Donald Trump ashamed for endorsing Republican governor of Georgia

Vastavam web: President Donald Trump said Sunday he was ashamed for endorsing the Republican governor of Georgia after he lost in the state to Democrat Joe Biden. Trump has seethed over losing the southern state, which hasn’t voted for a Democrat for president in nearly 30 years. In January, the state will decide whether the GOP retains control of the US Senate when voters decide two run-off Senate races.

Trump said that Gov. Brian Kemp has done absolutely nothing to question the state’s results. Trump has made baseless accusations that illegal votes cost him the election in Georgia and beyond. His legal challenges have failed in several states. Democrats hope for two other upset victories in twin Senate races on January 5 against Republican office holders.

That would deny Republicans their majority, keeping the GOP with 50 seats, while Vice President-elect Kamala Harris would be available for tie-breaking votes. Democrat Jon Ossoff is challenging Sen. David Perdue while Rev Raphael Warnock takes on Sen Kelly Loeffler. No candidate won at least 50 per cent of the vote share in this month’s election, leading to the head-to-head runoffs. At a moment of crisis, when we need strong action.

GOP victories would be a firewall to socialism” and the Democratic policies of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. It is Loeffler’s first election cycle after Gov. Kemp appointed her to the seat in January when her predecessor resigned. Trump on Saturday plans to arrive in the state he lost to campaign for the GOP incumbents.
