Despite losing the House, US President Donald Trump has remained upbeat on Twitter.
In a series of tweets, the President has quoted statements from high profile champions of his.
Quoting Ben Stein, “The Capitalist Code” Trump tweeted: “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.”
Tweeting a statement from Fox News Anchor David Asman Trump 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!”
