Taking center stage in the Georgia Senate runoff rally, President Trump spent plenty of time discussing his own political fight, declaring “I don’t concede.”
Trump spoke to the thousands of supporters who turned out in Dalton, Ga., on Monday night, saying, “There is no way we lost Georgia. That was a rigged election. But we are still fighting it, and you’re going to see what will happen.”
While Trump did spend time talking about the Senate election, he often brought the fight for power back to his own battle over voter fraud, stating, “The radical Democrats are trying to capture Georgia Senate seats, so they will have absolute power over every aspect of your lives, if the liberal Democrats take the Senate and the White House.
“And they are not taking this White House,” he added. “We will fight like h*ll. I will tell you right now.”
Georgia Sen. Kelly Loeffler announced at the rally that she would be joining the fight against certifying the Electoral College vote. “I have an announcement, Georgia, on Jan. 6, I will object to the Electoral College vote. We will get this done, Georgia.
“I have a very important question for you. Are you ready to show America that Georgia is a red state?” she continued.
“This president fought for us. We are fighting for him. He put America first. He put the American worker first. Thanks, Mr. President. He stood with our men and women of law enforcement and restored our military.”
As the rally was nearing its conclusion, Trump returned to the podium to implore those in attendance to “Stop the steal,” saying, “Our entire nation is counting on the people of Georgia—in a way the world is counting on the people of Georgia. The fate of our country is at stake. It’s in your hands.
“You must deliver a Republican victory so big that the Democrats can’t steal it or cheat it away,” Trump said. “They will be trying. I will tell you that.”
