White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Wednesday would not say whether

would accept the results of the November election if he is not declared the winner, adding to comments from the president in recent days sowing doubt about the outcome of the vote.

McEnany was asked twice about Trump's comments earlier this week in which he claimed that the only way he would lose in November is if the election is "rigged." She did not answer directly either time.

"The president believes he's done a great job for the American people, and that will show in November," she told one reporter, adding that Trump "believes that voter fraud is real," particularly with mail ballots. Experts have said there is scant evidence of meaningful fraud associated with mail voting.

“He wants a fair election, and he wants confidence in the results of the election," McEnany added.
