An election official in the US state of Georgia has said President Donald Trump will bear responsibility for any violence that results from unsubstantiated election fraud claims he has stoked.

The election official, Gabriel Sterling, says it has all gone too far and warns that it has to stop.

Mr. Sterling cited intimidation and death threats to workers in remarks on Tuesday.

Georgia is carrying out a second recount of votes at the Trump camp’s request. 

Joe Biden was declared a narrow winner in the key state.

Georgia Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger, a Republican, says today that the second re-tally is showing no major changes.

He says no evidence of widespread fraud had been found to support Mr Trump’s claims.

Earlier Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh said his team was trying to make sure “that all legal votes are counted and all illegal votes are not”.
