Donald Trump was forced Thursday to admit he would accept “clear” results of the Nov. 8 presidential election, after coming under intense criticism when he refused to endorse the legitimacy of American elections in his third and final debate with Hillary Clinton. “Of course, I would accept a clear election result, but I would also reserve my right to contest or file a legal challenge in the case of a questionable result, right?” Trump told supporters at a rally in Delaware, Ohio. Trump claimed he was asked “an unprecedented question” Wednesday night by moderator Chris Wallace of Fox News.

According to Business Insider, Fisker revealed a few additional details about the new car in a letter sent out to select members of the media.
