Donald Trump calls Georgia Republican Governor Brian Kemp to pressure him for the change state election vote results.
President Donald Trump says he could have continued to run the country as a great president. It is still stuck because of the Republican governors of Arizona and Georgia.
Noting that Democrats are happy with the behavior of the governors of the two states, Trump said the Republican Party will remember that.
Trump calls Georgia Governor and pressure him before joining the Georgia election campaign yesterday, according to the Washington Post, CNN, and the BBC reports.
Trump called and said the governor should convene a special session of the state legislature. Asked to cancel the results of the state vote through a special session. Governor Brian Kemp has been asked to decide on the electoral vote through the state legislature.
There is no precedent in the history of the United States for a president to ask a state governor to change the outcome of a vote. According to media reports, the governor of Georgia has stated that he has no legal right to convene such a session.
I will easily & quickly win Georgia if Governor @BrianKempGA or the Secretary of State permit a simple signature verification. Has not been done and will show large scale discrepancies. Why are these two “Republicans” saying no? If we win Georgia, everything else falls in place!
CNN contacted Governor Brian Kemp’s office to discuss the governor’s conversation with President Trump. Cody Hall, a spokesman for the governor declined to say what the governor had talked to the president about.
President Trump is putting the Republican governor of the state in political trouble. Governor Kemp has repeatedly said that the state election board involved in the election did not find any evidence of fraud.
President Trump called for a hand count after the first count of Georgia’s votes. There was no change in the election results even in the two-point count.
Now Trump is demanding that the signatures of every ballot that comes in the mail be checked. “People have signed many ballots with the same ink,” he said in an election campaign speech in Georgia. Dead people voted, illegal immigrants won the Democrat candidate by voting, he noted.
He is pushing for a state legislative session to be convened by canceling the state results. Governor Doug Ducie has similarly said he has no evidence of vote-rigging in his state. He is also not responding to the call for a special session of the state legislature to change the results of the vote.
President Trump addressed a campaign rally for Georgia senators on November 5. He has spoken out against the governors of Georgia and Arizona on Facebook and Twitter all day.
Trump was present at the speech in Georgia with First Lady Melania Trump. Raising the false claim of electoral fraud, he said that America would enter the socialist era through the Democrats.
Addressing the people, Trump said, “You have to decide whether the children will live in an independent society or not.”
Addressing his cheerful supporters, Trump said, “If I lose the election, I will move to Florida.” Addressing the people of Georgia, he said, “You will never accept what the Democrats stole.”
Georgia’s two Senate seats are up for re-election. Under state law, a candidate must be re-elected if he or she does not receive the majority of the total votes cast.
In the Nov. 3 election, Republican and Democrat candidates in each of the state’s two Senate seats were very close. Candidates from both parties did not get majority votes. Georgia is set to go to the polls on January 5 for two Senate seats.
These two Senate seats are now crucial to the balance of power in Washington. If the Democrats win both seats, the two parties will have equal seats in the Senate.
