President Donald Trump cried out for Republicans to help his battle against an apparent election loss now that their Senate majority is no longer a lock.
Senate Republicans had largely stayed away from the president’s election results, which appear to favor Joe Biden with just a few electoral votes left on the board, but reliable Trump allies like Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz have rallied to his defense now that both of Georgia’s Senate seats seem headed for a runoff.
“So now the Democrats are working to gain control of the U.S. Senate,” Trump tweeted at 2:04 a.m. EST, “through their actions on John James, David Perdue, and more. Would End the Filibuster, ‘Life’, 2A, and would Pack and Rotate the Court. Presidency becomes even more important. We will win!”

Other social media users noticed the president’s seeming desperation in the middle of the night, while election officials continue counting votes.

Trump is going to have a complete MELT DOWN when he sees Biden roll past him in Pennsylvania in a matter of hours. And then Trump is toast! Biden will have >270 and will be the next president of the USA.

If you hadn't screwed up so massively the last 4 years you'd have more votes 🤷♂️ @Perduesenate is also the same guy who made a million selling off his stock before telling the rest of us about the seriousness of the pandemic. Also probably why he lost 🤷♂️
Dont suck = Keep your job

As a President of the USA you need to have a bit more decorum, if you don’t understand the word it means “behaviour in keeping with good taste and propriety”. The whole world is watching you and we are embarrassed for the American people. They don’t deserve this.

Believe me, if we could “rig” the presidential elections you never would’ve been elected in the first place!
