Trump Campaign Requests Formal Recount in Georgia

“President Trump and his campaign continue to insist on an honest recount in Georgia, which has to include signature matching and other vital safeguards.”


An audit of the Georgia election results found that Biden only “won” the election by 12,670 votes, which is only a quarter of a percent.

In the audit, 4 counties found about 900 uncounted ballots for President Trump.

This is prompting the president and his legal team to call for an official recount of Georgia’s votes. 

The president’s legal team is still embroiled in several lawsuits throughout the country hoping to expose more widespread voter fraud. 

This election is still far too close to call, despite what Democrats and submissive Republicans are claiming.

Fox News has more details on the formal request for a recount:

President Trump’s legal team Saturday formally requested a recount in Georgia -- a day after the state certified the election for President-elect Joe Biden.

In Georgia, a campaign has the right to ask for a recount when the difference between the candidates' vote tallies is within a half-percent.

“We are focused on ensuring that every aspect of Georgia State Law and the U.S. Constitution are followed so that every legal vote is counted,” the Trump 2020 Campaign said in a statement. “President Trump and his campaign continue to insist on an honest recount in Georgia, which has to include signature matching and other vital safeguards.”

The recount is expected to start next week, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Following a hand recount last week, Biden was declared the winner of the state's election by 12,670 votes, or a quarter of a percent.

President Trump gained nearly 900 votes after the first recount when stashes of uncounted ballots were found in four counties.

The first recount stemmed from a mandatory audit requirement and isn’t considered an official recount under the law.

State law requires that one race be audited by hand to ensure that the machines counted the ballots accurately, and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a Republican, selected the presidential race.

As reported, the vote difference is within the margin of error, which gives the president every right to ask for a recount.

Most Americans want to make sure that this election is indeed fair.

Supporters of President Trump gathered at the Georgia capital on Saturday for a "Stop the Steal" rally, demanding that the recount does take place.

The New York Post has that story:

President Trump’s supporters called for a recount of the election over the weekend outside the Georgia Capitol building — where they were met by scores of counterprotesters.

Hundreds of pro-Trump demonstrators gathered Saturday at the capitol building in Atlanta for a “Stop the Steal” rally in response to Georgia officials certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s win in the state, news station 11Alive reported.

“Stop the session!” crowds could be heard chanting in video posted to Twitter.

This election is not over until an honest and fair recount takes place.
