( – Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) took to X, previously known as Twitter, to respond to former President Donald Trump’s recent claims that next week he intended on presenting a report that included conclusive evidence to support his allegations.

In response, Kemp strongly refuted Trump’s claims about Georgia, saying that no evidence had been brought forward. He added that the state’s elections were “accessible, secure, and fair.” He asserted that this would be the case as long as he remained in charge.

Kemp proceeded to note that the country’s future would be decided in 2024 and it was important that this is where their focus should be on.

On Tuesday, August 15, Trump took to Truth Social to write that next Monday in a news conference in Bedminster, N.J. he would be presenting a report that will conclusively show that all of the charges against him in Georgia needed to be dropped and that they should exonerate him. However, just two days later, he posted on the platform saying he would be canceling the event. Reports previously stated that Trump’s lawyers had suggested he hold off on going through with it.

On Monday, charges against Trump and 18 co-defendants were announced in Georgia. Fani Willis, the Fulton County District Attorney released a 98-page indictment that included the charges against the 19 defendants. According to the document, Trump will be facing 13 counts, including racketeering, in connection to his alleged crimes. Willis also noted that the defendants had until August 25 to voluntarily surrender to the court and that she was hoping to hold a single trial for all defendants that would be scheduled within six months.
