Trump fans steadfast at first rally after election
Supporters turned out in Valdosta, Georgia for President Donald Trump's first political rally since losing the election. The event is meant to boost Republican incumbents campaigning in two runoffs that will decide party control of the Senate. (Nov. 5)
President Trump encourages those who attended a rally in Washington, D.C. to march to the Capitol and protest Congress counting the Electoral College ballots for the presidential election. First Lady Melania Trump touted President Trump's record while introducing him at a rally in Georgia on Saturday, adding that "America is respected again." In his first major public appearance after losing the US presidential election, Donald Trump has spread further unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud. Speaking at a rally in Georgia, where a crucial senate race is underway, outgoing president Trump insisted he had won a second term. But increasing numbers of his own Republican party are tiring of his rhetoric.
Trump's Democratic rival Joe Biden has been declared the winner by enough states to ensure victory, and more than 30 of Trump's legal challenges have failed in the courts. But the president sees an alternative reality.
The rally in Georgia was for Republicans Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, who are contesting the state's run-off senate election in January.
But some in Trump's own party are growing weary of his rhetoric. Georgia's Republican governor has refused to take steps to override the state's pro-Biden poll result.
Georgia's run-off election is especially critical. The vote will determine which party holds power in the senate. "You made America great again."
President Trump called up Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue on stage to speak at a rally in Georgia on Saturday.
