Atlanta Mayor Makes Accusation Against Trump Without Evidence

The mayor of Atlanta, Keisha Lance Bottoms, is claiming that President Trump is behind a lawsuit filed against her.

There is only one problem. There is no evidence to back up her claim.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

“I don’t think it’s happenstance that this lawsuit came the day after Donald Trump visited Atlanta, and I pointed out that he was violating city law by not having on a mask at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport,” she said on Today. She went on to say she “absolutely” believes the governor’s lawsuit was brought at the bidding of the president.

Georgia governor Brian Kemp’s (R.) lawsuit against Bottoms and the Atlanta city council challenges her city-wide mask mandate as “void and unenforceable” and also targets other coronavirus restrictions such as closing dining rooms. Kemp has urged Georgians to wear masks to help contain coronavirus but said he will not implement a statewide order. In a statement, he said he filed the suit on behalf of business owners and their employees.

Bottoms, who is in quarantine after testing positive for COVID-19, hedged in a later interview on CBS This Morning when asked again if she thought Trump was behind Kemp’s lawsuit.

“I can’t speak to whatever conversations that they had, but I do know our governor is a Trump loyalist, and he seems to work very hard to please the president of the United States, and that is often at the expense of the people in our state,” she said.

Bottoms is considered a contender to be Joe Biden’s pick to be his running mate.

It’s the governor’s job to be governor and majors are in line under the governors. If she can’t figure out how to stop criminals destroying her city which is her job than the governor needs to step in. The governors can also remove mayor’s under them for dereliction of duty. Personally let the Soros paid for mayor drown in her own loyalty to communist Soros and not for being loyal to those who voted her in.

Fight back at these poor excuses who call themselves mayors. Use every tactic against them they use on us, make them squirm in their own vile. Make no apologies or surrender to any of their wants and lies.

Keisha Lance Bottoms can say whatever she chooses to say but that doesn’t mean that what she’s saying is based on any reality! Why Trump would want to file a lawsuit against her is a mystery in the making! She says there is a lawsuit against her but she has absolutely nothing to show for it! I suspect that Pres. Trump has more useful things to do than that and she wold be best off to forget the whole incident and get on with her life!
