The Democratic Party does not have the electoral momentum that its leaders have promised, the president said on Wednesday, declaring that “the blue wave is dead.”
In an interview with David Brody and Jenna Browder of the Christian Broadcast Network, Trump expressed his belief that Republicans would take the Senate and “perform very well in the House.” He made his remarks the day after House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) predicted that Democrats “would win” the House and do well in Senate and governorship contests around the nation.
In an interview recorded Wednesday on Air Force One, Trump told CBN, “I think the blue wave is dead, frankly.” And I believe we’re succeeding tremendously. The Senate race appears to be in our favor, which is crucial.
Trump refrained from declaring that Republicans will keep control of the House come next Tuesday, but he attacked Pelosi, the longstanding Democratic leader who has served as a target for GOP candidates around the country.
Trump stated that Pelosi “has been losing for a long time, so you know, she would want to win,” and then added, “she’s been claiming she’s going to win for a long time.” She isn’t doing all that well. We’ll wait and see. I believe we’ll succeed in the House as well.
The majority of polls predict that Democrats will gain seats in the House; this prediction is consistent with the historical pattern of the party that holds the White House performing well in midterm elections. However, with Trump and Vice President Mike Pence traveling the nation in the final days of the campaign with a pro-Gop message, the GOP also appears ready to preserve control of the Senate and possibly increase its majority there.
Trump responded to criticism that his recent escalation of anti-immigrant rhetoric amounts to a political gimmick to energize his support by insisting that Republicans must win control of Congress for him to enact his hard-line immigration policies.
Since you’ve known me, I’ve been working on this issue, so if I am, I’ve been doing it for a while, and now we have a chance to take action, he told CBN. The issue is a lack of Democratic votes. To pass legislation, we need Democratic votes. We have a very, very little majority, you know.
