White House says Trump will accept results of November election  

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Donald Trump will accept the results of the Nov. 3 presidential election, the White House said on Thursday, a day after the Republican president drew criticism for refusing to commit to accepting those results.

"The president will accept the results of a free and fair election," White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said at a news briefing when pressed on Trump's comments on Wednesday, which prompted fellow Republicans in Congress to convey support for a peaceful transition of power.

The U.S. Treasury Department on Monday slapped counterterrorism sanctions on key players in Iran's oil sector for supporting the Quds Force, the elite paramilitary arm of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. The move, just before the Nov. 3 U.S. election, followed sanctions on 18 banks in Iran that Washington imposed earlier this month.

He hosted a nighttime ceremony on the White House lawn to swear in Justice Amy Coney Barrett in a virtual do-over of the superspreader event blamed for infecting multiple people with the coronavirus a month ago to the day, including the president himself, who was forced...
