Donald Trump is continuing to attack Republican state officials in Georgia as they prepare for two crucial runoffs in January to determine who will control the United States Senate.
In his off the rails interview with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo on Sunday, Trump floated a series of wild conspiracy theories about the 2020 election and falsely claimed once again that it was stolen from him by Joe Biden.
One of the states that played a huge part in Biden’s 306 electoral votes was Georgia. Biden flipped the state, becoming the first Democratic candidate for president to do so in 28 years.
On Sunday, Trump attacked the state’s Republican Gov. Brian Kemp declaring that he was “ashamed” to have ever endorsed him.
“The governor’s done nothing. He’s done absolutely nothing. I’m ashamed that I endorsed him,” Trump said
In the days after the election, Trump and local Republicans in Georgia have scapegoated local election officials like Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger for Trump’s failure to hang on to the once ruby red state. They claim the voting process in the state was rife with fraud but failed to provide any evidence of such.
This as the state is in the spotlight because of the two crucial runoffs that will determine who controls the United States Senate. Incumbent Republican senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue are facing Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, respectively.
Both Loeffler and Perdue have called for Raffensperger to step down.
