Biden says Trump will step down if he loses election

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Wednesday (September 30) said “nobody is going to get in the way of our democratic process going forward” after President Donald Trump during a debate would not commit to accepting the election result.

“The American people are going to speak, they’re going to speak in large numbers,” Biden said during a visit to a heavy equipment operator training school in New Alexandria, Pennsylvania, where the Biden campaign announced the endorsements of the International Union of Operating Engineers and the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America.

The endorsements come as Biden, 77, took a train tour on Wednesday through Ohio and Pennsylvania, both “Rust Belt” battleground states where Biden is seeking to court the blue collar workers who defected from the Democrats in 2016. The latest Reuters/Ipsos poll of Pennsylvania gave Biden a slight advantage there.

Trump, 74, was in Minnesota – one of the few states his campaign is targeting that voted Democratic in 2016 – for a fundraiser before a Wednesday evening rally in Duluth.

The 90-minute debate on Tuesday triggered widespread criticism of Trump and, to a lesser extent, Biden. The Republican president repeatedly bullied Biden and questioned his intelligence, while the Democratic nominee called Trump a racist, a liar and the worst president ever.

The former vice president has held a modest but steady lead in national voter surveys for months, although opinion polls in the battleground states that traditionally decide elections show a closer contest.
