    Making the most of his remaining time in the Oval Office, US President Donald Trump has focused much of his time on drawing more attention to the upcoming Georgia run-off elections, which will determine whether the US Senate will remain under Republican control or flip over to the Democrats.

    ‘Brother’ From Another Mother

    Late Tuesday, the commander-in-chief took to Twitter once again to highlight the state elections, lashing out at both Republican Gov. Brian Kemp and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a fellow Republican and proud Trump supporter, by calling the pair a “complete disaster.”

    Trump had more ire to share, critiquing Raffensperger by saying his brother “works for China” and adding that “they definitely don’t want ‘Trump.’” But here’s the kicker - while Raffensperger does indeed have a brother, he does not “work for China.” 

    Furthermore, while there is a man who bears the same surname and serves as the chief technical officer for a subsidiary of the Huawei conglomerate, he has no apparent relation to Georgia's secretary of state, according to the Daily Beast.

    T-minus 21 days until Inauguration Day, folks.
