A private phone call on Nov. 10 revealed that President Donald J. Trump has become a “political burden” among the Republican Party as Georgia’s GOP faces an uphill battle to the finish for the Jan. 5 runoffs. The call, which included donors, was hosted by the National Republican Senatorial Committee and featured Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler. Veteran strategist Karl Rove, who is assisting with fundraising efforts, was also on the call.
The comments by the senators and Rove were shared with The Washington Post “by a person who provided a detailed and precise account of what was said by each speaker on the call. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity since they were not authorized to divulge the contents of the private discussion,” The Washington Post reported.
