Yesterday, the Washington Post leaked snippets of a phone call between President Trump and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. Although other folks were on the line during this discussion, the released snippets let listeners hear Trump discussing with Raffensperger issues with Georgia’s management of the 2020 election.

The leaked phone call on Sunday is all over the media as of now. Furthermore, Democrats are railing against the released snippets, claiming that they warrant criminal charges against Trump.

Earlier this morning, Raffensperger criticized the president during an interview with ABC News, according to Newsmax.

Raffensperger on Trump and the 2020 Presidential Election

While interviewing with ABC News, the Georgia secretary of state dismissed concerns that Trump brought up yesterday. According to Raffensperger, the 45th president is “just plain wrong” and suffering from “bad data.”

After making these claims, the GOP Georgia secretary of state explained that he and his people did more listening than talking. Raffensperger then told ABC News that Trump is wrong about hundreds of dead people voting; later on, the Georgia secretary of state claimed that only two dead Georgians cast ballots in the 2020 presidential election.

The remarks from the Georgia secretary of state come as the president has criticized Peach State leaders for their management of the 2020 election.

Concerns About Cheating in the 2020 Presidential Election

This morning, Raffensperger continued to claim that Georgia election officials have “debunked” theories about voter fraud. The Georgia secretary of state then explained that “truth matters” and that votes which Trump is looking for simply don’t exist.

Raffensperger told ABC News that election officials in his state are mandated to “follow” the law and the process. He then asserted that all actions carried out by election officials are in keeping with Georgia state law, the Georgia Constitution, and the U.S. Constitution.

Later today, President Trump is going to be in Georgia to hold a rally in Dalton, Georgia. The purpose of this rally is to get Republicans to the polls tomorrow to vote for Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue.

Early voting data in Georgia already shows that more Democrats voted early than Republicans; therefore, the importance of high turnout for Perdue and Loeffler tomorrow is more critical than ever.
