President Donald Trump blamed Gov. Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger Tuesday for allowing video footage for over 180,000 cast ballots to remain missing.
In a blistering statement, the 45th president urged Americans to vote the two Georgia Republicans out of office for failing to ensure the 2020 presidential election was secure.
Trump warned Americans on Truth Social ahead of Georgia’s primary elections, “FOR ALL GEORGIA VOTERS, THIS JUST OUT: 102 Georgia Counties CAN’T PRODUCE DROP BOX VIDEOS FOR THE 2020 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.”
“Thus,” Trump said, “video monitoring is missing for 181,507 cast ballots, approximately 18 times more than I need to have won the election in Georgia.”
In the bitterly fought 2020 presidential election, the state of Georgia certified electors for Joe Biden despite evidence of widespread voter fraud.
Trump also explained, “A total of 1.7 million images were destroyed- not allowed!” Without the ballot images and the drop box video footage, Trump has pointed out that American citizens cannot be confident in the security of U.S. elections.
Revelations like this have made election integrity a central element of the America First platform for the midterm elections.
Trump has been consistent in blaming issues of voter fraud on Georgia’s governor and secretary of state. He wrote, “This is the Fault of Governor Brian Kemp & Secretary of State Brad R.” He also added, “VOTE THEM OUT OF OFFICE ON TUESDAY!”
Despite Trump’s warning, both Republican incumbents will remain in their positions and face off against their Democrat opponents in November.
