President Donald Trump He said that on Saturday he will go to Georgia to support the campaigns of Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, who are trying to keep their seats in decisive races for control of the Senate.
“No, the 2020 election was a total fraud, we won by a lot (and I hope we can reverse the fraudulent results), but we must go out and vote and help David and Kelly, two GREAT people. Otherwise we are falling into The hands of very sick people. I’ll be in Georgia on Saturday, “Trump tweeted on Friday, again referencing unsubstantiated fraud theories.
Twitter tagged the message with a warning because the claim that Trump won the election is false and there is no evidence of widespread fraud in the November 3 election.

Perdue and Loeffler face Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, respectively, again after neither of them won a majority of votes to declare a winner in the Nov. 3 election.
The second round election on January 5 will decide which party will control the Senate, a key piece that could give Democrats carte blanche to pass measures for two years or consolidate Republicans as an opposition capable of blocking the legislative goals of the president-elect’s government Joe Biden.
Democrats need to win both seats to add 50 seats and control the upper house with the help of the vice president-elect Kamala Harris as a tie-breaking vote. Republicans have less pressure because they only need to win one seat to add 51 seats and dominate the Senate.
