- 'I think they say that if you win Florida and if you win Ohio, in history you've never lost an election.
- 'They cheated and they rigged our presidential election, and they're gonna try to rig this election too,' Trump told his cheering supporters at the rally in Georgia
- “If I lost, I would be a very gracious loser,” Trump said. “If I lost, I would say I lost and I would go to Florida and I would take it easy.”
President Donald Trump isn’t giving up just yet on his claims that the elections were rigged in favor of his opponent, Joe Biden. On Saturday, Trump was at it again. Claiming as he has done several times in recent days. Speaking during his first post-election rally that he is a victim of elections thievery.
Once again he described the November US presidential election as a fraud. The president however assured that he would eventually win.
‘I think they say that if you win Florida and if you win Ohio, in history you’ve never lost an election. This has got to be a first time – but the truth is they were right, we’ve never lost and we’re winning this election,’ Trump said to a crowd of supporters in Valdosta, in the state of Georgia.
‘They cheated and they rigged our presidential election, and they’re gonna try to rig this upcoming election too,’ Trump told his cheering supporters at the rally in Georgia where he campaigned for his Republican candidates for the special senatorial elections in January.
Trump has insisted that the Democrats cheated. Trump showed video clips of the Legislative 6 hour hearing where sworn affidavits and expert testimony were given. He went on to state that he won Georgia despite the counts indicating that he was defeated in that state by more than 12,000 votes.
Trump’s legal efforts to reverse the election count are still in play according to the constitutional process.
Before the event, the president was on Twitter challenging the Republican Governors of Arizona and Georgia, Doug Ducey and Brian Kemp, whom he accused of “fighting harder” against him than against the Democrats.
The United States Department of Justice said that they have not seen any fraud in the elections that would change the outcome of the election. Trump insists that he is the legitimate winner of the election. “If I lost, I would be a very gracious loser,” Trump said. “If I lost, I would say I lost and I would go to Florida and I would take it easy.”
Few Attendees Ware a Mask Despite Covid-19
Despite the growing cases of coronavirus across the country, few attendees at the rally wore masks and many didn’t observe social distancing measures.
Trump was in the state of Georgia to campaign for the two Republican candidates for the Senate – Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue – who will contest a second round on January 5, in an election with great national relevance.
If the Democrats win both elections, they would control both the Senate and the House of Representatives and if Joe Biden prevails in the presidential election, he would not necessarily have to negotiate with the Republicans for the approval of laws.
The latest polls shows the Georgia senatorial race is very close.
Trump has accused the Democratic candidates of being “radical” and “extremist.“ He charged his supporters with the importance to vote despite their disappointment in the presidential election fraud.
The president has alleged that the Democrats will also try to manipulate this election and he has called on his supporters telling them if you want revenge then make sure you “get out to vote.”
