Can Donald Trump, 75, become president of the United States again? This is the question that has occupied the United States since its loss to Joe Biden (79) in November 2020. He himself believes that he never lost and that he was the victim of election rigging. Trump expects to be nominated by his party in the primaries and then prevail over Biden.
But in Georgia, the first step is now proving likely to be more difficult than the former president thinks.
Trump’s heavy defeat in Georgia
Georgia of all places. No Democratic candidate has won the White House race in 30 years. As of November 2020, Biden has won nearly 12,000 votes. Republican Governor Brian Kemp, 58, approved the decision.
Trump did not accept the result. He called Brad Ravensberger (67), who was in charge of the count in Georgia. A fellow party member urged a recount.

Resist party friends
The Washington Post published a video of the call. Here is the text of the conversation. Trump: “The people of Georgia are angry. The people of the country are angry. There’s nothing wrong with saying, you know, I’ve been told. You only need to find 11,780 votes.”
Ravensberger: “Well, Mr. President. The problem is that the data you have is wrong. I don’t agree that we won.” Trump then spoke to Ravensburger for minutes, but remained stubborn. Like Kemp does. So Trump lost in Georgia and had to leave the White House. Neither Kemp nor Ravensburger forgave their “betrayal.” A plan for revenge was hatched.
Trump’s candidates fail hard
The Republican primaries for governor were held in Georgia this week. So Trump traveled to the state in March and announced that he would nominate his candidate: “Before we can defeat the Social Democrats and the Communists in the fall, we must first beat Rinus in the primaries. Here in Georgia, we are going to remove Reno Governor Brian Kemp and replace him with a brave fighter: David Perdue. “.
Purdue may be fearless. But he had absolutely no chance. Kemp received more than 70 percent of the vote and could now challenge Democratic challenger Stacey Abrams (48) in November. It wasn’t Trump’s only defeat.
Ravensberger, Georgia’s acting Secretary of the Interior, was ahead of Judy Hayes, 62, who was also sent into the race by Trump. It is also clear, with more than 50 percent of all votes. That was even more surprising, because a year ago Ravensberger had no chance. But Republican voters still seem to favor him over Trump’s nominee, who ran with the same slogan as David Perdue: That the 2020 presidential election was stolen.

Mike Pence as an opponent in the presidential election?
Trump also returned from Georgia with a third bankruptcy. This might make him think more about outright election bankruptcies: Kemp received support from Mike Pence (62). Former Vice President of Trump. At the latest, he is also said to have ambitions for the presidency. “Whoever votes for Kemp is sending a deafening message across America that the Republican Party is the party of the future,” Pence said Monday. But he also meant: a party without Trump. Pence broke up with Trump in February when he said Trump was wrong in his allegations of vote rigging. And perhaps worst of all for Trump, he described his attempt to reverse his 2020 election defeat by any means necessary as “un-American.”
Georgia is Trump’s clearest warning yet that he may be further away from his goal of becoming president again than he thought. But not the first. Because otherwise, not everything will be to his liking in this pre-election season. Republicans are currently nominating candidates across the country for fall congressional and gubernatorial elections. Trump supports some of them to increase his power in the party. But not everyone wins, especially in the struggle for the seats of the ruler, things are difficult.
Trump is not an absolute leader.
This fits: «New Zealand» Elaine Kamark quotes from the Brookings Institution think tank, That led to a provisional assessment of the primary elections endedMore than 53 percent of Republican candidates post campaign materials on their websites that do not refer to Trump or Trump. More than half have turned away from Trump. According to Kamark, this means: “Trump is a major player in the Republican Party. But he is not an absolute leader.”
But experts also say Trump still has the best chance of becoming the Republican presidential candidate. But with Mike Pence, a serious opponent has now put himself on the offensive for the first time. Others may come to the same conclusion when they see the results in Georgia. The question of whether Trump can be reelected president can then be answered with a “no” in the Republican primaries for the highest office in the United States, and not just in the fight against Biden.
