Trump Praised Senders of Death Threats to Georgia Officials as 'My People' [View all]



‘LACKING IN EMPATHY’

Trump Praised Senders of Death Threats to Georgia Officials as ‘My People’ as He Demanded Recount: Report

Raw Story, 6 September 2021

According to a report from the Daily Beast, as Donald Trump raged at Georgia election officials to find votes for him following his loss to Joe Biden in the 2020 election, state administrators were being deluged with death threats that led to calls to the White House pleading for the former president to call off the dogs.

The Beast’s Jose Pagliery and Asawin Suebsaeng report that they have acquired hundreds of internal emails from Georgia officials immediately calling for an investigation into Trump’s meddling as well as concerned administrators sharing death threats they believed to should be taken seriously.

The report states, “There were death threats promising to make the Boston bombings look like child’s play.’ Impassioned pleas for Georgia’s top elections official to stand firm in the face of pressure from Trump to break the law. And an alarmed state official demanding an immediate investigation into Donald Trump’s ‘solicitation to commit election fraud.'”

Of note is the revelation that calls to Trump about the threats of violence fell upon deaf ears in the White House with Pagliery and Suebsaeng writing, “According to a former senior administration official and another source close to the former president, Trump was repeatedly briefed in the White House on the deluge of death threats directed at Georgia’s Republican officials. The 45th U.S. president’s reactions were—predictably—lacking in empathy.”

According to one ex-official, “There was this one time I heard [Trump] suggest they might be exaggerating the kind of threats they were getting. But more often, he’d make fun of them and say they were bad people who were getting what they deserved.”

There’s more wrong above than a lack of empathy.
