Trump says he’s ‘ashamed’ to have endorsed Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp
President Trump said Sunday he regrets endorsing Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, a fellow Republican, saying he’s “done absolutely nothing” to advance Trump’s claim of election fraud in the Peach State.
In a telephone interview with Fox News, Trump pointed the finger at Kemp and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger for not helping him fight his loss in the state.
“Everything has to be approved by the legislature, and they had judges making deals, and they had electoral officials making deals, like this character in Georgia who’s a disaster,” Trump said of Raffensberger during the interview with anchor Maria Bartiromo.
“And the governor’s done nothing,” Trump said. “I’m ashamed that I endorsed him. But I look at what’s going on, it’s so terrible.”
Official results show that former Vice President Joe Biden edged out Trump in Georgia by nearly 13,000 votes following a recount of the ballot.
But the president has refused to accept his loss in several key swing states, including Georgia, and has repeatedly claimed that the election was rigged against him.
His comments Sunday come as the state prepares for a run-off election on Jan. 5 for two key Senate seats.
