Georgia Democrat Just Taught ‘Misinformed’ Trump A Valuable Lesson… But Will He Listen?
Donald Trump had some harsh words to say to Jon Ossoff, who is running to fill the congressional seat which is vacated by Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price. On Monday Trump called Ossoff a “super liberal.”
Trump tweeted saying: “The super Liberal Democrat in the Georgia Congressioal [sic] race tomorrow wants to protect criminals, allow illegal immigrants and raise taxes!”

His comments come a day before a Georgia special election to fill the congressional seat.
But Ossoff did not stay quiet. He fired back at the president to teach him a lesson.
“While I’m glad the President is interested in the race, he is misinformed,” Ossoff said in a statement, according to multiple reports.
“I’m focused on bringing fresh leadership, accountability, and bipartisan problem solving to Washington to cut wasteful spending and grow metro Atlanta’s economy into the Silicon Valley of the South.”

This election is very important as Democrats are looking to steal a traditionally red seat to prove that voters don’t agree with Trump’s policies or direction.
