President Donald Trump singled out top Republicans in Congress after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said that Joe Biden won the Nov. 3 election.
Aside from McConnell, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger, both Republicans, were targeted by Trump on Twitter.
The Epoch Times has not declared a winner of the presidential election until all legal challenges are completed. Now, Congress is scheduled to count the Electoral College votes on Jan. 6.
McConnell, on Tuesday, said Biden is the victor of the presidential contest in the midst of allegations of election fraud and other irregularities.
After McConnell's floor speech, Trump called on McConnell to keep fighting.
"Mitch, 75,000,000 VOTES, a record for a sitting President (by a lot). Too soon to give up. Republican Party must finally learn to fight. People are angry!" Trump wrote on Twitter to McConnell as he re-tweeted a Daily Mail article that included critical comments about the longtime Kentucky senator.
And on Friday, Trump called on Kemp, a Republican, to again call a special session of the Georgia Legislature.
It's unclear what the spokesperson meant, as the U.S. Constitution's Article II stipulates that Congress and legislatures are responsible for electors: “Each State shall appoint [electors] in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct.”
"When Governor Kemp took office in January of 2019, he placed his hand on the Bible and swore an oath to uphold the same laws and constitution of our state and nation which many brave men and women have died to defend. That is exactly what he has done and will continue to do," the spokesperson said.
The office of Raffensberger, a Republican, said earlier this week that Georgia will audit the signatures of Cobb County, a suburb of Atlanta.
