Posted: Jun 21, 2017 8:25 AM

President Trump took to Twitter Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning to praise Republicans Karen Handel and Ralph Norman, both of whom won their special elections in Georgia and South Carolina, respectively. He also took a shot at Democrats, noting that all the money spent and “fake news” didn’t pay off. He even offered them some advice. 

“Congratulations to Karen Handel on her big win in Georgia 6th. Fantastic job, we are all very proud of you!” he wrote.

“Ralph Norman ran a fantastic race to win in the Great State of South Carolina's 5th District. We are all honored by your success tonight!” he added.

Republicans, Trump said, are now 5-0.

“Well, the Special Elections are over and those that want to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN are 5 and O! All the Fake News, all the money spent = 0,” he tweeted.

The president then followed up Wednesday morning, offering the Democrats some advice: “obstruction doesn’t work!”

“Democrats would do much better as a party if they got together with Republicans on Healthcare,Tax Cuts,Security. Obstruction doesn't work!” he said.
