Donald Trump Jr. has urged his father to "fight to the death" over the presidential election when he reiterated his baseless allegations of electoral fraud and fraud after Trump's polls continued to slide in Pennsylvania and Georgia.
The president's eldest son spoke at a press conference Thursday at the Georgia Republican Party headquarters in Atlanta.
"I think the number one thing Donald Trump can do in this election is to fight each of these fights to the death so that we can have full transparency on them," said Don Jr.
"And everyone on the democratic side should welcome this unless they actually cheat."

Don Jr. questioned the counting process, accused the Democrats of ignoring voting deadlines, and claimed that boxes of invalid ballot papers "magically" appeared in Democratic states and counties after the vote was over.
"We know this is against the law, but you're facing a democratic judge and a democratic city with democratic control and it's fine," he said.
"I think the Democrats are used to it from a Republican party that had no backbone – you won't see that this time around."
He also claimed it was a "statistical impossibility" for Trump not to get a single vote in certain countries where up to 123,000 ballots were counted in favor of Joe Biden.
“Does anyone think this is possible?” He asked, calling for a resounding “no” from the crowd. “Because it is not so, it is a statistical impossibility. It didn't just happen once, it happened over and over again. & # 39;
"Americans need to know that this is not a banana republic and that very few people right now believe it is not," he added.
Don Jr. made similar comments in a tweet earlier that night saying his father should "go to all-out war" and "expose all the fraud that has been going on for far too long".

The tweet was quickly flagged by Twitter as misleading for an election or other citizen process
The tweet was quickly flagged by Twitter as "misleading" about an election or other citizen process.
He later responded to the warning label in a follow-up tweet by saying, “Twitter is censoring and of course flagging this. Why shouldn't we want to find out if these things exist?
“If they don't, we won't find anything and maybe people could regain confidence in the process that doesn't exist now. Why should they object to finding potential scams? & # 39;
His comments came moments after President Trump challenged the entire electoral process in an extraordinary White House statement that was shut down by television networks.
Trump claimed he was the victim of a "big media, big money, and technology" conspiracy over "historical electoral influence".
Trust me, I won: Donald Trump stands on the podium in the White House briefing room claiming he won
Trump claimed that if all "legal votes" were counted he would win the presidential election, accusing the Democrats of "corrupt" stealing the contest in a suddenly announced White House address as his Pennsylvania and Georgia vote results continued to slide.
On the podium in the briefing room, he spoke for 17 minutes, reading mostly from a script, and listing his complaints about Joe Biden's campaign, "repression polls" and "fraud".
Trump's lead in Pennsylvania is slipping, and Biden is sneaking up on him in Georgia, while Biden stays ahead in Nevada and Arizona. It only takes Biden Pennsylvania to win, bringing him to 273 votes on the electoral college or Nevada and Arizona to 270 votes. In contrast, Trump would have to secure North Carolina, Arizona, and Pennsylvania to secure 271.
Trump had not been seen in more than 36 hours after appearing in the East Room of the White House at 2:30 am Wednesday morning to cheering fans in MAGA hats to claim he had "won".
But he spoke after Biden asked Americans to be patient and calm while they waited for the final ballots to be counted in the presidential race – amid growing concerns over the long wait for results and concerns about public order.
