Incumbent U.S. leader Donald Trump has called on the vice governor of Georgia, one of the key U.S. states in the presidential election, to recount the votes in his favor.
It is noted that this is evidenced by a recording of the conversation between the head of the White House and Brad Raffensperger. The conversation was also attended by the legal adviser to the Lieutenant Governor Ryan Germainy.
According to the publication, Trump talks about misconduct and sharply criticizes Raffensperger. In at least one instance, the American leader’s words sound like a threat. “You know what they did and you don’t report it. It’s a crime, a felony, you can’t let that happen, it’s a big risk to you and to Ryan, your lawyer. I just want to find 11,780 votes because we won,” the president claims.
On November 20, the results of a recount in the state of Georgia of votes cast in the U.S. presidential election confirmed the victory of Joe Biden, the Democratic candidate for president of the United States.
On November 3, 2020, the next U.S. presidential election was held. The vote count and proceedings are still ongoing. According to media estimates, Biden won the number of electoral votes necessary for victory, thus beating the incumbent U.S. leader Donald Trump. The Democrat has already declared himself the elected president of the United States. Trump, in turn, said that Biden rushed to call himself the new leader of the country.
