President Trump early Monday predicted that the GOP will perform “very well” in next year’s midterm elections, brushing off Republican Roy Moore‘s loss last week in Alabama.
“Remember, Republicans are 5-0 in Congressional Races this year. The media refuses to mention this,” Trump said.
“I said Gillespie and Moore would lose (for very different reasons), and they did. I also predicted “I” would win. Republicans will do well in 2018, very well! @foxandfriends.”

Trump in June touted Republican five wins in unique congressional decisions, evidently incorporating the two votes in the Georgia sixth Congressional District uncommon race, which brought about an overflow and eventually a Republican triumph. Rep. Jimmy Gomez (D-Calif.) of California’s 32nd Congressional District crushed another Democrat in a spillover prior this year, giving Democrats an uncommon race win.
Democrats managed the GOP a noteworthy blow a week ago in the Alabama uncommon decision for the seat cleared by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Sen.- choose Doug Jones (D-Ala.) turned into the principal Democrat to win a Senate situate in Alabama since 1992. Moore, who was at the focal point of a sexual offense outrage, still can’t seem to yield the race.
Jones’ triumph gives the GOP a razor-thin dominant part in the upper chamber and places the Senate in play for Democrats in one year from now’s midterm decisions.
