President Donald Trump’s son, Eric Trump, has warned both Republican Senators and Representatives that if they do not oppose the Electoral College results to certify the 2020 elections, “they will lose their political careers.”
In an interview with Fox News anchor Sean Hannity, Trump said, “I can tell you, Sean, any senator or any congressman, meaning on this side (Republican), that does not fight tomorrow—their political career is over because the MAGA movement is going nowhere … they will get primaried.”
My father has created the greatest political movement in American history.”

“I’m telling you they will get primaried next time around. And they will lose if they don’t show some backbone and show some conviction,” Eric added.
During a rally Tuesday, President Trump warned crowds in the state of Georgia that if Democrats win the Senate runoff election, they will transform America into a one-party country.
“They’ll make Washington, DC, and other liberal places the 51st, 52nd, 53rd states of the union, guaranteeing the radical left a permanent majority of the U.S. Senate and the House, and the electoral college,” the president said.
“It will make it really a one-party country, and the party will be the wrong party,” the president added during a rally in support of Republican Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue.
The president further warned that if the Democrats won in the Georgia runoff election, they would fill the Supreme Court “with crazed extremists, and I’m not happy with the Supreme Court.”
Today, 140 House Republicans and at least 12 Senators are expected to challenge the general election results once Congress convenes to count the Electoral College votes.
The measure was endorsed by Vice President Mike Pence, according to his chief of staff, Marc Short, who said he welcomes the efforts.
“The vice president welcomes the efforts of members of the House and Senate to use the authority they have under the law to raise objections and bring forward evidence before the Congress and the American people,” Short said.
For his part, Vice President Pence said on Jan. 4 in Georgia: “I know we all got our doubts about the last election. … I promise you, come this Wednesday, we’ll have our day in Congress. We’ll hear the objections. We’ll hear the evidence.”
For now, thousands of President Trump’s supporters who reject alleged voter fraud across the country are gathering outside of DC to demand election integrity for congressional certification.
