‘ The people of Georgia are mad, the people in the nation are upset,’ Trump said on the call. ‘And there’s nothing wrong with saying, you understand, um, that you have actually recalculated.’
‘ Well, Mr. President, the difficulty that you have is, the information you have is incorrect,’ Raffensperger responded.
In what the Post referred to as an incoherent discussion loaded with ramblings of the president, Trump duplicated again and once again: ‘There’s no chance I lost Georgia.’
‘ There’s no other way. We won by numerous thousands of votes,’ Trump lamented.
The president tweeted soon after news of the call broke: ‘Sorry, but the variety of votes in the Swing States that we are talking about is LARGE and totally OUTCOME DETERMINATIVE!’
‘ Only the Democrats and some RINO’S would attempt disagreement this – even though they know it is true!’ he continued.
‘ The Swing States did not even come close to following the determines of their State Legislatures,’ he continued in a second tweet. ‘These States ‘election laws’ were made up by local judges & political leaders, not by their Legislatures, & are for that reason, prior to even getting to abnormalities & fraud, UNCONSTITUTIONAL!’
Throughout the call, the secretary of state rejected Trump’s assertions about the election, declaring he was depending on exposed theories– even as the president flattered, asked and threatened with vague repercussions.
At one point, Trump said Raffensperger was taking a ‘big threat’ by not acting to reverse the results.
Raffensperger also asserted in the call that Joe Biden’s 12,779-vote success in Georgia was fair and accurate.
Reports of the call follows Trump tweeted Sunday morning vaguely of the conversation, declaring Raffensperger ‘has no idea’ about what happened in the election.
‘I spoke with Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger the other day about Fulton County and voter fraud in Georgia. He was unwilling, or unable, to respond to concerns such as the ‘ballots under table’ fraud, tally damage, out of state ‘citizens’, dead voters, and more. He has no hint!’ Trump published.
He likewise tweeted alerting Republicans of prospective election scams in Georgia as two Senate overflows begin to identify control of the upper chamber.
‘Republican politicians in Georgia need to take care of the political corruption in Fulton County, which is rampant. The Guv, and his puppet Lt. Guv, have done less than absolutely nothing. They are a disgrace to the great people of Georgia!’ he tweeted in reference to the Republican governor.
