Trump demands GOP Georgia governor 'call off' election in new Twitter outburst

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump tweeted a new demand for Gov. Brian Kemp (R-GA) to "do something" and overturn the results of the election. Specifically, Trump wants him to "check signatures and count signed envelopes" and then "call off [the] election" because "It won't be needed" — presumably meaning call off the Georgia Senate runoffs because the "real" vote count would show Republicans won outright.


In reality, signature matching of mail-in ballots was in fact already done, the election has been certified for President-elect Joe Biden, and the governor does not have any authority to override the secretary of state or "call off" elections.
