願賭不服輸?川普拒絕對和平政權轉移提出承諾Trump refuses to commit to a peaceful transition

U.S. President Trump refused to commit to a peaceful transfer of power after the November election, saying there won’t be a transfer, and there will be a continuation.

When asked about the issue by a reporter during a White House press briefing, Trump complained about the ballots, opposing states’ efforts to expand mail-in voting in response to the coronavirus.

The New York Times commented that Trump’s refusal to endorse a peaceful transfer was the latest example in which he cast serious uncertainty around the November election. Democrats are getting increasingly alarmed and worried that Trump might not accept the results if he loses.

美國總統川普又出狂言!在近期的記者會上,媒體詢問川普若是輸了選舉,是否願意和平移交政權?川普一點也不客套地說:不會有和平移交的問題,因為不會移交,他的政權會持續下去。

緊接著,川普再度抱怨郵寄投票,質疑其公正性,也反對郵政系統為因應新冠病毒而做的準備。

紐約時報就評論,川普拒絕和平轉移是一大警訊,因為這為11月大選的結果又多了更多不確定性,民主黨也擔心川普將不會願意承認敗選,並可能會不擇手段改變選舉結果。

Commit這個字,是承諾、做出保證的意思,儘管是一個及物動詞,但承諾的事物要用to來接,例句:

He didn’t commit himself to anything.
他沒有作任何承諾。

此外,commit也有做、犯(罪)的意思,例句:

I committed an error.
我犯了一個錯。

另外一個常用法,則是「撥出、用於」,例句:

I commit most of my time to work.
我把多數時間用於工作。
