Trump rallies for Georgia’s GOP senators Loeffler and Perdue with Melania by his side after Twitter spat with Gov Kemp

PRESIDENT Donald Trump is holding a rally in Georgia tonight ahead of the state’s runoff Senate races.

The event in the Peach State on Saturday is to amp up support for Republican Senate runoff candidates David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler.

Perdue and Loeffler both spoke before Trump’s arrival — and neither talked to the crowd about Trump’s loss in the state, or the election being rigged.

Perdue did, however, say: “If we win Georgia, we save America.”

Since the presidential race was called for Democrat Joe Biden, Trump has been blasting Republican Governor Brian Kemp for his own loss.

Trump tweeted earlier on Saturday: “I will easily & quickly win Georgia if Governor @BrianKempGA or the Secretary of State permit a simple signature verification.”

“Has not been done and will show large scale discrepancies. Why are these two ‘Republicans’ saying no? If we win Georgia, everything else falls in place!”

Kemp replied on Twitter that he told Trump during a phone call on Saturday morning that he’s “publicly called for a signature audit three times (11/20, 11/24, 12/3) to restore confidence in our election process and to ensure that only legal votes are counted in Georgia.”

But Trump wasn’t having it.

The president replied: “But you never got the signature verification! Your people are refusing to do what you ask. What are they hiding?”

“At least immediately ask for a Special Session of the Legislature. That you can easily, and immediately, do. #Transparency.”

En route to his rally, Trump said that because of Arizona’s Republican Governor Doug Ducey and Kemp, “the Democrat Party could not be happier.”

“They fight harder against us than do the Radical Left Dems. If they were with us, we would have already won both Arizona and Georgia.

“We received more LEGAL votes by far. All I can do is run, campaign, and be a good (great!) President – it is 100% up to the states to manage the election. Republicans will NEVER forget this.”

At the event tonight, Trump will be joined by First Lady Melania — in a show of unity more than a month after Election Day.

It’s been reported Kemp will not be in attendance at the rally.

Georgia certified its election results in November, with Biden as the winner over Trump, and recertified those results on Friday.
