Donald J. Trump Verified account @realDonaldTrump Congratulations to Doug Jones on a hard fought victory. The write-in votes played a very big factor, but a win is a win. The people of Alabama are great, and the Republicans will have another shot at this seat in a very short period of time. It never ends!
Leader... straight up... contrast with Hillary who is still fighting 2016...True leader
Quite a contrast from the preceeding 8 years...
Clearly President Trump wants to wash his hands of that GOP ineptitude in Alabama ASAP.
Doug Jones should be thanking McConnell for running interference for him.
The A-hole has the gall to blame Bannon for the defeat after everything he did to stab Moore in the back! Shades of the Mississippi GOP primary. The Uni-Party wins again.
The Democrat Party will only get away with that kind of sleazy politics a few more times.
Then there will truly be hell to pay.
The Dims and Rinos blew their playbook wad on this short lived Senate term race ... I would suspect that Jones will be a very Conservative Dim ... so no worries people , we will take it back in 2 years ...
Classy post? If I have read 50 Ive read 100 comments tonight blaming Trump for Moores loss. And now this early on congratulatory tweet will not sit well with many Freepers
I like that he doesn’t gloat. Remember he said in the primary “you have to pick a winner” meaning a winner in tonight’s race. That was not Moore. Bannon et al should have listened to Trump. It’s smart to listen to winners, Trump is the winner, not Bannon. Tonight proved that yet again.
Educational election. Hope we learned the lesson.
The most important thing to do in any modern election is to locate a pack of women who will allege your opponent committed acts of sexual harassment at some point in his past.
Smart. Republicans should try to get Jones to vote with them, join their caucus and eventually switch parties. Jones will be gone in 2 years if he gets too close to Chuck Schumer.
Yeaah they cheered for Bannon and Moore and didn’t listen to Trump in the primary.
And now they want to blame Trump.
Unfortunately, you’re probably right.
“I would suspect that Jones will be a very Conservative Dim “
You haven’t paid attention to this race very much. Have you?
This seems a little cryptic to me.
[we will take it back in 2 years ...]
He’s in ‘til 2020.
The template is for Gloria Allred to call a press conference with one of her teary eyed accusers and the GOP candidates is finished. The fact that none of the allegations can every be proved is besides the point.
And congratulations to Mitch McConnell.
He won the first year of the Trump Administration.
The only Trump legislative achievement will be the tax cuts, which was the one thing on the Trump agenda the GOPe donors wanted.
