White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders claimed the midterm election was a “huge victory” for President Donald Trump after the Republicans lost the U.S. House of Representatives.
Sanders shared her deluded claim on NBC News:
I think [it is] a huge victory for the president tonight with the announcement of the Senate looking like it’s going to stay with Republicans and pick up a couple seats.
The president spent the last week campaigning heavily for Senate candidates and we’re seeing that pay off…
We had a great night particularly when it comes to the Senate, and still some solid wins in the House.
