"Congressional Republicans gently pushed back Thursday against President Donald Trump’s refusal to commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he loses the November election.
Hill Republicans suggested in statements Thursday morning that this year’s election would be no different than previous ones and reiterated that the Constitution guarantees that whoever loses must cede the presidency. But no one condemned Trump directly by name, and they declined to weigh in on whether it was appropriate for the president to suggest he won’t leave office.
"The winner of the November 3rd election will be inaugurated on January 20th," said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. "There will be an orderly transition just as there has been every four years since 1792."
When asked whether he takes the president’s threat seriously, McConnell simply referred back to his tweet and said "it pretty well sums up how I feel about it.”"
