Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump still sounds like he might not accept the outcome of the election, based on Election Day radio interviews.

In two interviews highlighted by CNN’s K-File, Trump sounded like he would “keep you in suspense,” as he said in a debate in October.

“So, no, if I think everything’s on the up and up, that’s a lot different, and we can only see what happens,” he told Tampa, Florida, station WFLA. “I hope it’s going to be very fair, I think we’re going to do very well,” Trump said.

In another interview with Columbus, Ohio, station WTVN, Trump again indicated he would wait and see, depending on the vote. 

“I want to see what happens, you know, how it goes as per our previous little chat,” he said. “You hear so many horrible stories and you see so many things that are wrong. So we’ll take a look. Certainly I love this country and I believe in the system, you understand that.”
