President Trump Friday said he plans to travel to Georgia on Saturday to campaign for the state’s two Republican incumbent U.S. senators — both of whom face runoff challenges Jan. 5.

Trump also called the presidential election in the state a “total scam” but told his supporters that not voting for Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue would only play “right into the hands of some very sick people.”
