Georgia Official's Warning to Trump in Fiery Press Conference Watched Over 6 Million Times

The clip of a Georgia election official angrily condemning Donald Trump for "inspiring people to commit potential acts of violence" has been viewed more than six million times in its first 24 hours online.

Gabriel Sterling, the voting implementation manager for the Georgia secretary of state's office, gained national attention for his impassioned words against the president, who continues to claim the election was "rigged" because of widespread voter fraud.

Georgia has been one of the focuses of Trump's anger, after his significant early lead was overtaken by Joe Biden when mail-in ballots were counted.

Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, Sterling told reporters he would "do my best to keep it together" before detailing incidents of violence, death threats and harassment which he blames Trump and other GOP figures for.

Sterling said these include Trump's campaign lawyer Joe DiGenova calling for former cybersecurity chief Chris Krebs to be "taken out at dawn and shot" for disputing Trump's election claims.

Sterling also said a worker in Gwinnett County has received death threats and a "noose put out saying he should be hung for treason" after conspiracy theorists shared video of him transferring a report on batches from an EMS to a county computer so he could read it, claiming this is proof of voter fraud.

"It has all gone too far," Georgia election official @GabrielSterling said while addressing threats against election workers.

"Mr. President, you have not condemned these actions or this language. Senators, you've not condemned this language or these actions. This has to stop," Sterling said.

Sterling added that his boss, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, has had his address put online and caravans of people showing up to his house. His wife Trisha has also been sent "sexualized threats" to her cell phone.

"This is elections. This is the backbone of democracy. And all of you who have not said a damn word are complicit in this," Sterling said.

"Mr. President, it looks like you likely lost the state of Georgia. We're investigating. There's always a possibility. I get it. You have the rights to go to the courts.

"Stop inspiring people to commit potential acts of violence. Someone's gonna get hurt. Someone's gonna get shot. Someone's gonna get killed."

The clip of the press conference was originally posted by GPB News and retweeted more than 5,400 times, although it has also been re-uploaded and widely shared elsewhere.

Trump did respond to Sterling's press conference, but ignored the pleas to condemn the death threats and harassment and instead once again attempted to tarnish the legitimacy of Georgia's vote counting.

"Rigged Election. Show signatures and envelopes. Expose the massive voter fraud in Georgia. What is Secretary of State and @BrianKempGA afraid of. They know what we'll find!!!," Trump tweeted.

The tweet, like dozens of others from Trump since Election Day, was flagged as disputed by Twitter.
