Donald Trump’s two sons have rebuked Republicans for failing to back the president as he struggles to win re-election.
Trump’s eldest son, Don Jr, accused the party of being “weak”. His brother Eric warned: “Our voters will never forget you if your [sic] sheep!”
Senior Republicans such as Utah Senator Mitt Romney and Maryland Governor Larry Hogan have warned the Trump campaign against undermining the democratic process.
Don Jr took to Twitter to dish out his ire for those who may be eyeing up a presidential run in 2024.
“The total lack of action from virtually all of the ‘2024 GOP [Republican] hopefuls’ is pretty amazing,” he wrote.
“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!”
The younger Trump later told supporters in Atlanta, Georgia – one of the key battleground states where votes are still being counted – that his father was right to mount legal challenges to the vote-counting process.
“I think the number one thing that Donald Trump can do in this election is fight each and every one of these battles to the death,” he said.
Meanwhile, the margins have narrowed in the counts in both Pennsylvania and Georgia, as votes continue to be tallied and Democratic nominee Joe Biden moves closer to the 270 electoral college votes needed for victory. No new counts are expected from Nevada or Arizona until Friday.
Secret service increases security around Joe Biden
