President Trump appeared in his first post-election interview on Fox’s Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo to speak about the election and his plans for the next several months.
The interview covered a wide range of subjects, but one of the more shocking moments came when Trump completely reversed his previously warm support for Georgia Governor Brian Kemp (R), declaring that he’s “ashamed” he ever endorsed the GOP leader.
Georgia was one of the most closely contested states in the presidential election, ultimately declaring Joe Biden the winner even after a by-hand recount ordered by the states’ GOP leadership.
President Trump slammed Kemp’s leadership throughout the entire fiasco, blaming the governor and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) for approving rules that allowed Democrats to run away with the election.
“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 declared, referring to Raffensperger’s defense of the Georgia elections process.
“And the governor’s done nothing. He’s done absolutely nothing,” Trump added. “I’m ashamed that I endorsed him. But I look what’s going on. It’s so terrible.”
After weeks of bitter infighting over the election certification process, Kemp signed off on the certification for Joe Biden last week, though he did issue a statement indicating that Trump could proceed with further legal challenges.
The — still-pending — results of the 2020 election have caused chaos within even the GOP, as legislators and leaders are faced with the choice of standing behind Donald Trump’s legal challenges of the results or pressuring the president to step down and allow Joe Biden to claim final victory.
