Former President Barack Obama resurfaced yesterday to warning Georgians of threats to the “fundamental principles of our democracy.” This warning comes after a day after an audio leaked of President Trump pressuring Georgia’s top election official to find 11,000 votes to overturn the election in his favor. Yeah right.
From The Hill:
“Tomorrow is Election Day in Georgia and the stakes could not be higher. We’re seeing how far some will go to retain power and threaten the fundamental principles of our democracy,” Obama, who has been campaigning in recent weeks to help bolster the two Democratic candidates in Tuesday’s Senate runoff elections, wrote in the first of a series of tweets.
“But our democracy isn’t about any individual, even a president—it’s about you,” he wrote before urging Georgia residents to utilize their “most powerful tool” as Americans and vote on Tuesday.
Obama did not mention Trump by name.
What are your thoughts on this?
