Donald Trump has said repeatedly the 2016 Presidential Election is rigged, and by saying so he is accusing his own Republican party of vote rigging. How?

Each State, Territory and DC has a Secretary of State whose function during Presidential elections is to be in charge of the election in their State, Territory or District of Columbia. SoS’s are the guardians of the election.

Two key States in this election are Ohio and Florida. Both States have Republican Secretaries of State in charge of the election. In fact the number of Republican Secretaries of State is larger than Democrat Secretaries of State; Republicans = 29, Democrats = 25 (w/Puerto Rico PDP).

Mr. Trump, you’ll probably still say the election is rigged and may blame your own Republican Party for your loss in the election. But you are a businessman and you alone make decisions on running your business, which you’ve made clear many times. Like any true businessman you should also accept the responsibility for any losses in your business, and the responsibility of any loss in an election.
