Press Sec. Jean-Pierre responds to Doocy comparing Trump denying 2020 election to calling out attack on voting rights.
DOOCY: “You tweeted Trump stole an election. You tweeted Brian Kemp stole an election. If denying election results is extreme now. Why wasn’t it then?”
KJP: “Yeah. So let's be really clear. That comparison that you made is just ridiculous….I was talking specifically at that time of what was happening with voting rights and what was in danger of voting rights. That's what I was speaking to at the time. And here's the thing, I have said Governor Kemp won the election in Georgia. I've been clear about that. I have said President Trump won the election of 2016 and I've been clear about that. What we are talking about right now is, let's not forget what happened on January, 6 2021 when we saw an insurrection, a mob, that was incited by the person who occupied this campus, this facility, and at that time, and it was an attack on our democracy. Let's not forget people died that day. Law enforcement were attacked that day. That was the danger that we were seeing at the time. That's what the president has called out. And that's what he's going to continue to call out.”
