Neil Cavuto requested Duncan on Fox Information, “Misinformation — you’re saying misinformation is coming from the president? I do know he’s disparaged some stuff you mentioned, what the governor mentioned, what the secretary of state has mentioned. You wish to make clear?”
Duncan answered, “Yeah, that misinformation is coming from each single angle, Neil, I bought to inform you, it’s disheartening, it’s undoubtedly not our best second. We proceed to get lots of if not 1000’s of items of misinformation flowing in virtually by the hour from people seeing one thing on Fb or Twitter and it takes ten seconds to debunk. The troubling half to me, Neil, is a lot is flying in beneath the premise of not rooting out fraud, however merely attempt to flip an election.”
Cavuto adopted up, “I assume what you’re referring to is that 1000’s of votes that went to him aren’t developing in these counts and recounts. Are you able to unequivocally state that’s not the case?”
The Lt. Governor replied, “Yeah, so we’re 4 weeks into this, 4 weeks into this. And now we have not seen the lawyer normal, the secretary of state, the investigators haven’t seen any indicators of systemic or organized fraud. And, Neil, I’ve to be trustworthy with you, as a Georgian, as a lieutenant governor of the state, I’m happy with that. Despite the fact that the man I voted for isn’t going to win Georgia, I’m proud we placed on a good, authorized election.”
Duncan didn’t shrink back when requested the place the misinformation was coming from. The explanation why high Georgia state officers are defending the integrity of their election is that they’re attempting to undo Trump’s efforts that are discouraging Republicans from voting in the Senate runoff elections.
Trump has no management over state officers, and it’s clear that in Georgia, they’ve grown uninterested in his baseless assaults.
Donald Trump is just hurting the Republican Celebration along with his ongoing assault on US election integrity.
