Trump Reacts to Stacey Abrams Running for Governor of Georgia: ‘I’ll Beat Her Again’
Former President Trump taunted Stacey Abrams after she announced she is running for governor of Georgia — again.
Abrams lost in 2018 and did not concede to Gov. Brian Kemp (R), claiming “voter suppression” and that she was discriminated for her race and gender. She even told the New York Times she actually won by turning out Democrat voters in record numbers.
“I’m running for Governor because opportunity in our state shouldn’t be determined by zip code, background or access to power,” Abrams said in her video announcement.
Trump was quick to respond calling her “Stacy ‘The Hoax’ Abrams.”
“I beat her single-handedly, without much of a candidate, in 2018. I’ll beat her again, but it will be hard to do with Brian Kemp, because the MAGA [Make America Great Again] base will just not vote for him what he did with respect to Election Integrity and two horribly run elections, for President and then two Senate seats,” Trump said in a statement.
“But some good Republican will run,” he added, “and some good Republican will get my endorsement, and some good Republican will WIN!”
Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) mocked Abrams in a tweet: “Wait, I thought you said you were already the Governor.”
