In the rally, Ivanka was greeted by her father as she comes on stage. She then told the crowd, “It is so incredible to be back here with so many amazing hardworking Georgia families who are fighting for our children’s future – each one of you.” She continued and said, “And it’s so great to be back in Georgia with this warrior, my father, the people’s president,” as Trump grinned and the crowd cheered in the background.
Ivanka also acknowledged how his father is a “tireless and tireless champion” for all American voters. She also pledged that Trump would not stop fighting for everyone, alongside the two Republican Senate candidates, Loeffler and Perdue. Trump’s daughter claimed that these two senate candidates have to be sent back to the Senate before announcing a resounding message that patriotism is alive in Georgia. “And Georgia is going to keep freedom alive in America,” Ivanka said.
To close off her speech, Ivanka urged the people to turn out and vote, “Please vote,” she said. Before ending it with a statement saying, “Thank you, god bless you and God bless Georgia and god bless America and god bless our president.”

Trump and Ivanka boarded Marine One as they fly back to Washington DC after attending the rally.
The GOP rally that Ivanka attended with her father marked the last movie to have Republican supporters turn out and vote for Loeffler and Perdue in Tuesday’s runoff race.
Republican Senate Candidates Loeffler and Perdue were running against Democrats Warnock and Ossoff in the crucial runoff election on January 5. This election will ultimately determine which party takes control of the Senate.
In case Democrats win both of the seats, this will create a 50/50 split in the Senate. This scenario will give Democratic Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris the deciding vote. This will also leave Democrats in control of the House, Senate, and the White House.
Also, in the rally, Senator Kelly Loeffler reinforced her stand earlier in the day, stating that she would join 12 other Republican senators in challenging the Electoral College Count.

Loeffler said to the crowd, “On January 6, I will object to the Electoral College vote,” eliciting a chorus of cheers.
She added, “This president fought for us, we’re fighting for him. He put America first, he put the American worker first. He stood with our men and women in law enforcement. He restored our military.”
In addition to Loeffler’s stance, her running mate, David Perdue, also showed his support of the plan to challenge the election results. On Monday night, he wrote on Twitter, “I urge my colleagues to object. I stand with @realDonaldTrump. #GASen #gapol.”
Loeffler then turned her attention to her challenger in the runoff election, Democrat Raphael Warnock, with which she referred to as “radical liberal.”
“He attacked our police, our military. He spoke out against Israel, evangelicals, small businesses,” Loeffler said of Warnock.
She then ended her speech by saying that the Georgians have to “hold the line,” and get out and vote in the runoff election. She continued and stated, “We are the firewall to socialism. We have to get it done. I love you guys, thank you!'”
David Perdue was absent from the rally as he is in quarantine after being exposed to coronavirus through a staffer.
