Trump told reporters that the Georgia system was fraudulent and actively prevented his supporters from voting in the state Senate runoff election.

Trump was asked, "If you don't believe the presidential election was legitimate when you believe it was stolen, what confidence do you expect voters to trust when they vote to vote for Kelly Loeffler or Purdue, for example?"
Trump gave the only answer Republicans fear most: "Well, I told him today that you were dealing with a very fraudulent system. I am very concerned about that. You are enormous people. Kelly Loeffler, David Perdue are enormous people, you should be in the Senate, but I told him today, I said listen, you have a fraudulent system, they have a system where flipping a switch or putting in a new chip is the course of history And you have to be very careful. I read this morning where Stacey Abrams collected 850,000 ballots. It's called reaping. You are not allowed to reap, but I understand the Secretary of State who really was – he is an enemy of the people The Secretary of State and whether he's a Republican are not. "
The reason Republicans at the top of Georgia's political leadership are behind Joe Biden's victory is because they don't like it when Republicans believe the president's false fraud claims and fail to appear in the Senate runoff election.
Trump attacked the mail-in voting and prevented his supporters from voting by email. These attacks could have cost him the election. He is now calling on his supporters not to appear and vote in two runoff elections in the Senate, which appear to be very close.
Donald Trump is so bitter about his loss and implicated in false election fraud conspiracies that he may turn the Senate over to Joe Biden and the Democrats in January.
