The United States of America Vice President-elect, Kamala Harris has slammed President Donald Trump’s call pushing Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to “find” votes to overturn the election results, a “bald-faced, bold abuse of power,” in Savannah, Georgia, on Sunday.
According to the report by CNN, Kamala Harris took the stage at a drive-thru rally campaigning for democratic Senate runoff candidates and addressed the crowd on the stunning Donald Trump’s call.
Trump assailed Raffensperger for refusing to falsely declare Trump the winner of the election in the Peach State.
“Have y’all heard about that recorded conversation?” Harris asked with cars honking in the audience. “Well it was, yes, certainly, the voice of desperation, most certainly that, and it was a bald, bald-faced, bold abuse of power by the President of the United States.”
Harris’ remarks were the first on-camera reaction from the incoming administration to the bombshell call obtained by CNN and first reported by the Washington Post on Sunday afternoon.
Earlier, Bob Bauer, a senior adviser to President-elect Joe Biden, in a statement said it, “captures the whole, disgraceful story about Donald Trump’s assault on American democracy.”
The soon-to-be-sworn-in Vice President tracked through Trump and other Republicans’ failed attempts to overturn the election on false allegations of widespread voter fraud — a charge that has been found to have no credible evidence.
“And then look at the most recent history, which is that after you elected, you turned Georgia blue, you elected Joe Biden President of the United States, you elected the first black woman in the history of our country to be the Vice President of the United States, and they have the gall to suggest you didn’t know what you were doing, you must have gone about it in a way that was illegitimate,” she said.
Harris also slammed Trump’s call and for calling the upcoming January 5 Senate runoff elections “illegal and invalid,” and that he was “suggesting that the people of Georgia are trying to commit a crime.”
These strong remarks came after Harris spoke about the importance of the Senate while on Instagram Live with artist and musician Janelle Monáe, defiantly stating that she would be sworn in, in just under three weeks, as Vice President no matter the attempts to obstruct or delay.
