US Political Crisis: Trump Not Showing Sign of Backing Down

213

President Donald Trump is not yet showing any sign of backing down in his fight over contested election results as he spoke at a rally in Peach State.

As rally goers in Georgia chant “STOP THE STEAL!” President Trump responds: “Your governor could stop it very easily if he knew what the hell he was doing!”

Peach State is however, where upcoming elections to the Senate will decide who gets a legislative majority in Washington.

Trump has met his supporters in Valdosta, Georgia, in his first rally since election day, to support Republican senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler in the upcoming January election.

That is while the president himself is contesting results in the swing state, which has officially been called for Joe Biden.

The former Vice President won the state by nearly 12,000 votes, according to certified results after recounts.

But, Trump is insisting he won the election in the state, saying earlier he received “more LEGAL votes by far.”

Georgia’s Republican Governor Brian Kemp was not present at the rally, after president earlier criticized him over the handling of the election in the state.

At some point during his speech, Trump asked congressman Doug Collins if he wants to run for governor in two years instead of Kemp.

Trump urged his supporters to vote for the Republican senators, adding that if they don’t, “the socialists and the communists win.” He added that he will “never, ever surrender.”
