Trump says the election is 'rigged.' These elections actually were.
After first claiming the entire American political system is "rigged," Donald Trump now says the 2016 election is, too.
I'm afraid the election's going to be rigged. I have to be honest.
Trump told a rally in Ohio the election would be unfair.
For a large portion of the world, elections aren't free or fair. Here are a few examples of foreign leaders gaining power through sham elections.
In his first election since the death of his father, North Korea's Supreme Leader Kim Jong-Un was elected in 2014 to the Supreme People's Assembly by 100 percent of the voters.
Not a single ballot was cast against him.
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad won a third term in office 88.7 percent of the vote. The June 2014 election was the country's first multiple-candidate presidential race, but polling was only allowed in Assad's strongholds.
Raul Casto won a whopping 99.4 percent in the 2008 Cuban parliamentary election. He was the only choice on the ballot.
Egypt's former army chief was elected president in a landslide victory in 2014. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi secured 93.3 percent of the votes cast in an election where the main opposition group was barred from fielding a candidate.
One of Africa's longest serving leaders, Robert Mugabe was elected to a seventh term in office in 2013, amid claims of voter fraud. Western election monitors were barred from the polls.
