Georgia’s election selection: Trump says he will turn to Loeffler in Perdue

“Speaking of Georgia, I’m going to go there,” the president said after a video teleconference call for Thanksgiving with members of the U.S. service, while unjustifiably violating the integrity of the state’s election results.

White House spokesman Judd Deere said the president’s visit is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 5.

“I might go twice,” Trump said at one point, noting that he would love to do it in a stadium. “But you can’t, because of Covid.”

Georgia is holding running elections for both seats in the U.S. Senate. If any Republican in office, Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, retain their seats, the party will retain majority control in the chamber.

However, if both Democratic Challengers Jon Ossoff and Reverend Raphael Warnock prevail, Democrats could gain control of the Senate thanks to a tie vote by elected Vice President Kamala Harris.

“Don’t be disappointed,” Trump said, “because this race isn’t over yet.”

The president’s remarks disrupt the raging press conference in which he called for more unfounded theories of voter fraud conspiracy and continued to deny his election loss. The sight came immediately after the troops were called – an event traditionally used by U.S. presidents to boost the morale of service members abroad during the holidays and remind the country of their service.

“Many of you are very far from home, but today we hope you know that millions of American families are praying with gratitude for the sacrifices you have made and the incredible, utterly incredible work,” Trump said as he began the call. . “

The country, he added, “is doing very well. The greatest honor of my life is to serve as commander-in-chief.”

Trump spoke with six units representing each U.S. military arm, including the Space Force, which he said “occupies a special place in my heart.”

“Thank you all, have a great Thanksgiving and don’t eat too many turkeys.”

Joe Biden is elected president tweeted that he spent the afternoon on video calls with those working on the front.

“It was a great honor for Jill and I to be able to talk to some of the heroes on the front lines of the crisis,” Biden said. “Today and every day, we are grateful for the nurses and firefighters who sacrifice enough to keep our community safe. In his courage and selflessness, we see the best in America.”

In 2017 and 2018, Trump held a Thanksgiving ceremony with troops at the resort of Mar-a-Lago, and made a surprise visit to U.S. troops in Afghanistan last year.

“Nowhere do I want to celebrate this Thanksgiving day more than here,” Trump said at the time, “with the toughest, strongest, best, and bravest warriors on earth.”
