PRESIDENT Trump slammed what he described as the “rigged” November election and said “there’s no way we lost” as soon as he took to a rally stage in Georgia on Monday.
Trump is campaigning for Republican Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Purdue ahead of Tuesday’s run-off election against Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff.
Taking to the stage in Dalton on Monday night, the president told his cheering crowd of supporters “There’s no way we lost Georgia, there’s no way,” before adding “the election was rigged.”
Later in his thumping speech, Trump said he would campaign against the Georgia Governor Brian Kemp and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.
“I’ll campaign against them in a year and a half,” Trump said to cheers from the crowd.
His pledge came after a secret recording on Sunday showed Trump trying to convince Kemp and Raffensperger to “find” enough votes to declare him the winner in the state over President-elect Joe Biden.
Warning of a Democratic victory in the Senate run-offs, Trump also warned that the “radical socialist” party would put “MS13 gang members straight into schools.”
“They’re not taking this White House,” Trump said of Democrats before promising “we’re going to fight like hell.”
Carrying on with his rhetoric, Trump pointed to Vice President Mike Pence as possibly “coming through” for Trump in his role as certifier of the Electoral College on Wednesday.
“And I hope Mike Pence comes through for us,” Trump said, adding he “won’t like him quite as much” if Pence doesn’t.
Pence’s role on Wednesday is mostly ceremonial and has no bearing on the actual certification of the election results.
Trump also blasted the Supreme Court for not overturning the election in his favor.
“The supreme court has let us down,” Trump said before ominously adding “So far. Who knows. Maybe they’ll come back.”
SCOTUS has three far-right justices appointed by Trump himself, and the president said the court might regret their lack of decision in his favor if Democrats added more justices.
