DONALD Trump declared Joe Biden "will not take the White House" and said he "won't like Mike Pence if he doesn't come through for us."
The outgoing president said that he would "fight like hell" to remain in-office during a rally in Dalton, Georgia on Monday night.
"We have to go. We have to go all the way. You watch what happens over the next couple of weeks," he told supporters.
"They're not taking this White House. We're going to fight like hell."
Trump said he visited the state to boost republican Senate candidates in Tuesday's runoff election.
However, a lot of his speech focused on the recent 2020 election which he claimed he won "by a lot."
Trump has pressed Republican lawmakers to formally object at a joint session of Congress on Wednesday that is set to confirm Biden's victory in the electoral college.
The outgoing president's attempts to overturn the election has split the Republican party, with some backing him and others turning against him in the face of democracy.
Vice President Mike Pence, who is under pressure to tip the results for Trump, will be closely watched as he presides in a ceremonial role over Wednesday’s joint session.
"I promise you this: On Wednesday, we’ll have our day in Congress," Pence said while himself campaigning in Georgia ahead of Tuesday’s runoff elections that will determine control of the Senate.
After starting his speech saying the presidential election was "rigged" and "there's no way we lost," he also turned to Pence as being a beacon of hope that would overturn his election loss.
Trump said: “And I hope Mike Pence comes through for us. I have to tell you. I hope that our great vice president comes through for us. He’s a great guy.
"Of course, if he doesn't come through, I won't like him quite as much," he joked.
However, Pence's role on Wednesday is mostly ceremonial and has no bearing on the actual certification of the election results.
Later in his thumping speech, Trump said he would campaign against the Georgia Governor Brian Kemp and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.
"Your governor and your secretary of state are petrified of Stacey Abram," Trump said while referring to them as Republicans in Name Only.
"What they've done to your state, these two people," Trump continued, "they say they're Republicans, I really don't think so."
Trump continued saying he would challenge Kemp in two years, saying he shouldn't make his plans so public.
"I shouldn’t say this, I shouldn’t say this because I just don’t want you to tell anybody outside of this room, other than the millions of people watching," he joked to the crowd.
His pledge came after a secret recording on Sunday showed Trump trying to convince Kemp and Raffensperger to "find" enough votes to declare him the winner in the state over Biden.
