WASHINGTON – Sen. Mark Kirk R-Ill., slammed GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump on Thursday for not saying at last night’s debate with Hillary Clinton whether he would accept the results of the election.

Trump said he wanted to keep people in “suspense.” Clinton said that response was “horrifying.”

Kirk earlier cut ties to his party’s nominee.

In a statement Kirk said this is “another vivid example of why Donald Trump is unprepared and unfit to be commander in chief. Since the end of George Washington’s presidency in 1797, our nation has peacefully and smoothly transitioned power from one President to the next-it is one of the hallmarks of our democracy. Only someone as delusional as Donald Trump would believe he is the exception to this rule.”
