President Donald Trump appeared to mispronounce the word America during a rally in Georgia on Monday.

The event was meant to be a campaign rally to turn out the vote for Republican incumbent senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler ahead of the state’s run-off race.

They are facing Democratic challengers Jon Ossoff and Reverend Raphael Warnock.

But Trump focused on the 2020 presidential election, claiming again, without evidence, that he won and that it was rigged.

He also called on vice president Mike Pence to reject president-elect Joe Biden’s victory when Congress meets to certify the Electoral College result.

During his speech, the president appeared to struggle to say: “We have made America strong again.”

He then flexed his arm in front of the crowd.

Social media users reacted to the clip of Trump’s unusual pronunciation of ‘America’.

Others looked forward to inauguration day.

Trump also introduced newly elected Georgia congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, who has previously expressed support for QAnon-related conspiracy theories.

Control of the Senate is dependent on the election results in Georgia and could determine major policies and legislation in the next few years ahead.
