President Trump Has Tweeted About the Election Results--Here's What He Had to Say

After campaigning for Republicans all across the country leading up to Election Day, President Trump called the results of the midterm elections a “tremendous success.”

"Thank you to all!” he tweeted.

The president then quoted Ben Stein, author of “The Capitalist Code,” about the Republican victories on Tuesday.

“‘There’s only been 5 times in the last 105 years that an incumbent President has won seats in the Senate in the off year election. Mr. Trump has magic about him. This guy has magic coming out of his ears. He is an astonishing vote getter & campaigner. The Republicans are unbelievably lucky to have him and I’m just awed at how well they’ve done. It’s all the Trump magic - Trump is the magic man. Incredible, he’s got the entire media against him, attacking him every day, and he pulls out these enormous wins.” Ben Stein, “The Capitalist Code””

He also agreed with a take by Fox News’s David Asman, who said: “How do the Democrats respond to this? Think of how his position with Republicans improves-all the candidates who won tonight. They realize how important he is because of what he did in campaigning for them. They owe him their political career.”

“Thanks, I agree!” he said.

“Received so many Congratulations from so many on our Big Victory last night, including from foreign nations (friends) that were waiting me out, and hoping, on Trade Deals. Now we can all get back to work and get things done!” he said. 

Republicans retained control of the Senate while Democrats took back the House. 

Update: "Those that worked with me in this incredible Midterm Election, embracing certain policies and principles, did very well," he later tweeted on Wednesday morning. "Those that did not, say goodbye! Yesterday was such a very Big Win, and all under the pressure of a Nasty and Hostile Media!"
