President Trump called out Gov. Brian Kemp (R-Ga.) and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger over their approach to Democrat voting rights activist Stacey Abrams.
During his rally Monday, the President blasted them for signing a “consent decree,” a legal settlement regarding the absentee ballot process made with the state’s Democrat party.
“You know, your governor, your governor and your secretary of state, they’re petrified of Stacey Abrams,” the President said during the Georgia rally.
He questioned if the two are truly Republicans considering their persistent defiance of his calls to take action over the election.
“They say they’re Republicans, I really don’t think they are. They can’t be,” President Trump stated. “Like, if we want to have a special session because your legislature is excellent, they want to have us, why wouldn’t they let us have a special session?”
Republicans in Georgia must be careful of the political corruption in Fulton County, which is rampant. The Governor, @BrianKempGA, and his puppet Lt. Governor, @GeoffDuncanGA, have done less than nothing. They are a disgrace to the great people of Georgia!

The President also vowed to campaign against Kemp and Raffensperger when they are up for re-election in 2022.
