Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Trump says he is ashamed that he supported Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

President Donald Trump on Sunday lit into Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, expressing regret for supporting the conservative Republican, a statement that could potentially create major discord only weeks before two critical US Senate runoff elections in the state.

Trump, still smarting from President-elect Joe Biden winning Georgia in the November election, has repeatedly blamed the state's usage of Dominion Voting Systems machines for his defeat.

After weeks of publicly sparring with Georgia's GOP Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger over the election results, Kemp is Trump's newest Peach State target.

In a call-in interview with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo, Trump's first major television interview since the election, he decried unsupported claims of mass voter fraud and harshly criticized both Kemp and Raffensperger for utilizing Dominion voting machines in the state. Days after the election was called for Joe Biden, Trump shared a baseless conspiracy theory about Dominion Voting Systems, an election-software company that was used by battleground states, including Michigan and Georgia, as Business Insider's Rachel E. Greenspan reported. Trump had claimed that Dominion "DELETED" more than one million Trump votes across the US by switching votes from Trump to Biden in Pennsylvania and other states.
