President Donald Trump on Tuesday renewed his criticism of the recently enacted set of election reforms in Georgia, saying the new law failed to eliminate no-excuse mail-in voting and did away with signature verification, among other issues.
“Georgia’s election reform law is far too weak and soft to ensure real ballot integrity! Election Day is supposed to be Election Day, not Election Week or Election Month. Far too many days are given to vote. Too much ‘mischief’ can happen during this very long period of time,” Trump said in a statement released through his Save America political action committee.
Governor Brian Kemp and Georgia Secretary of State should have eliminated no-excuse, widespread mass Mail-In Voting, gotten rid of the dangerous and unsecure Drop-Boxes, and should have kept and EXPANDED Signature Verification to do matches against the historical voter file, among other things! Hope the RINOs are happy,” Trump said, using the acronym for Republicans in name only.
“Kemp also caved to the radical left-wing woke mob who threatened to call him racist if he got rid of weekend voting. Well, he kept it, and they still call him racist!” Trump added.
Kemp has defended the law from attacks from the left but has not publicly responded to criticism from Trump. Kemp’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
