President Trump: Senators Need To ‘Get Tougher’ and ‘Fight’ For the Republican Party

President Donald Trump targeted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in a tweet on Friday saying that the Republican Senate needs to toughen up and fight or there will no longer be a party left.

@senatemajldr and Republican Senators have to get tougher, or you won’t have a Republican Party anymore. We won the Presidential Election, by a lot. FIGHT FOR IT. Don’t let them take it away!” Trump exclaimed in a tweet.

On Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell warned his fellow senators to not object to the Electoral College votes cast on Monday.

The statements rapidly drew criticism from conservatives supporting President Donald Trump’s efforts challenging the 2020 election results.

The president also took aim at Georgia Governor Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, accusing them of standing in the way of efforts to verify the state’s elections.

On Thursday Raffensperger asked a judge to reject a GOP lawsuit seeking to enforce stricter rules for signature matching on mail-in ballots cast in the state.

Georgia state Republican GOP members have filed a lawsuit demanding that the state enforce stricter signature matching protocols to fight a growing concern of voter fraud. Control of the U.S. Senate will be determined by the results of a January 5 runoff election in Georgia.

In a motion to dismiss the case, Raffensperger said, “The relief sought in the Dec. 10 suit by the Georgia Republican Party would upend a crucial election that is already well underway, with more than 300,000 mail-in ballots having already been received.”
