Donald Trump wrote a letter to Brad Raffensperger, Secretary of State to Georgia, asking him to "decertify" the 2020 election. This was on Friday.

A Trump spokesperson Liz Harrington posted the letter to Twitter. It claims that it contained evidence of "large-scale voter fraud" in Georgia.

Trump refers 43,000 absentee votes, which he claims violate the chain of custody rules.

"I respectfully request that you department check this, and, if true along with many other claims regarding voter fraud or voter irregularities, begin the prices for decertifying the electoral process, or any other legal remedy, and announce who the true winner is," the letter states.

Donald Trump's repeated claims of widespread voter fraud and election fraud have been unsubstantiated since he lost the 2020 election.

Joe Biden won Georgia with just over 12,000 votes from nearly 5,000,000 votes.

The state has conducted recounts and audits that have all confirmed Joe Biden's victory.

Republican Raffensperger previously stated that there was no doubt that Biden won.

Trump wrote Raffensperger a letter in which he stated, "People don't understand why Governor Brian Kemp and you stubbornly refuse to admit the now proven facts."

The legal challenges to 2020 elections were not heard in court. The Justice Department also stated that it had found no evidence of widespread fraud.

Georgia prosecutors opened a criminal investigation against Trump in February over his efforts to force officials in Georgia to cancel his state loss.

Trump's letter arrives just days before the "Justice for J6” rally in Washington DC.

This rally supports those accused of crimes related to the January 6 Insurrection when Donald Trump supporters stormed Capitol to prevent Joe Biden's election victory being certified.

Trump referred to the rioters accused of crimes this week as "political prisoner"
