President Donald Trump said Thursday that he would campaign in Georgia Saturday, December 5, to help Republicans in the Senate runoff election.

“I’m going on Saturday night. I’ll be in Georgia. We’ll have a tremendous crowd,” Trump told reporters after speaking to members of the Armed Forces in a teleconference call.

The White House clarified after Trump’s remarks that he would campaign in the state on Saturday, December 5.

Both Republican Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler face a runoff election on January 5, as Republicans try to hold on to their Senate majority.

“Maybe I’ll go twice. That’s very important that we win those races. These are great people,” Trump said.

Trump described Perdue’s Democrat opponent, Jon Ossoff, as a “lightweight” and Loeffler’s opponent, Raphael Warnock, as “either a communist or a socialist. I cannot figure that out yet.”

“This is not for Georgia,” Trump said.

Trump said that he warned Perdue and Loeffler of the voting system in the state of Georgia.

“Listen, you have a fraudulent system. You have to be very careful,” he recalled telling them.

Trump said that because of the coronavirus pandemic, he would probably host an outdoor rally in Georgia, most likely at an airport.

“They’re looking for the right site,” he said.

Trump disputed a reporter’s assertion that this was his last Thanksgiving in the White House.

“Well we don’t know what is last — if you look at what’s going on. … They’re finding tremendous discrepancies in the votes, and nobody believes those numbers. Those numbers are incorrect numbers.”

He predicted that more evidence of voter fraud would come out in a number of weeks.

“We’ll see what happens. Nobody wants to see the kind of fraud that this election has really come to represent,” he said.

Trump said he would continue fighting the election results, noting that former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris opposed his policy of “America First.”

“You can’t have somebody assume office and already they want to get rid of ‘America First.’ … You know why?” he asked. “Because China doesn’t want it.”

One reporter asked Trump if he would concede the presidential election if the electoral college voted for Biden on December 14.

“It’s going to be a very hard thing to concede because we know there was massive fraud, so as to whether or not I can get this apparatus moving this quickly, because time is not on our side. Everything else is on our side. Facts are on our side,” he said. “This was a massive fraud.”

President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump will remain at the White House for Thanksgiving this year.

“The President and First Lady will be celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday at the White House this year,” wrote First Lady Chief of Staff Stephanie Grisham on Twitter.

The two typically spend Thanksgiving at Mar-a-Lago with an elaborate celebration of the holiday while President Trump takes full advantage of his golf course in Palm Beach.

It is unclear who the Trumps will host for Thanksgiving at the White House as the president continues contesting the 2020 presidential election.

Many government officials and the Centers for Disease Control are advising Americans against hosting the annual event this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The annual Presidential Turkey Pardon, typically held a few days before Thanksgiving, is expected to take place next Tuesday.

The New York Post endorsed President Donald Trump both in an editorial and on the front cover of its print newspaper on Monday.

The editorial reads:

We can return to the explosive job creation, rising wages, and general prosperity we had before the pandemic. We can have economic freedom and opportunity and resist cancel culture and censorship. We can put annus horribilis, 2020, behind us and make America great again, again. We can do all this — if we make the right choice on Nov. 3.

The editorial praises Trump’s record of economic success, a change in foreign policy and free trade, and tougher immigration and law enforcement.

“He’s defended pride in American values against those who slander our entire nation as a racist enterprise,” it continues.

The editorial also defends Trump’s handling of the coronavirus but warns that former Vice President Joe Biden has no real solutions.

“Joe Biden has tried to make this election about the coronavirus, but it’s unclear he’d do anything different except trigger new lockdowns — a strategy the WHO now discourages,” according to the editorial.

The editorial criticized the president’s behavior on social media, such as Twitter.

“We can only counsel that a president who lowers the temperature rather than pouring gasoline on every fire will have a happier nation (and a higher approval rating),” the editorial reads.

But ultimately, the editorial endorsed Trump’s ability to get things done.

“The question is what matters more: words or actions? The media are enormously fixated on Trump’s tweets and extemporaneous remarks, never learning the lesson that most of the time, he is just riffing,” the editorial states. “In endorsing him, we’re choosing to focus on President Trump’s actions and accomplishments. He has kept his promises.”

President Donald Trump on Monday welcomed two Ohio High School students who were suspended for carrying pro-law enforcement and first responder flags onto their football field.

“They’re good looking kids. I want to congratulate you,” Trump said as the two students joined him on stage. “You’ve become famous.”

The two students, Brady Williams and Jarad Bentley, ran onto the field with a “Thin Blue Line” and a “Thin Red Line” flag before their game on September 11th. Officials from Little Miami School District suspended the students, but they were eventually reinstated after the story went national.

Williams is the son of a Sheriff’s deputy and Bentley is the son of a fireman.

