While speaking in Georgia yesterday, Joe Biden accused former President Donald Trump of attempting to subvert democracy by casting doubt on the Georgia election results during the 2020 Presidential Election.
“President Biden on Friday credited Georgia officials with helping to “save our democracy” by standing up to pressure from former President Trump and his allies over the 2020 election,” according to The Hill.
“Biden delivered remarks in Atlanta condemning violence and discrimination against the Asian American community after eight people, six of whom were Asian, were shot and killed there Tuesday evening. But he used the second half of his speech to credit Georgia with both securing his victory and delivering Democrats the majority in the Senate.
“The president took a thinly veiled swipe at his predecessor, who spent weeks challenging Georgia’s election results, making unproven claims of fraud and pressuring state officials to overturn the result… [emphasis added]
“‘This is a democracy. The right to vote is fundamental. The fact that there was a record turnout in America in the last election in the midst of a pandemic should be something we celebrate, not attack,’ Biden said in scripted remarks.
“‘The fact that you held a free and fair election in Georgia that stood up to recount after recount, court case after court case, is something you should be proud of,’ he continued. ‘The fact that your poll workers, your election workers, your volunteers, your local officials, your state officials, your courts stood up to the immense pressure with character and honesty and integrity helped save our democracy. And this country will long be grateful for it.'” [emphasis added]
