– Donald Trump is still insisting that he won the U.S presidential election
– A recent report suggests the U.S president called an official to insist on his victory despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary
– The U.S president continues to find ways to disprove the election officials say was won by Joe Biden
A report by time.com has revealed that President Donald Trump pressured Georgia’s Republican secretary of state, Brad Raffensperger to “find” enough votes to overturn Joe Biden’s win in the state’s presidential election.
According to the report, Trump repeatedly cited disproven claims of fraud and raising the prospect of “criminal offense” if officials did not change the vote count.
The report stated that the U.S president’s conversation with the official was recorded and has now been released.
The phone call was the latest step in an unprecedented effort by Trump to pressure a state official to reverse the outcome of the election he lost.
Details of the phone call revealed how Trump repeatedly argued that Raffensperger could change the certified results.
Trump has insisted he won the November 3 presidential election, despite losing the popular and Electoral College votes to his Democratic Party’s rival, Joe Biden.
In a tweet he posted via his personal Twitter handle on Friday, January 1, President Trump said he “won, BIG”, saying he will present “massive amounts of evidence” on January 6.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that President Trump, on Friday, December 18, 2020, expressed displeasure at the country’s Supreme Court.
The U.S president tweeted that he and the entire country were very disappointed in the apex court.
Trump’s outburst came days after the apex court rejected a lawsuit that sought to overturn Biden’s victory in the presidential election.
Recall that a media report had indicated that Trump threatened not to vacate the White House on inauguration day.
According to CNN, Trump made the threat when speaking with some advisers which made some of them alarmed.
However, a handful of people in the president’s circle doubt he will actually follow through on his threat.
