As Republican control of the Senate hangs on the balance of the upcoming Georgia runoff election, President Donald Trump (R) is taking aim at Georgia Governor Brian Kemp (R). The verbal jabs aimed at Kemp come as early voting is underway for both Senate races that will determine if Republicans will keep control of the Senate or whether Democrats will turn the Senate blue as the President continues his legal challenges against the November 3rd presidential election. This also comes at a time when talks of Americans receiving $2,000 have stalled in the Senate even after President Trump has doubled down on Americans receiving this help from the federal government.

On Twitter, the President lashed out at Republican leadership in Georgia, admitting that he loves “the Great State of Georgia, but the people who run it, from the Governor… to the Secretary of State, are a complete disaster and don’t have a clue, or worse.” He added that “nobody can be this stupid” and they should be allowed to “find the crime, and turn the state Republican.”

The comments are in response to the legal challenges that the President has aimed at perceived voting irregularities in Georgia and in other states, calling the 2020 presidential election a rigged election that the Democrats “stole.”

The President went on to express that “the consent decree signed by the ‘Secretary,’ with the consent of Kemp, is perhaps even more poorly negotiated than the deal that John Kerry made with Iran.”

In turn, “it turns out that Brad R’s brother works for China, and they definitely don’t want ‘Trump.’”

The President called the whole ordeal “disgusting!”

The Georgia Governor has not responded to the President’s words, but the comments come after Republicans have faced some infighting over the future of the Republican party and over the results of the November elections.

Ultimately, President Trump signaled that Kemp should resign from office over his lack of leadership, calling him an "obstructionist who refuses to admit that we won Georgia, BIG!"
