President Trump continued to comment on an upcoming special election for a vacant House seat in the Atlanta suburbs.

Trump’s ire toward Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff was not necessarily accurate — he hasn’t run as a liberal Democrat and hasn’t espoused raising taxes or the other views the president attached to him. But the fact that Trump has gotten involved points to the concern the White House and the GOP have about the race.

Democrats have coalesced around Ossoff and — if polls are accurate — have brought him close to the edge of winning the seat outright in Tuesday’s all-candidates primary by earning over 50% of the vote.

President Trump shared a link to his remarks while announcing an executive order titled "Buy American, Hire American" at Wisconsin tool manufacturer Snap-on Inc.

Trump on Tuesday ordered a review of a visa program that he said has undercut American workers, declaring his move a “powerful signal” of his administration’s commitment to “finally put America first.”

The order that Trump signed also initiates a separate review of government purchasing practices with the goal of more strictly enforcing “buy American” requirements that officials said have been diluted over time by exemptions.

President Trump credited himself with helping Republicans force the front-running Democratic candidate for an Atlanta-area House seat into a runoff.

Jon Ossoff, a 30-year-old former Democratic congressional aide and filmmaker making his first run for public office, easily finished in first place. But he narrowly missed the 50%-plus-one-vote mark that would have given him the seat outright.

Instead he will meet Republican Karen Handel, a former Georgia secretary of state, in the June 20 runoff.

President Trump again tweeted about a special election in Georgia's 6th Congressional District to replace the seat left vacant when Tom Price became his Health and Human Services secretary.

This time, Trump urged Republicans to come out and vote. Earlier in the day, he sent a tweet disparaging the front-runner, Democrat Jon Ossoff.

Ossoff is trying to escape a runoff by gaining a majority against 11 Republican contenders, and polls put him within striking distance of that goal.

President Trump tweeted an approximation of a quote from author Michael J. Knowles, who was interviewed Monday morning on Fox News' "Fox & Friends."

Knowles, who is also described as a contributor to the conservative blog the Daily Wire, appeared on the show to promote his book, "Reasons to Vote for Democrats."

After a brief exchange of banter, anchor Brian Kilmeade asked him, "Do you think, when it comes to foreign policy, the last eight years are being exposed right now?"

President Trump continued to comment on a special election in Georgia's 6th Congressional District to replace the seat left vacant when Tom Price became his Health and Human Services secretary.

The day before, Trump ripped media coverage of the race, as well as a separate special election in Kansas' 4th Congressional District that took place April 11. In a tweet, he suggested that news outlets had downplayed Republicans' win in Kansas and would do the same if the GOP won the Georgia election, which is set for Tuesday.

The front-runner in the Georgia race is 30-year-old Jon Ossoff, who is trying to escape a runoff by gaining a majority over 11 Republicans.

President Trump shared a link to the Rasmussen Reports daily presidential tracking poll, which put his approval rating at 50%.

Earlier in the day, Trump also retweeted a message from the Drudge Report linking to the same poll results.

There's some evidence to suggest that the Rasmussen result may be an outlier, as other recent polls have estimated Trump's approval rating to be lower.
