NEW YORK (Dagbladet): On Saturday night local time, Trump returned to a public meeting in Perry, Georgia. The goal is to retain control of the Republican Party and secure support for some of the local candidates who have backed him in his attempts to overturn the outcome of the 2020 election in the state.
In a radio interview with his supporter, David Brody in The real America’s voiceHe continues to flirt with the idea that he will run for office again in 2024. Meanwhile, he remains careful not to say that he will run.
– Bad News
To ask in another way: Can you for some reason not run for elections? Brody asks.
Well, it could be a phone call with bad news from a doctor or something wrong. happen to people. Things happen through God. They spoke. But you know, I feel good, Trump says, and I hate what’s happening to our country.
Trump, now 75, was the oldest president to be sworn in in January 2017. In January of this year, Joe Biden broke that record (78)
Georgia is one of the states that Trump lost in the 2020 election. Since then, he has claimed without documents that it happened after widespread election fraud. He also tried to pressure local store managers from his Republican Party to try to reverse the election.
On Saturday, he returned to one of his usual rallies to offer his support to three Republican candidates who support him. One of them was Senate candidate and former soccer star Herschel Walker. He wants to challenge a Democratic senator, Raphael Warnock, who won in January.
In addition, Congressional Representative Judy Hayes attended. She is Trump’s choice to replace Secretary of State Brad Ravensberger.
Ravensberger refused to give in to pressure from Trump in January to “find” the votes he needed to win against Biden. Hayes, for his part, has protested Biden’s endorsement as President of Georgia, writes AP.
Additionally, Senator Burt Jones is involved. He was one of the first Trump supporters to push for Biden’s election victory. Now he wants to run for deputy governor.
– I know he lost
Raffinsberger says Washington Examiner He is “horrified” at how Trump will continue to spread lies about election fraud just to be able to keep raising money.
– He will come, and he will say what he will say. Rafsberger told the newspaper the day before the Trump rally that he knew deep down he had lost.
He even received death threats when he did not succumb to pressure from Trump to reverse the election result.
In a letter to Ravensberger last week, Trump made new allegations of widespread electoral fraud in the November 3 presidential election.
– What bothers me, and which should really bother everyone, is that we still have to deal with incorrect information about the election ten months after the votes were counted, says Ravensberger.
Trump is already under investigation in Georgia over his post-election behavior and the pressure he put on local store agents. On Friday, a report came from Brookings Institution Which concluded that Trump faced a “significant risk” of being indicted.
