As the Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump seems to have lost the battle after his debacle in the second debate, he is trying to find excuses to mask his probable defeat in the upcoming election.

He expressed his apprehension today by saying that the November election may be rigged, paving the way for his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton’s presidency.

He also continues to spew venom against Clinton by using his usual rough language: “Crooked Hillary!”

Referring to multiple allegations related to her secret emails and irregularities in Clinton Foundation, Trump tweeted today that Clinton should have been prosecuted and should be in jail; instead she is running for president in what looks like a rigged election.

He also believes that the American media has been conniving with Clinton to defeat him, although as usual Trump could not substantiate his claims against the media.

“This election is being rigged by the media pushing false and unsubstantiated charges and outright lies (against him), in order to elect Crooked Hillary!” Trump tweeted. “(These are) 100% fabricated and made-up charges, pushed strongly by the media and the Clinton campaign, may poison the minds of the American Voter. FIX!”

Although he did not specify, perhaps Trump was tweeting about his recent spat with The New York Times (NYT), which had published an article about Trump’s lewd conversation and sexual assaults on women.

On Thursday, NYT had responded to a letter from a Trump counsel who had asked the newspaper to remove the article from its website. However, NYT refused to remove the article.

Meanwhile, responding to Trump’s continuous use of foul language against the media, the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) said Thursday that the Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s presidency would represent a threat to press freedom.

The third presidential debate will happen on October 19 .The U.S. presidential election is scheduled to take place Tuesday, November 8, 2016.
