President Donald Trump arrived in Georgia with Ivanka for a rally in Dalton ahead of Tuesday's Senate run-off races, amid calls for him to be investigated over the leaked phone call where he demanded the Georgia Secretary of State 'find' votes to overturn the presidential election.
The president was seen walking across the South Lawn Monday night with his daughter and adviser Ivanka Trump to board Marine One for a short trip to Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland and then on to Dalton for Monday night's rally.
The rally marks the last-ditch attempt from Republicans to drum up votes for GOP candidates Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue ahead of Tuesday's crucial Senate runoff race, which ultimately decides which party takes control of the Senate.
It comes hours after President-elect Joe Biden held a rival campaign event in Atlanta, Georgia, Monday afternoon to try to give a final campaign boost to the Democratic candidates Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock.
Doubts had been raised earlier Monday over whether Trump would still attend Monday's rally, as calls mount for a probe into his weekend phone call with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
Raffensperger leaked Saturday's phone call and the conversation was first released by the Washington Post Sunday, appearing to show the president desperately trying to pressure the official to 'find' votes to turn the state red.
'All I want to do is this: I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have,' Trump says on the call. 'There's nothing wrong with saying, you know, that you've recalculated.'
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis said Monday he was ready to launch an investigation into 'felony wrongdoing' in relation to Trump's demands and two House Democrats have written to FBI Director Chris Wray calling for the agency to launch an investigation.
Meanwhile Republicans have voiced concerns that his actions may have scuppered his own party's chances of taking the Senate.
It comes as fears were already growing within the Republican party that Trump was turning off voters after he claimed the runoffs were 'illegal' Saturday.
