On Thursday, Clinton participated in The 19th Represents Summit where she urged Democratic voters to be prepared for what she thinks will come as the countdown to the election continues. According to Clinton, Trump “is not going to go silently” if he loses the election.
“I don’t want to scare people, but I want you to be prepared. I have every reason to believe that Trump is not going to go, you know, silently into the night if he loses,” Clinton said.
She continued, “He’s going to try to confuse us, he’s going to try to bring all kinds of lawsuits, he’s got his crony Attorney General [William] Barr ready to do whatever is necessary.”
The former U.S. Secretary of State was also asked if she would consider working in the Biden administration.
While she noted that she is “ready to help” in any way she can, she also admitted she is “not even gonna go there” right now due to focusing on the bigger challenge — getting presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) elected.
“I can’t even think yet about the administration. I’m ready to help in any way I can, because I think this will be a moment where every American — I don’t care what party you are, I don’t care what age, race, gender, I don’t care — every American should want to fix our country,” Clinton said.
She added, “So if you’re asked to serve, you should certainly consider that.”

During an interview with Fox News’ Chris Wallace, Trump was asked if he would accept the election results in the event he loses to Biden.
At the time, he said he would “have to see.”
