WASHINGTON – While touting Republican wins in the Senate – and ignoring his party’s losses in the House – President Donald Trump scheduled a news conference Wednesday to discuss the new politically divided landscape.
“We will be discussing our success in the Midterms,” the president tweeted.
In a series of other early morning tweets, Trump took credit for GOP victories in close races on Election Day, while blaming losses on Republicans who shunned his support.
“Those that worked with me in this incredible Midterm Election, embracing certain policies and principles, did very well,” Trump said in one tweet. “Those that did not, say goodbye!”
He added: “Yesterday was such a very Big Win, and all under the pressure of a Nasty and Hostile Media!”
In another post, Trump claimed he has has “received so many Congratulations from so many on our Big Victory last night,” including foreign leaders who want to talk new trade deals. He did not identify any leaders or specific trade agreements.
“Now we can all get back to work and get things done!” Trump said.
