"They will start next week, we will start vaccinating," said Mr. Trump. Earlier, the American company Moderna, as well as Pfizer, together with BioNTech, submitted applications to the US regulator to use their vaccine in the country.

During his speech in Georgia, the Head of the White House once again accused the Democrats of manipulating the last presidential election and said that he would admit defeat if he was not sure about the vote rigging. "If I had lost, I would have humbly admitted that I had lost <...> I would have gone to Florida, not worried, walking around and saying that I had done a good job. But you cannot admit defeat if they (Democrats) steal, cheat and falsify," the president added.

Donald Trump also accused the Democrats of their intention to build communism in the USA. "Socialism is just the beginning for these people. Then they will try to establish a communist form of government here," he said and urged his supporters to vote for Republican Party candidates in the Georgia senatorial elections.

A few hours before the rally, the White House asked the state authorities to call an extraordinary meeting of the local legislative assembly to discuss the results of the presidential election and the recount of votes. Mr. Trump lost in Georgia to Democrat candidate Joe Biden.

Donald Trump's headquarters are trying to challenge the election results in several states at once. The President himself has repeatedly stated that there were manipulations in the last vote. Several states have already conducted a recount and confirmed the defeat of the incumbent president and the victory of Joe Biden. According to media reports, the president's team has already spent almost $9 million to file lawsuits and pay for the recount.
