President Donald Trump argued late Thursday evening that overturning the will of the voters in the 2020 presidential race is the "best way" for Republicans to win the two runoff elections in Georgia.


"The best way to insure a [Kelly Loeffler] and [David Perdue] VICTORY is to allow signature checks in the Presidential race, which will insure[sic] a Georgia Presidential win (very few votes are needed, many will be found," Trump said, referring to a scheme to throw out votes in Georgia to overturn the will of the voters.

"Spirits will soar and everyone will rush out and VOTE!" Trump said, tagging Georgia's Republican Gov. Brian Kemp.

Republicans have worried that Trump's conspiracy theories about the vote being "rigged" in Georgia will dampen Republican turnout and could hand control of the Senate to Democrats.
