Dear Friend,

In these times of COVID-19, climate chaos and elections, independent news is more important than ever. You turn to Democracy Now! because you trust that when we're reporting on the pandemic or the uprisings against police brutality—or the climate crisis—our coverage is not brought to you by the fossil fuel, insurance or weapons industries or Big Pharma. We count on YOU to make our work possible. If everyone who visits our website gave just $8, we could cover our operating costs for 2021. Really—that’s all it would take. And today a generous supporter will double your donation to Democracy Now!, meaning your gift will go twice as far. This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a donation, please do so today. Stay safe, wear a mask and thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

Arizona Secretary of State Faces Death Threats as Trump Promotes Election Conspiracy Theories

HeadlineNov 19, 2020

President Trump continues to refuse to concede to Joe Biden and has retreated from public view, with no public events on his calendar today for the 12th day since the election. On Twitter, Trump continues to promote baseless conspiracy theories about flipped votes and a stolen election.

In Arizona, Secretary of State Katie Hobbs said her family has been subjected to “ongoing and escalating threats of violence” since Biden’s victory. She said in a statement, “There are those, including the president, members of Congress and other elected officials, who are perpetuating misinformation and are encouraging others to distrust the election results in a manner that violates the oath of office they took. It is well past time that they stop. Their words and actions have consequences.”
