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.
