President Donald Trump was heard on an hour-long call with the Georgia Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger, to "find" enough votes to overturn his defeat on Saturday, January 2.

Trump was heard pressuring Raffensperger and other officials to look for enough votes in the state's presidential election so that he can be declared the winner, according to a shocking audio clip that was obtained by CBS News. During the call, Trump told Raffensperger, "All I want to do is this. I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have. Because we won the state."

The contents of the call were initially reported by The Washington Post that also published the audio. The White House chief of staff Mark Meadows also participated in the call. In the audio recording, Trump says, "The people of Georgia are angry, the people in the country are angry."

"And there's nothing wrong with saying that, you know, um, that you've recalculated," Trump added. Raffensperger who is a fellow Republican told Trump that "the data you have is wrong" and pushed back against Trump's suggestions. He also repeatedly told Trump that the election results were definitely accurate and called out Trump's claims.

Trump lost the 2020 elections to President-elect Joe Biden by 11,799 votes in Georgia. Ever since the November election, ballots cast in the state have been counted three times with Biden's win being confirmed all three times.

Trump's shocking call with Raffensperger shows his desperation to try and have the election results overturned. He has refused to accept the results especially in Georgia and has repeatedly slammed Raffensperger and Governor Brian Kemp who is also a Republican. Biden's victory has marked the first time in three decades where a Democrat has won the state. 

Many social media users were left outraged at the news of the audio clip and Trump's action. They took to Twitter to slam Trump and call him out for his audio call. One such user shared, "It just stinks of desperation He is a typical salesman, tells lies to sell you what he wants you to buy into, keeps talking, doesn't let you get a word in, tries to wear you down, if you dont bite, makes veiled threats that its a crime. The man is dangerous and needs to go."

Another wrote, "there are so many things wrong with this. The immoral, ethical issues and possibly legal issues are top of the list, but, the very state of mind of 45 is terrifying. He truly believes he won by a landslide If someone cared about him, they'd commit him before it's too late."

"That tape was WILD. These ppl are absolutely DELUSIONAL!!! I cant believe Trump talked for like 20 mins straight with no one else saying a word. And Brian calmly rejecting everything was LOL. There's no getting through to Trump, he's unhinged. He lives in a fantasy world!" commented another.



 

 



 

 



 

Yet another had written, "Phone conversation is absolute evidence of the demented, delusional state of the president of the US. He is desperate to stay in power & at this point will do anything to retain the oval office. The R’s have allowed this to happen. All complicit & all reprehensible. Disgraceful!"

Another user who echoed the same sentiments chimed in, "I guess madness is contagious. Is there anyone in his entourage capable of understanding how all this is totally crazy, desperate and criminal?"
