President Trump says he knew Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore would lose in Tuesday’s special election — and that his prediction was correct.
“The reason I originally endorsed Luther Strange (and his numbers went up mightily), is that I said Roy Moore will not be able to win the General Election,” Trump tweeted early Wednesday. “I was right! Roy worked hard but the deck was stacked against him!”
“If last night’s election proved anything,” he added, “it proved that we need to put up GREAT Republican candidates to increase the razor thin margins in both the House and Senate.”
