On Saturday morning, President Donald Trump unleashed on Twitter as he called on Republican politicians to take action against alleged fraud in the 2020 election.
The president also accused Democrats of fraud in the 2020 election for dumping “hundreds of thousands of votes” in swing states.
“He didn’t win the Election,” President Trump said in response to a tweet from the New York Post opinion Twitter account. “He lost all 6 Swing States, by a lot. They then dumped hundreds of thousands of votes in each one, and got caught. Now Republican politicians have to fight so that their great victory is not stolen. Don’t be weak fools!”

While some Republicans appear to be throwing in the towel, others are making it clear that they won’t be giving up on the 2020 election anytime soon.
On Thursday evening, former Auburn Football Coach and Senator-Elect Tommy Tuberville spoke at a rally in Georgia where he defied Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, saying that he may be challenging the electoral college vote on January 6th.
“Folks, we got to grab a hold and hold on,” Tuberville said at the rally while referring to the upcoming Georgia runoff election. “We have no choice. Listen to me now. We have no choice but to win this election. They’re going to try to steal it.”
“They’re going to try to buy it. They’re going to do everything they can to lie, cheat, and steal to win this election, like they did in the presidential election.”
“It is impossible what happened, but we’re going to get that all corrected. I’m gonna tell you: Don’t give up on [President Trump]. Don’t give up on him.”
Tuberville was later asked what he would do in the upcoming weeks regarding the electoral college.
“Just wait. You’ll see what’s coming. You’ve been reading about it in the House… We’re going to have to do it in the Senate,” Tuberville said.
“Defying McConnell, Sen-elect Tuberville suggests he will challenge Electoral College, while stumping in Georgia,” Lauren Windsor reported on Twitter.
The Hill reported:
Sen.-elect Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.) indicated in a video that surfaced Thursday that that he thinks the Senate should support a challenge to the results of the Electoral College, which certified President-elect Joe Biden’s victory this week.
Tuberville suggested he would back a challenge Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) has vowed to bring against the vote. If a senator joins Brooks, it would require the House and Senate to debate and then vote on the issue.
“You see what’s coming. You’ve been reading about it in the House. We’re going to have to do it in the Senate,” Tuberville said in the video taken by liberal activist Lauren Windsor at a rally for Sens. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) and David Perdue (R-Ga.) in Georgia.
