President Trump announced Wednesday morning he will hold a post 2018-midterm election press conference from the White House.
I will be doing a news conference at The White House - 11:30 A.M. Will be discussing our success in the Midterms!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 7, 2018
Last night, Democrats regained their majority in the House after ousting Republicans by 26 seats. In the Senate, Republicans gained four seats in Indiana, Florida, North Dakota and Missouri.
Those that worked with me in this incredible Midterm Election, embracing certain policies and principles, did very well. Those that did not, say goodbye! Yesterday was such a very Big Win, and all under the pressure of a Nasty and Hostile Media!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 7, 2018
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders deemed the night a success for the President. Going into the results she touted President Trump's rigorous campaign schedule.
"As President, Donald J. Trump has headlined an unprecedented 50 rallies—30 in the last two months alone—and he has campaigned for dozens of candidates at all levels of government. The President has energized a staggering number of Americans at packed arenas and in overflow crowds at rallies across the country," Sanders released in a statement. "Under President Trump’s leadership, the Republican National Committee has raised more than a quarter billion dollars, fueling an extraordinary ground game geared toward defying midterm history and protecting the GOP’s majorities. He has made the choice clear to the American people: Tonight, we can continue down the path of American prosperity and security or we can go backwards. The President and First Lady look forward to watching the results come in with friends and family in the White House residence.”
