Trump summoned a delegation of the battleground state's Republican leadership, including the state's Senate majority leader and House speaker, in an apparent extension of his efforts to persuade judges and election officials in the state to set aside Biden's 154,000-vote margin of victory and grant the president the state's electors.

Brian Kemp certified the state's slate of 16 presidential electors. In an announcement streamed online, Kemp did not clearly endorse the results.

Neither leader addressed this week's announcement that the USA planned to withdraw large numbers of troops from Afghanistan. Both New Delhi and Kabul deny these charges. "If you feel there is somewhere Pakistan can help, please let us know".