“They’re going to go to Hollywood. They’re going to become famous right now,” Trump said.

When asked if they were still glad they did it, Williams replied, “Yeah, more than ever.”

Williams wore an NYPD hat and a thin blue line tie along with his suit while meeting the president, and Bentley wore a red tie.

The non-profit group Holiday for Heroes announced that they would award the two students with scholarships.

When President Trump asked them how their football team was doing, the replied shortly, “Could be better.”

Trump chuckled.

“You know what? You’re doing great. And everybody out here loves you and appreciates you,” Trump said as the crowd cheered wildly and chanted “U-S-A!”

President Donald Trump on Monday spoke about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi refusing to rule out impeachment to stop him from nominating a replacement for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court.

“Go ahead. I want them to do that … I’m the only guy in the world that could get impeached for trying to fill a seat on the Supreme Court,” Trump said during a rally with supporters in Ohio on Monday night.

In an interview with New York Times journalist Kara Swisher released on Monday, Pelosi said she had the power to impeach Trump again.

“Well, we can impeach him every day of the week for anything he does,” she said.

Pelosi was also asked Sunday by ABC News host George Stephanopoulos if she would rule out impeachment after she said that everything was on the table to stop Trump’s Supreme Court choice from being confirmed.

“We have our options. We have arrows in our quiver that I’m not about to discuss right now, but the fact is we have a big challenge in our country,” Pelosi replied.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) made a similar comment in a press conference on Sunday night with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY).

“I believe that also we must consider, again all of the tools available in our disposal and that all of these options should be entertained and on the table,” she said, as Schumer nodded vigorously in agreement.

During his rally with supporters, the president marveled at his opportunity to nominate a third justice to the Supreme Court.

“Think of that. Three. … A lot of presidents get none. We’ve had three,” Trump said. “It’s blowing their minds.”

He warned his supporters that Democrats would respond by packing the Supreme Court with additional justices if former Vice President Joe Biden was elected president in November.

“If Joe Biden and the Democrats take power, they will pack the Supreme Court with far-left radicals who will unilaterally transform American society far beyond recognition,” Trump said. “They will mutilate the law, disfigure the constitution, and impose a socialist vision from the bench that could never pass at the ballot box.”

President Donald Trump celebrated the news Wednesday that the Big 10 college football conference had decided to play games in October.

“Great News: BIG TEN FOOTBALL IS BACK,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “All teams to participate. Thank you to the players, coaches, parents, and all school representatives.”

After the Big 10 conference schools voted 11-3 to cancel sports for the fall during the coronavirus pandemic, President Trump pressed them to reverse the decision.

“Have a FANTASTIC SEASON!” Trump continued. “It is my great honor to have helped!!!”

The Trump campaign also released a highlight video celebrating the news.

Trump personally lobbied the Big 10 Commissioner Kevin Warren to reopen football this fall. On September 1, Trump announced negotiations to return were “on the one yard line” after speaking with the commissioner.

The president blamed Democrats for trying to close football during the coronavirus pandemic.

“I think the biggest headwind we have is that you have Democrats that don’t want to see it happen,” Trump said September 1. “But I think they want to play, and the fans want to see it, and the players have a lot at stake, including possibly playing in the NFL.”

He also blamed Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmore for preventing the University of Michigan from playing.

“Big 10 is looking very strongly at opening up their season, but we’re not getting any cooperation from the governor of Michigan,” Trump said last week during a campaign trip to Michigan.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday celebrated the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II in Wilmington, North Carolina.

The president designated Wilmington, North Carolina, as the first American World War II Heritage City, marking the city’s contributions to the war effort.

Trump spoke aboard the retired World War II battleship USS North Carolina.

He noted more than 360,000 Americans from North Carolina fought in World War II and acknowledged the support of over 20,000 workers from the North Carolina Shipbuilding Company in Wilmington.

“These brave Americans raced into the fires of hell to vanquish tyranny, dethrone fascism, and defend the American way of life. You have earned the eternal and undying gratitude of all Americans,” Trump said.

The president thanked World War II veterans in the audience for their contributions to the war effort.

“In America, we don’t tear down the past, we celebrate our heroes, we cherish our heritage, we preserve our history, and we build the future,” he added.

As the president spoke, a thunderstorm gathered above the ship while thunder sounded in the background.

“God is saluting you up there, I tell ya,” Trump said. “We might have to go a little quicker than we thought.” He ended his remarks after about 15 minutes of speaking.

The president gave a shout out to several World War II veterans who joined him for the speech; Greg Melikian, and North Carolina World War II veterans Paul Phillips, Bud Hampton, Norman Meares, and William Borer.

Medal of Honor recipient Hershel “Woody” Williams, 97, also joined the president, traveling with him on Air Force One for the trip.

“He’s 100 percent sharp,” Trump said. “I know a 78-year-old that is not so sharp.”

