President Trump urged Georgia voters to stop Democrats from gaining unchecked control of Washington and warned of a push toward socialism, tax hikes, the Green New Deal, and packing the Supreme Court with additional justices, according to the New York Post.
“Your vote tomorrow will decide which party controls the United States Senate,” Trump said.
“The radical Democrats are trying to capture Georgia’s Senate seats so they could wield unchecked, unrestrained absolute power on every aspect of your lives,” he warned.
The president was in Georgia to fire-up support for GOP Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler.
“If these two don’t win, and if we don’t take the presidency, you have a country that will be run by Schumer, Pelosi and Biden,” Trump said.
“The people of Georgia will be at the mercy of the left-wing socialists, communists, Marxists, and that’s where it’s going. You know we don’t like to use the word communist,” he went on.
“Jon Ossoff is an unhinged radical leftist. He’s not a senator. He’s weak on China. He promoted Chinese propaganda and then he failed to disclose his business ties to the Chinese Communist Party,” Trump said.
“[Ossoff] supports the insane Green New Deal, which would crush middle-class parents trying to raise a family. He will support the socialist takeover of American health care, which will lead to rationing, poverty and death,” Trump said.
“He wants to abolish cash bail. You see how that’s working in New York City, right? Not working too well. He called for ‘opening up the jails’ and he slandered our police officers as ‘gangers, thugs and bullies,’” he said.
“The choice for the voters of Georgia could not be more clear. Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock are fringe extremists who would wreck everything.”
“There’s no way we lost Georgia. That was a rigged election,” Trump said.
“I ran two elections. I won both of them, the second one much more successful than the first,” he said.
‘We can’t let this happen any longer,” he said. “We’re not going to have that tomorrow night where you’re leading and then all of a sudden, boom, it’s gone, like magic.”
“I’m going to be here in a year and a half and I’m going to be campaigning against your governor and your crazy secretary of state, I guarantee you,” the president told a crowd of supporters.
“I shouldn’t say this, I shouldn’t say this because I just don’t want you to tell anybody outside of this room, other than the millions of people watching,” he quipped.
“We have good support in the Senate, I wouldn’t say great, it could be better, but people will remember the people that don’t support us,” Trump vowed.
“I hope that Mike Pence comes through for us. Of course, if he doesn’t come through, I won’t like him so much,” Trump said.
From The New York Post:
Already over 3 million Georgians have voted early in the critical races which will determine whether Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) holds on to governing power or swaps roles with Schumer.
Perdue is being challenged by Ossoff, the 33-year-old CEO of an investigative television production company who has never held public office and would become the youngest US Senator in 40 years if he won.
