Former President Donald Trump on Wednesday conceded that the GOP’s midterm performance was “somewhat disappointing,” but said he shares none of the blame.
In a statement on his social media platform Truth Social, Mr. Trump lauded 219 wins by his endorsed candidates, calling it a “very big” personal victory.
“While in certain ways, yesterday’s election was somewhat disappointing, from my personal standpoint it was a very big victory - 219 WINS and 16 Losses in the General,” he wrote. “Who has ever done better than that?”
Mr. Trump, who is expected to announce a 2024 White House bid next week, has backed more than 300 Republicans in local and national races.
