Trump’s statement attacks fabric of our democracy

Donald Trump is not just mercurial but irresponsible with his unsupported assertion the 2016 presidential race is “rigged.” To make such a statement is detrimental to one of the cornerstones of our republic — free and fair elections — as it attacks the fabric of our democracy and fans the embers of civil unrest. His mindless posit reinforces why he is viewed by many as a popinjay and demagog.
