US Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has cast doubt over the validity of the result of the November election.

Addressing his supporters in the city of Columbus, Ohio, on Monday, Trump warned that the upcoming presidential vote might be rigged.

“I’m afraid the election is going to be rigged,” he said. “I have to be honest.”

The billionaire businessman said he hears “more and more” that the November 8 vote may not be contested fairly.

He stated that the Republican primaries were slanted against him but his “landslide” victories helped him in overcoming the insurmountable “fixed” system.

“I think my side was rigged. If I didn’t win by massive landslides,” he said.

Trump made the remarks after suggesting that the Democratic Party had fixed its primaries to help Hillary Clinton defeat Bernie Sanders in the race for presidential nomination.

Background on this from Katehon:

The end of both parties' national conventions marks the beginning of the official nomination race between candidates from the Republicans and Democrats. For the first time in a long time, America has the opportunity to change its destiny through the anti-interventionism of Trump, which means a chance for the US and rest of the world. Or, it might continue down the path of the liberal globalism of Clinton, that means war against the rest of the world, which is tired of American hegemony.
