“We are winning this election”. During his first campaign meeting since the US presidential election, Donald Trump hammered on Saturday night in Georgia that he would win the ballot, despite the victory attributed to Joe Biden almost a month ago.
Donald Trump made the trip to support two outgoing Republican senators who will face a crucial double by-election on January 5.
“You have no idea how bad it will go”
At stake: the majority of the US Senate and therefore the balance of power in Washington when Joe Biden takes office on January 20. If these senators, Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, “do not win, nothing can stop” the Democrats, thundered Donald Trump. “You have no idea how bad it will go.”
But he therefore dedicated a good first part of his speech to talking about the presidential election of November 3 in front of the hundreds of supporters gathered outdoors in Valdosta.
“They will try to convince us that we have lost. We have not lost ”, he added to enthusiastic cries. “This election was rigged”.
Despite his accusations of fraud, the courts have dismissed a myriad of legal remedies presented by his team of lawyers across the United States.
Accompanied by his wife Melania Trump, the Republican recalled his victories of November 3 in key states, Florida and Ohio, then added, contrary to the official result: “We also won Georgia, it was good. “.
” We love you “
Donald Trump once again strongly criticized the governor of this conservative state, yet Republican and an ex-ally, urging him to check the ballots again.
Georgia’s result has already been verified and certified, giving Democrat Joe Biden the victory by a narrow lead of less than 13,000 votes.
In the well-honed staging of his presidential campaign, the Republican tribune was accompanied by his wife Melania Trump, with his Air Force One presidential plane in the background.
“We love you,” chanted the crowd, where few wore masks.
