Former President Donald Trump gave Democratic politician Stacey Abrams an unlikely cosign at a recent rally.
Trump admitted that Abrams would most likely be a better Georgia governor than incumbent GOP Governor Brian Kemp during a recent speech.
“Of course, having her [Abrams] I think might be better than having your existing governor, if you want to know the truth,” Trump told rally attendees in Perry. “Might very well be better.”
“Stacey, would you like to take his place?” he added. “It’s OK with me.”
Supporters of Abrams are hoping that she challenges Kemp in the next elections.
Trump has been gunning for Kemp following the November 2020 presidential election. It was Abrams who helped Georgia flipped blue for President Joe Biden. Trump then tried to press Kemp to overturn the election decision, but Kemp refused.
The day prior, Trump told the “John Fredericks Radio Show”:
“Kemp is a disaster. He’s a disaster. He talks about elections…He did everything he could to make sure we lost the election. He was terrible,” Trump said. “Brian Kemp has not done the job,” he continued, “far worse than not doing the job.” Trump went on to assert that Kemp is like “a Democrat in disguise.”
In November 2020, Trump said he regretted endorsing Kemp, a fellow Republican.
“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 said of Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger during the interview with anchor Maria Bartiromo. “And the governor’s done nothing,” Trump said. “I’m ashamed that I endorsed him. But I look at what’s going on, it’s so terrible.”
Abrams, a voting rights activist, grassroots organizer and former Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate, is also the author of the nonfiction books “Lead from the Outside” and “Our Time Is Now.”
