During a rally held in Dalton, Georgia on Monday night, President Donald promised a crowd of supporters that Democrats are not “taking this White House,” stating that “When you win in a landslide, and they steal it, and it’s rigged, it’s unacceptable.”
“If the liberal Democrats take the Senate and the White House, and they’re not taking this White House. We’re gonna fight like hell, I’ll tell you right now,” Trump said.
“You know, I was telling Kelly [Loeffler] before, you can lose and that’s acceptable, you lose you lose and you go, wherever you’re going, and you go and say ‘Maybe I’ll do it again sometime or I’ll get back to life’,” Trump continued. “But when you win in a landslide, and they steal it, and it’s rigged, it’s not acceptable. It’s not acceptable.”
Trump’s remarks were met with roars of approval from the crowd.
President Trump went on to reference Vice President Mike Pence, warning that he “won’t like [the Vice President] quite as much” if he does not fight to secure a free and fair election on Jan. 6:
President Trump brought up the challenge to the Electoral College votes, and the Republicans “fighting for [the American people]” in Congress, along with the power that Vice President Mike Pence has to stop the certification, as noted extensively by National File.
“I hope Mike Pence comes through for us, I have to tell you. I hope our great Vice President comes through for us, he’s a great guy,” President Trump told the crowd. “Course, if he doesn’t come through, I won’t like him quite as much!” he said to laughter.
“Mike is a great guy. He’s a wonderful man, and a smart man, and a man that I like, a lot,” President Trump continued. “But he’s going to have a lot to say about it. You know one thing with him, you’re going to get straight shots – he’s going to call it straight.”
The crowd frequently broke into chants of “Stop the steal!” throughout Monday’s night rally.
