”
