President Donald Trump has teased a “big Trump Rally” in Georgia as he while reportedly considers plans to announce a second re-election bid as it becomes increasingly clear he has no path to overturn the results of the 2020 race.

The president said he would visit the state to support both Georgia Republican incumbents David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, who are running for re-election in the January special elections, describing the two GOP candidates as “fantastic people who love their Country and love their State.”
