he can't do that
December 1, 2020

President Trump is once again expressing his disappointment with Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R).

After saying over the weekend that he was "ashamed" he endorsed Kemp, Trump accused him of not doing enough to guarantee Georgia's 2020 election for Republicans in a Tuesday tweet. In response to an unfounded article insinuating Georgia's voting machines were tampered with, Trump called on Kemp to "do something" after he "allowed your state to be scammed."

Georgia's certified election results gave its 16 electoral votes to President-elect Joe Biden, though a recount is still underway. Meanwhile no candidates in both of Georgia's Senate races brought in a majority of the votes, sending both seats to a runoff on Jan. 5. Trump claimed Monday that after officials "check signatures and count signed envelopes against ballots," Kemp can "call off election" because "it won't be needed." Biden has a 13,000-vote lead in Georgia, far more than any recount has ever overturned.

On Saturday, Trump told Fox Business' Maria Bartiromo that Kemp has "done absolutely nothing" to help Trump flip the election results in the state, though Trump has been a little more removed from the Senate races that will determine control of the body. Kathryn Krawczyk
