Kamala Harris says Trump’s call to Georgia Secretary of state is ‘bold abuse of power’


The US vice-president-elect said a phone call made by Donald Trump to Georgia’s secretary of state in which he asked to reverse his 3 November election defeat is a ‘bold abuse of power’. Speaking at a rally in Savannah on Sunday, Harris said the call was ‘the voice of desperation’. The Washington Post obtained the recording of a conversation on Saturday between Trump and Brad Raffensperger.
