President Donald Trump has retweeted a post from a conservative attorney that called for senior Georgia Republicans to be jailed.
On Tuesday, the president retweeted a tweet from Lin Wood, an attorney who has filed multiple unsuccessful lawsuits in an effort to help Trump overturn the results of the Nov. 3 election.
“President Trump…is a genuinely good man. He does not really like to fire people. I bet he dislikes putting people in jail, especially ‘Republicans,’” Wood tweeted.
“He gave @BrianKempGA & @GaSecofState every chance to get it right. They refused. They will soon be going to jail,” he added, in the post that was retweeted by Trump on Tuesday morning.
The two senior Republican officials had Chinese flag masks photoshopped onto their faces in the accompanying picture, in reference to Wood’s claims that China helped rig the election for President-elect Biden.
President Trump has publicly attacked Georgia’s GOP Governor Brian Kemp and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in recent weeks, after he became the first Republican to lose the state in nearly 30 years.
Trump has refused to concede and continues to repeat the false claim that there was widespread voter fraud in Georgia.
