"There will be a smooth transition, and I believe President Trump will have a very good inaugural," he told reporters.
- Leader McCarthy, the president has declined to commit to a peaceful transfer of power in the event that Biden wins in November, and I just wonder if you had any comments or any thoughts on that.
KEVIN MCCARTHY: There will be a very peaceful transition.
- Mr. Leader, what do you plan to do if President Trump refuses to engage in a peaceful transfer of power, if he loses the election.
KEVIN MCCARTHY: President Trump will peacefully come to be sworn in again. It'll be a smooth transition, regardless of the outcome. I'm concerned of what I'm hearing on the other side of the aisle. I'm concerned that the Democrat nominee--
KEVIN MCCARTHY: You asked me a question. If I may, I'll answer your question. The Democrat nominee, Hillary Clinton, has gone on television--
- She's not the Democratic nominee.
KEVIN MCCARTHY: The last time. The Democrat nominee from the last election, has gone on television advising the current Democrat nominee-- you don't see the current Democrat nominee, because he put another lid on it today. It would be nice to see Joe Biden come out. I-- I know you want to create a hypothetical, and that's good for you, but no questions, no qualms, no concerns. It's going to be peaceful. This nation is designed that way, this nation will have it that way, and that's exactly what will take place.
- So why won't he say that? Why won't the President say that if that's the case?
KEVIN MCCARTHY: It's exactly what the President said before. There's no concern. So let me put it all to rest for all of you. It'll be a smooth transition. No concern on the outcome. Yes? Anyone else?
