Donald Trump decided to have a little fun with the media’s “freak out“ over his refusal to confirm if he’d accept the election outcome because the process is rigged against him.
Speaking at rally Thursday in Ohio, the GOP nominee mocked the media — some have said the refusal was a “disqualifier” — much to the delight of his supporters.
“I want to make a major announcement,” Trump told the crowd. “I would like to promise and pledge to all of my voters and supporters and to all of the people of the United States that I will totally accept the results of this great and historic presidential election … if I win.”
The room exploded in cheers and laughter, as seen here:

On a more serious note, Trump said it was all about fairness.
“We want fairness in the election,” he told the crowd, according to Fox News. “This is having nothing to do with me, but having to do with the future of our country. We have to have fairness. … Don’t be naive, folks.”
