President Donald Trump turned to Twitter Friday morning to respond to criticism from Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker about Trump’s claims about mail voting and the refusal to commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he loses this fall’s general election.

Trump call Baker an “RINO,” an acronym for the term “republican by name only”

Trump reiterated his criticism of mail-order voting, which he says has led to widespread fraud. Neither Trump nor his campaign has published evidence to show that fraud has occurred.

The tweet came a day after Baker defended the mail vote that included harsh criticism of Trump’s refusal to commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he loses to Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.

“A big part of this nation’s appeal, to the extent it exists, is the peaceful transition of voting-based power from the people of this country,” Baker said Thursday. “Mail voting has been with us forever, and that peaceful transfer of power is what the people of this country trust when they are going to vote.”

When asked Wednesday if he would commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he loses the election, Trump said, “Well, we’re going to have to see what happens. You know I’ve been complaining very loudly about the ballot, and the ballots are a mess.”

He added: “We will want to have – get rid of the ballots and you will have a very – we will have a very peaceful one – there will be no transfer, frankly. There will be a continuation.”

Trump has frequently criticized mail voting, but Baker said it worked extremely well in the September primary, with a record turnout in Massachusetts.
