Trump: You might never know the election result – ‘maybe years but maybe never’

Donald Trump has claimed the result of November’s election may never be known, warning that “crazy Nancy Pelosi” could become president instead.

Mr Trump, who is behind Democrat rival Joe Biden in many polls, was speaking ahead of next week’s Republican National Convention.

He said: “You’re not going to be able to know the end of this election, in my opinion, for weeks, months, maybe never – maybe years but maybe never.

“There’s a theory that if you don’t have it by the end of the year, crazy Nancy Pelosi (Speaker of the House) would become president, you know that, right?

“No no, think of that, think of that – that mad theory too, you have heard that theory.

“Now I don’t know if it’s a theory or a fact but I said: ‘that’s not good’.”

Just hours earlier, former vice president Joe Biden vowed to end America’s “season of darkness” under Donald Trump as he accepted the Democratic presidential nomination.

In a speech to end the Democratic Convention in Delaware, Mr Biden said the US president had “cloaked America in darkness for much too long”, accusing him of creating “too much anger, too much fear, too much division”.
