David Purdue and Kelly Offer who face Democrats Jon Scoff and Raphael Warlock in special elections on Jan. 5. With the GOP holding 50 Senate seats and Democrats 48, victories by Scoff and Warlock would give Democrats unified control of the White House and Congress, with Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's running mate, as the tie-breaker under a new Biden administration.
Trump ’s campaign on Friday filed a major lawsuit against Georgia election officials, claiming more than 300,000 ballots were cast illegally in the state. Brian Kemp certified the state's election results.

Newsman TV presents live coverage of President Trump's rally in support of Republicans in the upcoming Georgia Senate runoff races on Saturday, beginning at 6:30 p.m. ET. This exclusive presentation will be hosted by Newsman's Rob Schmitt from Valdosta. Officials with the Allentown School District in Pennsylvania have suspended a teacher who took part in the Wednesday pro.
The crowd was largely protesting”voter fraud,” to “show support for our President” and to “preserve the integrity of the vote,” according to various event pages. Trump has refused to concede and leveled allegations of voter fraud to claim the election was stolen from him.
“I wanted to celebrate Biden’s great victory and to be honest, troll these Trump supporters,” he said, laughing. Near Union Station, Trump supporters and counterprotesters fought, and one man was left bloodied.
At Black Lives Matter plaza, just a block from the White House, Trump supporters and counterprotesters faced off in a number of tense confrontations. Liberals chased conservatives from the plaza, some tearing flags from Trump supporters and screaming at them on megaphones to “get out” of the city.
In another altercation, a Trump supporter used a long white PVC pipe and swung at counterprotesters after someone swiped his hat. Police increased their presence and were using bikes to make a protective line around Trump supporters trying to leave the area.
Several people vandalized with graffiti a truck with a MAGA hat on its dashboard outside The Capitol Hilton and slashed one of its tires. Although the rally was not considered an extremist event, it caused a buzz in right-wing circles on social media including Parker and Telegram, according to the Anti-Defamation League.
Much like the social media site Gab, Parker has quickly attracted the extremist crowd in addition to self-proclaimed center-right conservatives. Open Legal, vice president for the Anti-Defamation League's Center on Extremism, told USA TODAY he doesn't believe the event would be a public safety threat.
Trump indicated Friday that he may stop by the rally, but he left the White House early Saturday to go golfing. As the presidential motorcade headed out to Pennsylvania Avenue and did a circuit of Freedom Plaza, hundreds of Trump supporters lining both sides of the streets applauded, cheered, waved and whistled.
“And by the way, last night they didn’t do a bad job,” he added, referring to runoff elections in Georgia deciding control of the Senate. Trump spoke from a stage framed by signs for the “Save America March,” at a podium flanked by American flags fluttering in a chilly DC breeze.
He gestured early in the speech to the Washington Monument, saying his crowd of supporters stretched across the mall and vowing that the icon would not become another victim of cancel culture. Trump ’s rally came as Congress was set to certify the results of the 2020 presidential election, which the president has repeatedly claimed are marred by widespread, organized fraud, without providing evidence.
Thousands of supporters traveled from across the nation for the event, with local law enforcement and congressional security bracing for possible unrest. A judge earlier this week barred Henry “Enrique” Barrio, leader of the far-right Proud Boys group, from the nation’s capital, citing accusations against him that he vandalized a Black Lives Matter banner at a historic church and was arrested packing high-capacity firearm magazines.
Right Side Broadcasting Network- Trump Rally Live Streams and News In a desperate effort to overturn the results of a free and fair election that he lost by more than 7 million votes, President Donald Trump on Wednesday asked supporters at a rally in Washington, D.C., to turn a blind eye to reality.
Should Pence decide not to show, then the president pro tempore of the Senate, currently Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), would oversee the certification. Trump repeatedly threatened members of his own party Wednesday, calling Republicans who chose not to support the ruse “weak” and promising to campaign against them.
Running through a list of swing states he lost, Trump returned to the same false claims he and his attorney Rudy Giuliani have repeated tirelessly since the Nov. 3 election, all of them thrown out by the courts. Like his own loss in the general election, Trump dismissed the results in Georgia as fraudulent yet presented no evidence beyond conspiratorial assertions.