President Donald Trump traveled to Pennsylvania on Thursday to highlight former Vice President Joe Biden’s failure to help American workers.

“Joe Biden is no friend of Pennsylvania, He’s actually, for the reasons we just said, your worst nightmare,” Trump said. “Biden supported every single globalist attack on Pennsylvania workers.”

The president’s trip coincided with Biden’s Democrat convention speech on Thursday night.

“Slow Joe will speak at the Democrat convention and I’m sure that he’ll just knock them dead,” Trump joked.

He pointed to Biden’s support of trade deals like NAFTA, TPP, and the South Korea trade deal, as well as the Paris Climate accord and China’s entry into the World Trade Organization.

“For the last four years, we’ve been reversing Biden’s betrayals and delivering historic wins for the people of Pennsylvania,” he said.

Trump traveled to Old Forge, Pennsylvania, for the speech, just hours before Biden is scheduled to deliver his convention address on Thursday night. Old Forge is five miles from Scranton, where Biden was born before he moved to Delaware.

“He’ll remind us that he was born in Scranton, but you know he left like 70 years ago, right?” Trump said, recalling that Biden moved from the state as a boy. “He abandoned Pennsylvania. He abandoned Scranton.”

He reminded the audience that Biden had already endorsed the idea of eliminating fossil fuels and banning fracking, a major source of jobs in the state.

The president spoke outside a steel building with three blue semi-trucks behind the stage. A crowd of supporters was present for the speech, many of them wearing Make America Great Again hats.

Trump boasted that he had brought back manufacturing jobs to the United States, recalling that former President Barack Obama once cynically said that a “magic wand” was needed to bring the jobs back.

“Where’s the magic wand?” Trump asked. “Well, we have the magic wand.”

President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign filed a lawsuit challenging Nevada’s massive election law changes rushed through the state legislature on Sunday.

“This unconstitutional legislation implements the exact universal vote-by-mail system President Trump has been warning against for months, making it nearly impossible for every Nevada voter’s ballot to count,” Trump 2020 Senior Legal Advisor Jenna Ellis said in a statement.

The lawsuit against the bill AB4 was filed Tuesday night together with the Republican National Committee and the Nevada Republican Party.

“Democrats changed the rules of the game at the last minute to try and rig this election, RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel said in a statement, warning of risk to the integrity of the November election. “AB4 will destroy the confidence every voter deserves to have in our elections.”

The law requires the state of Nevada to mail every voter a ballot and even allows ballots cast after election day to count. It also allows other people to sign and return ballots on behalf of voters over 65.

Republicans warned of vote harvesting, by allowing multiple ballots to be mailed in one envelope and provides prepaid return postage.

“They overturned a bipartisan ballot harvesting ban to allow strangers to pick up a ballot for anyone, including the most vulnerable to COVID-19, and have thrown out many important safeguards,” McDaniel said.

President Donald Trump on Thursday at the White House promoted his successful push to dramatically reducing the regulatory burden on American industry.

“Before I came in office, American workers were smothered by a merciless avalanche of wasteful and expensive and intrusive federal regulations,” Trump said.

The president appeared on the South Lawn of the White House with a backdrop display of two Chevrolet trucks, one blue truck weighed down with weights symbolizing the regulatory burden, another red truck with the weights being lifted off by a crane that symbolized the Trump administration.

Lifting the regulatory burden

A post shared by Charlie Spiering (@charliespiering) on

“We must never return to the days of soul-crushing regulations,” Trump said, warning that if former Vice President Joe Biden won the election, leftist activists would work to quickly restore the onerous regulatory burden.

He described his efforts as the most dramatic regulatory relief campaign in history, noting that for every one new regulation, eight other regulations had been terminated.

“No administration in history has removed more red tape more quickly to rescue the economy and to protect the health of our people,” Trump said.

The president explained that his efforts were on behalf of American workers and their families.

Trump also shared estimations that his efforts to cut regulations saved the average household $3,100 a year. He added that while the previous administration added 16,000 pages to the regulatory burden, his administration removed more than 25,000 pages of regulations.

He also noted that the previous administrations added more 600 major new regulations, costing average Americans $2,300 a year.

The president singled out the removal of former President Barack Obama administration’s Waters Of The United States (WOTUS) rule that threatened the property rights of ranchers and landowners.

One rancher spoke at the event, thanking the president for cutting the WOTUS regulation.

“You have set us free,” the rancher told Trump. “Thank you.”

Trump said that the regulatory burden fell hardest on low-income Americans, including a “steep economic toll on African American communities.”

Some of the regulations Trump talked about removing were governing household appliances, including dishwashers, lightbulbs, and showerheads.

“My hair, I don’t know about you, it has to be perfect,” Trump joked as the crowd of supporters gathered for his speech laughed.
