President Trump remains the single most powerful force in American politics today and last night’s election results further confirmed that fact as Trump-supported candidates racked up wins across the nation despite millions of dollars pouring in to defeat them.
Reaction from liberals was predictably negative as they wailed out their frustrations against a lack of Democrat leadership, Green Party candidates, and some even going so far as to suggest the Russians were to blame.
Meanwhile, President Trump sent out a message warning Democrats that he was making time to continue campaigning for Republican candidates (many who are well outside the party mainstream) in the coming months to ensure a Red Wave come November:
The Republicans have now won 8 out of 9 House Seats, yet if you listen to the Fake News Media you would think we are being clobbered. Why can’t they play it straight, so unfair to the Republican Party and in particular, your favorite President!
