Speaking with reporters, the outgoing president accused Raffensperger, without evidence, of making some kind of “deal” with the Democrat Stacey Abrams to allow vote harvesting in Georgia and said the state had a “fraudulent system.”

“You’re not allowed to harvest, but I understand the secretary of state, who is really an enemy of the people, the secretary of state, and whether he’s Republican or not, this man, what he’s done, supposedly he made a deal and you’ll have to check this, where she is allowed to harvest but in other areas they’re not allowed,” Trump said.

Abrams has been credited with helping register 800,000 people to vote in Georgia for the 2020 election, but that is not the same as ballot harvesting, in which a voter completes an absentee ballot and gives it to another person to hand in to a polling station.
