Trump says Georgia’s new election bill should’ve been passed before the 2020 presidential election
“Too bad the desperately needed election reforms in Georgia didn’t go further,” Trump said in a statement.
Former President Trump is supporting Georgia’s recent enacted election-reform laws but says the measure should go further and should’ve been in place before 2020 presidential election.
In a statement Monday, Trump called the bill recently signed into law by Republican Gov. Brian Kemp a “watered down” version of an election bill Trump would have preferred.
“Too bad the desperately needed election reforms in Georgia didn’t go further, as their originally approved bill did,” Trump said. “But the governor and lieutenant governor would not go for it. This bill should have been passed before the 2020 Presidential Election, not after.”
Trump lost the election in part because he failed to win Georgia, a once reliable Red state.
State Republicans say the new laws expand voting and improve voting integrity through such changes as having a photo ID to vote by mail. Critics say the change limit voting, particularly for black residents. Kemp signed measure into law Thursday.
In the statement, Trump also said the law does not have the proper safety measures such as signature matching. And he suggested conservatives in Georgia should start to boycott all the companies that have decried the new voting laws, including Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines and Major League Baseball, which moved its 2021 All Star game from Atlanta to Colorado.
