[Asia News Communication = Reporter Reakkana] President Donald Trump said on Sunday (Nov 29) he was “ashamed” for endorsing the Republican governor of Georgia after he lost in the state to Democrat Joe Biden.
Trump has seethed over losing the southern state, which hadn’t voted for a Democrat for president in nearly 30 years. In January, the state will decide whether the GOP retains control of the US Senate when voters decide two run-off Senate races. Trump said on Fox News that governor Brian Kemp has “done absolutely nothing” to question the state’s results. Trump has made baseless accusations that illegal votes cost him the election in Georgia and beyond. His legal challenges have failed in several states.
Trump-backed Kemp’s campaign in 2018, boasting that his “full endorsement” helped him edge rising Democrat Stacey Abrams. In this month’s presidential contest, Biden beat Trump by about 12,670 votes. Trump on Saturday plans to arrive in the state he lost to campaign for the GOP incumbents. “We're making sure that Georgians are fired up to turn out to vote,” Loeffler said. “If we vote, we will win this election.”
