ITDC INDIA EPRESS/ ITDC NEWS President Donald Trump, a day after he said he would “fight like hell” to stay in the White House, has suggested voter fraud in Georgia Senate runoff elections. The state of Georgia, for the first time, elected Democratic representatives—Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock to the Senate. In a series of tweets, Trump said officials are “setting up” a “voter dump” against Republican candidates to get ahead in the final round of counting.
“Just happened to have found another 4,000 ballots from Fulton County. Here we go!” he tweeted. The tweet was flagged as “disputed” by Twitter. Trump, who had said that Vice President Mike Pence will “come through” and suggested that Pence might help overturn the election, had also amplified White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany’s misleading claim and implicit suggestion of electoral fraud.
Gabriel Sterling, a Republican who serves as Georgia’s voting system implementation manager, debunked Trump’s claims of voter fraud, of voter machines flipping votes, the Forbes reported. Sterling said, there is “no evidence of any irregularities” in the election. “We’ve seen nothing widespread, we’ve seen nothing that seems real in any way, shape or form, honestly,” he said, adding, that, these theories, “are incorrect and they undermine faith in the elections process.”
