Donald Trump Jr. pressured potential 2024 GOP contenders to vocally support President Trump as the president continues to air often unfounded grievances about alleged voter fraud and accusations that Democrats “can try to steal the election from us” — and his push apparently quickly yielded results in the form of tweets from a handful of those Republican politicians.
“The total lack of action from virtually all of the ‘2024 GOP hopefuls’ is pretty amazing,” Trump Jr. said. “They have a perfect platform to show that they’re willing & able to fight but they will cower to the media mob instead. Don’t worry @realDonaldTrump will fight & they can watch as usual!”
Less than 90 minutes later, Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., directed his followers to support the legal fund the Republican party has put together for post-election challenges, as well as donate to Georgia Republican Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, who are potentially facing runoffs.
“We are not done. EVERY Republican needs to: 1-Support Trump’s legal fund,” Cotton said. “2-Support Sen. Loeffler vs. a radical who hates the police… 3-Support Sen. Perdue vs. a trust-fund socialist.”
