Trump was requested, “In case you don’t assume the presidential election was authentic for those who assume that it was stolen, what confidence do you anticipate voters to have after they go to the polls to vote for say Kelly Loeffler or Purdue?”
Trump gave the one reply that Republicans fear the most, “Properly, I advised him right this moment I feel you’re coping with a really fraudulent system. I’m very fearful about that. They’re super folks. Kelly Loeffler, David Perdue are super folks. They need to be within the senate, however I advised him right this moment, I stated pay attention, you might have a fraudulent system. You’ve got a system the place the flick of a swap or the placing in of a brand new chip can change the course of historical past. And it’s important to be very cautious. I learn this morning the place Stacey Abrams has 850,000 ballots accrued. That’s known as harvesting. You’re not allowed to reap, however I perceive the secretary of state who was actually — he’s an enemy of the folks. The secretary of state and whether or not he’s a Republican aren’t.”
The explanation why Republicans on the prime of Georgia’s political management have been standing behind Joe Biden’s win is that they don’t like Republicans to imagine the false fraud claims that the president is making and never present as much as vote within the Senate runoff election.
Trump attacked mail-in voting and discouraged his supporters from voting by mail. These assaults might have price him the election. He’s now telling his supporters to not present up and vote in two Senate runoff elections that look to be very shut.
Donald Trump is so bitter about his loss and wrapped up in bogus election fraud conspiracies that he might find yourself handing the Senate to Joe Biden and the Democrats in January.
