President Trump weighed in on the highly contested Georgia's Governors race while he was on board Air Force One on his way to Paris.
The President tweeted Friday morning, "@BrianKempGA ran a great race in Georgia – he won. It is time to move on!"

Kemp resigned Thursday as Georgia's secretary of state, removing himself from the ongoing count of the Governor's election he says he's already won.
Abrams maintained there are enough uncounted ballots to force a December runoff.
Kemp says it's less than 21,000 ballots and it is unclear if that is enough votes to force a runoff.
"Even if she got 100 percent of those votes, we still win," Kemp told reporters.
Abrams' campaign argues the total could be higher, and the secretary of state's office has been scant in sharing details as officials in Georgia's 159 counties keep counting.
You mean they are just now finding votes in Florida and Georgia – but the Election was on Tuesday? Let’s blame the Russians and demand an immediate apology from President Putin!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 9, 2018
