  Fact check: Trump's campaign page has control over his designation as 'political candidate' Trump has been designated as a political candidate long before the election and Facebook is not in charge of determining a page's titleMany supporters are criticizing Facebook, claiming the platform removed Trump's title of "President" on what many describe as his "official" Facebook page and downgraded it to "Political Candidate.

President Donald Trump is pushing contradictory messages about Georgia , calling the state's election system fraudulent at the same time he is urging his supporters to turn out for Republican Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue in twin runoff races that will determine control of the US Senate.

Citizen free press. Trump supporters in Georgia consider boycotting election… When asking georgians whether they will vote for these two the answer is usually ‘what’s the point’. We all know that the election was rigged , but we also know the system was rigged in such a way to leave little to

McDaniel's Saturday campaign stop in Marietta, Georgia, appeared to backfire as Trump supporters who have adopted the president's conspiratorial accusations about "voter fraud" asked why their vote even matters. The scene doesn't bode well for Republicans as they look to hang onto a thin U.S. Senate majority that hinges on prevailing in two January 5 runoff elections. Both incumbent Georgia GOP senators, David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, face stiff challenges from Democratic candidates Reverend Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, respectively.

Georgia FIRES county election clerk after 2,600 ballots were found

  Georgia FIRES county election clerk after 2,600 ballots were found ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia´s top elections official said Friday that he will certify that Joe Biden won the state´s presidential election after a hand tally stemming from a mandatory audit affirmed the Democrat's lead over Trump.

On Friday we reported that President Trump spoke to workers at a Whirlpool factory in Clyde, Ohio, to tout his efforts to restore America’s manufacturing base. During the speech Trump also spoke about his work to reform prescription drug pricing by the pharmaceutical industry.

Yes, tell your friends in Georgia to vote , and If you want to reach even further, consider contributing Fair Fight. Fair Fight has been credited with increasing Georgia voter turnout by hundreds of Slightly less likely is that it is a liberal group trying to sow the seeds in the minds of crazy Trump supporters .

One baffled Trump supporter at the event asked how Republicans turned out in such "crazy numbers," but somehow Joe Biden still defeated the president. He claimed "machines are switching the votes," a baseless accusation lifted directly from Trump.

McDaniel was forced to defend the U.S. election system despite Trump's unfounded claims of widespread voter fraud. The GOP chairwoman found herself pushing back against the Republican president's messaging, telling state GOP voters to worry about election fraud issues "later," or at least to hold their concerns until after the all-important U.S. Senate runoffs.

"Why should we vote in this election when we know it's already decided?" asked one demoralized Marietta voter.

Fact check: Claims on Clarence Thomas, Supreme Court and role in election are partly false

  Fact check: Claims on Clarence Thomas, Supreme Court and role in election are partly false Partly false posts claim Joe Biden tried to destroy reputation of Clarence Thomas, who is 'in control' of Supreme Court, which will decide election.In fact, amid the confirmation fight over Justice Amy Coney Barrett in September, Trump told reporters, "I think this will end up in the Supreme Court, and I think it's very important that we have nine justices," per USA TODAY.

When asked about his previous baseless claims of fraud in Georgia during a Thanksgiving Day press conference, Trump said he was In particular Trump ’s comments have spurred conspiracy theories that the state’s electoral system is rigged and prompted some of his supporters to make calls for a

Sidney Powell, best known for representing Trump ’s former aide General Michael Flynn, claimed that Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic software were involved in deleting Trump votes and “injecting” votes for Biden, alleging that they processed votes in Germany and Spain and that they

"It's not decided. This is the key—it's not decided," McDaniel told the irate crowd of Republican Trump supporters. The president lost the state by more than 12,000 votes in the November 3 election against Biden. "So if you lose your faith and you don't vote and people walk away—that will decide it," she warned attendees.

McDaniel was hit with a barrage of questions directly pertaining to Trump's ongoing accusations of voter fraud, which he has extended to several other states, including Michigan and Pennsylvania, where he lost by tens or even hundreds of thousands of votes. Trump supporters present at the event appeared apathetic about the upcoming vote, saying the expansion of "money and work when [the election] is already decided" seems pointless.

Trump warned Americans that "a lot of things" are set to change in terms of the presidential election outcome, despite state after state rejecting his campaign's legal challenges. McDaniel's appearance in Marietta on Saturday occurs in the same Cobb County where the local GOP chairman said Thursday they had not even signed on to attorney Sidney Powell's typo-filled lawsuit contesting the election results.

Fact check: Trump lawyer Sidney Powell falsely stated he won election 'by a landslide'

  Fact check: Trump lawyer Sidney Powell falsely stated he won election 'by a landslide' A meme correctly quotes onetime Trump campaign lawyer Sidney Powell. But her assertion that he won the election "by a landslide" is false.“We are not going to be intimidated. We are not going to back down. We are going to clean this mess up. President Trump won by a landslide and we are going to prove it. We are going to reclaim the United States of America,” reads a Facebook meme.

If you add Georgia and North Carolina, both of which are obvious Trump wins, far beyond the margin of any Biden recovery, that puts Trump at 245 electoral votes . Trump is currently leading in Pennsylvania, and it looks like a victory that will be aggressively defended by the President and his

Supporters of President Trump gathered outside the Fairfax County Government Center with flags Sean Rastatter, a vice chair at the Fairfax County Republican Committee who was at the polling “To me, this went beyond campaigning and they should have been removed.” The first two days of

Nonetheless, Trump has lashed out against several Georgia state lawmakers including Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who he called "the enemy of the people," a phrase used frequently under Joseph Stalin Soviet Union.

"Kemp is a crook!" one upset Trump supporter shouted at McDaniel Saturday, a reference to the state's Republican governor, Brian Kemp, who is also a very public backer of the president.

Biden holds a sizable electoral vote margin of victory, and he is pushing ahead with his transition into the White House on January 20. McDaniel's visit to Georgia in support of Republican senators Loeffler and Perdue comes as Trump himself announced his own visit to the state ahead of the runoff races. The president said Thursday he plans to visit the state this coming week to campaign for Perdue and Loeffler.

Longtime Republican strategist Karl Rove noted on Fox News Saturday that if Democrats capture the seats, they "don't need to change the rules" in order to undo Trump's 2017 tax cuts, which were written into law by the GOP majority. Instead they can use the Budget Control Act of 1974 and a move labeled "budget reconciliation" in order to do it with the simple majority of 50 senate votes plus Vice President Kamala Harris.

McDaniel pointed out to campaign stop attendees that Perdue was leading Ossoff by more than 88,000 votes, urging GOP voters to ensure they get out and vote in such a close race. Under Georgia state laws, a two-person runoff is held when no candidate receives more than 50 percent of the vote, which occurred in the November 3 contests.

Trump, Pence to campaign in Georgia as Senate runoff turnout concerns grow among GOP .
Mike Pence and President Donald Trump's rallies for Georgia's senators will be against a backdrop of growing concerns about GOP turnout in the Senate runoff election. "So many Republicans live and die by what Trump says, and so if he says that the system's not to be trusted, the machines aren't registering the votes properly, then that'll increase the number of people who will believe it. And the logical next step is, OK, so why bother to go vote?" said Charles Bullock, a political science professor at the University of Georgia and an expert in Southern politics.
