‘We’re going there’: Trump announces plan to campaign in Georgia ahead of Senate runoff races

Although the mainstream media has declared a win for Joe Biden in the race for the White House, President Donald Trump has not finished campaigning this election season.

As reported by the New York Post, the president is planning a trip to Georgia, where he will stump for two GOP Senate candidates who are facing tough battles in a pair of runoff elections.

“We’re going there”

Trump revealed his plan on Thursday after a teleconference with members of the U.S. military stationed overseas for the Thanksgiving holiday.

“Speaking of Georgia, we’re going there,” he said, according to the Post. “I spoke with the two great senators today. I’ll probably be going on Saturday.”

The president further noted that he would likely hold a campaign rally of some type while in the state, signaling the importance of the two races that will determine the balance of power in the Senate.

As it stands, Republicans hold a 50–48 lead over Democrats in the chamber. The runoffs in January will determine which party controls the final two seats.

In the event of a 50–50 split, any tied votes would be decided by the vice president — namely, Kamala Harris, assuming Biden maintains the status of president-elect.

“Tremendous discrepancies”

If Democrats hold the White House and the House of Representatives, a GOP majority in the Senate is likely to be the primary line of defense against a progressive agenda. Given the high stakes, it is understandable that both parties are sinking significant resources into Georgia.

For his part, Trump expressed his grievances Thursday about the alleged election fraud he believes cost him the state’s electoral votes, asserting that Georgians feel “very disappointed we were robbed.”

Going on to compare the 2020 election that that of “a third-world country,” he roundly denounced the process by which Georgia’s results were determined.

“You have to really take a look at what’s going on,” Trump said, according to the New York Post. “They’re finding tremendous discrepancies in the votes. Nobody believes those numbers, those numbers are incorrect numbers.”

Nevertheless, when asked by one reporter whether he would leave the White House if the Electoral College certifies a Biden win, Trump declared: “Certainly, I will.”
