US president Donald Trump has been recorded telling Georgia’s top election official to “find” enough votes to overturn the election result.
Mr Trump told republican secretary of state, brad Raffensperger in a recording released by the Washington post after threatening him, called for the extra 11,780 votes to be credited to him
The 11,780 extra votes Trump demanded would have given him a total of 2,473,634 votes in the state, one more than Mr Biden, who received 2,473,633 votes.
Mr Raffensperger is heard replying that Georgia’s results are correct.
Trump, however, insisted that he had won the election in Georgia and told Mr Raffensperger to say he had recalculated the votes.
Mr Raffensperger responded by telling Trump that the challenge he is facing is that the data he had is wrong
Congress is due to formally approve the election result on 6 January and Mr Biden, a democrat, is due to be inaugurated as president on 20 January.
