Washington – US Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on Sunday said President Donald Trump’s phone call with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger showed a “voice of desperation” from the incumbent president.
According to The Washington Post, Trump urged fellow Republican Brad Raffensperger, the Georgia secretary of state, to “find” enough votes to overturn his defeat in an extraordinary one-hour phone call.
Harris said: “Have y’all heard about that recorded conversation?…Well, it was yes certainly the voice of desperation, most certainly that… It was a bald-faced, bold abuse of power by the president of the United States.”
In her speech, the Vice President-elect also slammed the president for calling the Georgia runoffs “illegal” and “invalid”, saying that he was suggesting that the people of Georgia were committing a crime.
“And I raise all this to remind us to ask a question always when we see these powerful people that are trying to make it difficult, trying to make it confusing, trying to invalidate our voice,” added Harris.
