Trump Tells Cheering Georgia Rally Crowd: ‘You Know We Won’
'We’re fighting very hard for this state'
President Donald Trump wowed a roaring crowd in Georgia while campaigning for the Senate runoff election on behalf of Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler.
The President reiterated his assertion that he was winning the presidential election.
“You know we won Georgia, just so you understand,” Trump said.
“We love you!”
“We’re winning this election,” he continued.
“We’re fighting very hard for this state.”
Trump highlighted allegations of corruption in the election in the state of Georgia.
“When the numbers come out of ceilings and leather bags you start to say, ‘What’s going on?” Trump said.
Trump added the upcoming runoff election in Georgia was the “most important congressional runoff in history."
The President then urged voters to support Perdue and Loeffler.
“You have to do it, they cheated, and they rigged our presidential election, but we will still win it,” he said.
Trump then warned that Democrats are planning to steal the Senate runoff elections in the state.
The crowd chanted, “Stop the steal!” as the President spoke of efforts to contest the election.
Trump also touched on his dispute with Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.
“That’s up to your government here, and for whatever reason, your secretary of state and your governor are afraid of Stacey Abrams,” he said.
Both Kemp and Raffensperger signed paperwork that certified the Georgia election for Joe Biden last month.
But Trump vowed to continue litigating the election all the way to the Supreme Court.
“If we have courage and wisdom, I think we know what the answer is going to be because you can’t let people get away with what they got away with,” he said.
The President reminded the crowd they won more votes in 2020 than any sitting president in history.
“They’re trying to convince us that we lost. We didn’t lose. They found a lot of ballots, to be nice about it, and they got rid of some too,” he said.
Trump later noted that he would have no problem conceding and stepping down from power if he had lost the election fairly.
“If I lost, I’d be a very gracious loser. If I lost, I would say I lost, and I would go to Florida, and I would take it easy … but you can’t ever accept when they steal and rig and rob.”
Earlier this week, Trump's campaign filed a new lawsuit in Georgia seeking to overturn the presidential race results.
The suit, filed on Friday evening, is seeking to invalidate the results in the Peach State and could have a huge impact on the nationwide outcome of the election.
