Donald Trump Jr. takes after his father in the fact he is not afraid to say how he feels. After being the latest member of the first family to test positive for the Coronavirus he sent a message to Georgians telling them to get out and vote for Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue. The battle for control of the Senate rests on the shoulders of two run-off election in Georgia between incumbents Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue against Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff.
In a recent tweet, President Trump’s son told people to ignore those telling Republicans not to vote for Loeffler and Perdue and urged them to come together and support the candidates.
That is NONSENSE.
IGNORE those people.

The comments come shortly after attorney Sidney Powell was removed from the Trump campaign legal team.
“Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own. She is not a member of the Trump Legal Team. She is also not a lawyer for the President in his personal capacity,” Trump Campaign Attorney Rudy Giuliani and Senior Legal Adviser Jenna Ellis said in a statement Sunday night.
Over the weekend, Powell suggested Republican leadership in Georgia shouldn’t be trusted and questioned the outcome of Loeffler beating former Republican Congressman Doug Collins in the special election. During an interview with Newsmax, Powell said she was going to “blow up” the state and claimed Republican Governor David Kemp was being bribed to rig election results.
“Georgia’s probably going to be the first state I’m gonna blow up,” she said.
Conservatives have focused their sights on Georgia and have swarmed the state to help volunteer for the Republicans and raise funds for their campaigns to ensure their victories. The senate race is set to be one of the most expensive in history as January 5 creeps closer ad closer. Republicans are doing everything to prevent Democrats from having control of the Senate and effectively making Minority Leader Chuck Schumer the new Majority Leader of the Senate.
