David Drucker's new book, "In Trump's Shadow: The Battle for 2024 and the Future of the GOP," published Tuesday, reveals that former President Donald Trump intentionally didn't do more to help Republicans in Georgia's special election.

"They didn't want to vote, because they knew they got screwed in the presidential election," Trump told Drucker, according to BusinessInsider.

Drucker spoke to Trump how the election may have turned out if he'd said something like, "despite some irregularities that deserved looking into, the state's voting system was reliable."

"I don't know," Trump said. "I did two very successful rallies — very successful rallies. I did say a version of that, but not as strongly as you said, because I was very angry with what happened there."

Republicans lost the Senate as a result of the Georgia senate races, but Trump blames Georgia Republican Gov. Brian Kemp for refusing to change the election results and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for refusing to allow $2,000 stimulus checks in the COVID relief bill.

Trump said that his obsession with the 2020 election "could be a problem" or "it could be an asset" as the GOP heads into the 2022 midterms, said the report.
