U.S. President Donald Trump on Saturday night used a campaign rally for Georgia Republican senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue to promote the same baseless election fraud claims his lawyers have failed to prove in court.

Mr. Trump repeated the same discredited claims that the election was rigged, dead people voted, ‘illegals’ voted, the Dominion machines deleted or manipulated his votes.

Mr. Trump, however, seemed to acknowledge he lost the election, telling a huge crowd of supporters who were without masks or observing social distancing that losing Georgia would hand control of the country to the Democrats who will control the White House and the House of Representatives, and then the Senate.

The Senate runoffs in Georgia will take place on January 5, 2021.

Mr. Trump used the rally to show discredited videos of alleged voter fraud claims and also purported violence by the ‘radical left’.

Mr. Trump’s claims are mostly discredited and all his lawsuits to overturn the results of the election have been thrown out by judges.

In addition, states have already certified their results, officially handing Biden a win.

On December 14, electors would gather to formally announce President-elect Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 presidential election, and he will be sworn into office at noon on January 20, 2021.
