President Donald Trump lashed out at Arizona Gov Doug Ducey Monday night for 'rushing to put a Democrat in office' as a video appeared to show him ignore a call from the White House during a press conference where he certified the state's vote for Joe Biden.
Just a few seconds into the press conference, Ducey is seen pulling a cell phone from his coat pocket.
He then appears to ignore the call that was reportedly from the White House.
'HE'LL GET BACK TO YOU Back in July, Gov. Ducey said he changed his White House ringtone to "Hail to The Chief" so he wouldn't miss a call from Trump/Pence. Guess who called while Ducey was certifying Arizona's election? (7 secs in),' NBC reporter Brahm Resnik tweeted.
Trump later wrote in the caption of the video of Ducey during the press conference: 'Why is he rushing to put a Democrat in office, especially when so many horrible things concerning voter fraud are being revealed at the hearing going on right now.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer

Trump then retweeted a claim that Ducey had 'betrayed the people of Arizona,' and commented: 'TRUE!'
He also shared a post that asked: 'Who needs Democrats when you have Republicans like (Georgia Gov) Brian Kemp and Doug Ducey?'
Earlier on Monday, Trump dialed into an Arizona 'hearing' on election fraud that went on for more than eight hours, claiming the election was 'rigged' and bashing the Ducey for certifying the state's vote for Biden.
'The 2020 election was rigged it was a scam and the whole world is watching and they're laughing at our country,' Trump said, phoning into the hearing-style event after 7pm.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
'We got 74 million [votes] and we didn't win. But I know that we won Arizona and we won Michigan and we won Georgia and we won Pennsylvania and we won Wisconsin. But what they did is they played games,' he said.
'This is the greatest scam ever perpetrated on our country,' said Trump. He called it 'the big one' after 'Russia Russia Russia' and what he called the 'phony impeachment'.

He attacked Ducey for certifying the vote – which also sent Democratic Sen Mark Kelly to Washington after his defeat of Sen Martha McSally.
'We're going to win this thing. We're not giving up ever,' Trump said.
'He just rushed to sign certificates so that Kelly gets into the senate as soon as possible. What's that all about?' Trump said.
'Why would you sign when you have these incredible hearings going on that show such corruption and such incredible fraud,' he said.
Also on Monday, Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani made the trip to Arizona to outline a conspiracy involving foreign powers, Democrats and voting machines that he said made the election 'illegitimate'.
Arizona secretary of state State Katie Hobbs, a Democrat, provided the certification, which also got a sign-off from the state's Republican governor, Governor Doug Ducey.
All of the state's 11 electoral votes will go Biden, who secured 306 electoral votes to President Trump's 232.
The news, yet another blow for the president's legal strategy seeking to overturn the vote in states that voted for Biden, came as Trump railed against 'corruption' in the state.

Giuliani and Jenna Ellis appeared at another hearing-style event to make their case for widespread election fraud.
As at one last week in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, the event was an unofficial hearing in a hotel lobby featuring only Republican lawmakers without witnesses being put under oath.
Giuliani repeated many of his earlier allegations, throwing in a few new details, such as a reference to Hunter Biden's laptop, the focus of his pre-election corruption charges that has virtually vanished following the November 3 election.
