United States President Donald Trump has called on Georgia’s top election official to “find” enough votes to overturn the election result.

Mr Trump told Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in a recording released by the Washington Post.

It comes ahead of two crucial runoff elections in Georgia on Tuesday that will decide which party controls the Senate.

Joe Biden won Georgia alongside other states, winning 306 electoral college votes to Mr Trump’s 232.

Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris called Mr Trump’s comments “a bold abuse of power”.

Since the 3 November vote, Mr Trump has been making unsubstantiated allegations of widespread electoral fraud.

All 50 states have certified the election result, some after recounts and legal appeals.

Congress is due to formally approve the election result on 6 January and Mr Biden, a Democrat, is due to be inaugurated as president on 20 January.
