President Trump made his return to the campaign trail Saturday, at a Georgia rally to support Republican incumbent Sens.

The rally was meant to encourage Republicans to vote in January, but the president spent a good deal of his time talking about the November election and repeating false claims that it was ‘rigged’ against him.

Saxby Chambliss, a Republican who represented Georgia for more than 20 years in both the House and the Senate until 2015, says he hoped Trump would have done more to address his supporters who are questioning whether they should vote on Jan.

‘He spent more time talking about his election than I think he should have.

And he should have just spent more time just emphasizing that people do need to vote on January the 5th.

Chambliss says Trump’s repeated attempts to undermine faith in the voting process could end up backfiring on the Republican party.

As for Trump’s continued false claims about the legitimacy of the November election, Chambliss says he doesn’t believe any wrongdoing took place in Georgia.

The longtime lawmaker says he doesn’t expect Trump to change his messaging around the November election, but that it’s an entirely separate issue from the runoff election in January.

‘He needs to do more to emphasize to people in Georgia that they need to get out and vote for the two Republicans on January the 5th,’ Chambliss says.
