Donald Trump has been enraged by a film that has emerged of one of his top political allies, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, ignoring a call from him.
Ducey was seen taking his phone out of his pocket and turning it over, placing it face down on his desk, while certifying the election result in his state, won by Joe Biden in the 2020 election. Trump won Arizona by a massive margin in 2016 and Ducey even told reporters that he had a “Hail to the Chief” ringtone, specifically for Trump and Vice President Pence, so that he could instantly identify their calls.
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) pic.twitter.com/bzBGpfSIDf

So most of you have now seen the video of Gov. Doug Ducey ignoring a call from the White House as he was certifying Arizona’s election results, but minutes later this happened: pic.twitter.com/2di9FlYawD

After the video emerged of Ducey receiving their calls, he was seen again putting his vibrating phone away, although it’s unclear whether it was the President on the other end of the line. Meanwhile, after Trump found out about what his ally in Arizona, Ducey, had done, he launched a tirade that one should come to accept from the laying-duck President.
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. @OANN What is going on with @dougducey? Republicans will long remember! https://t.co/XILGaHcyw7

“We didn’t lose the state, we won it by a lot.” he said on Monday evening, as reported by Metro UK, saying “Who needs Democrats when you have Republicans like Brian Kemp and Doug Ducey?”
Kemp, the Governor of Georgia, a swing state that Trump also lost to Biden, has also certified the result, much to Trump’s ire.
