It’s certainly no secret that discouraged ex-president Donald Trump has quite the knack for holding grudges. He’s not a good businessman, he’s a God-awful TV “star,” and don’t even get me started on him trying to run a country — but Lord knows he can hold a grudge with the best of the best of them.
In fact, Trump is kind of notorious for “punishing” those he feels have slighted or wronged him in some way, in an effort to get back and them and ensure that they understand, he will never forgive nor forget.
And now, Republicans in the southern state of Georgia are likely about to be rather angry when they find out that’s exactly what the former guy has done to them.
The new book from David Drucker, In Trump’s Shadow: The Battle for 2024 and the Future of the GOP, hit the shelves today, and within its pages, it reveals that former President Trump confessed to intentionally pulling back in the state of Georgia and not doing more to help the state’s Republicans in their special elections because he was angry and bitter that they wouldn’t do more to help him overthrow Biden’s presidential win.

Business Insider reports that Trump told Drucker, “They didn’t want to vote, because they knew they got screwed in the presidential election.”
Drucker spoke with the former guy about the possibility of how the election may have shaken out had Trump said something like, “despite some irregularities that deserved looking into, the state’s voting system was reliable.”
“I don’t know,” Donald Trump responded. “I did two very successful rallies — very successful rallies. I did say a version of that, but not as strongly as you said, because I was very angry with what happened there.”
Ultimately, the GOP as a whole lost the Senate last year as a result of the GOP Senate losses in Georgia — something Donald blames Georgia Republican Gov. Brian Kemp and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). He claims Kemp’s refusal to interfere in the state’s election and McConnell’s refusal to pass the $2,000 stimulus checks in the COVID relief bill resulted in the GOP’s Senate loss.
According to the report, Trump said that his obsession with the 2020 election “could be a problem” or “it could be an asset” as Republicans gear up and head into the 2022 midterms.
