"The Election That Could Break America”: Inside How Trump & GOP Could Steal the Vote

As President Trump refuses to commit to accepting the results of the upcoming election, Democracy Now! speak to Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Barton Gellman, whose latest piece in The Atlantic looks at how Trump could subvert the vote, election results, and stay in power even if he loses to Joe Biden.

“Trump’s strategy is never to concede. He may win, he may lose, but under no circumstances will he concede this election,” says Gellman.

“That’s a big problem, because we don’t actually have a mechanism for forcing a candidate to concede, and concession is the way we have ended elections.”
