Former President Trump slammed leftwing media outlets over their coverage of Tuesday’s midterm elections.
In a post on his social media outlet Truth Social, Trump blasted the New York Times, accusing them of “making up a story” and “refusing to write the facts” about the former president’s influence on the GOP’s lackluster performance in the election.
“Incredible how dishonest the Fake News Media is. The Failing New York Times has gone crazy,” Trump wrote. “So many of the people I Endorsed went on to victory on Tuesday Night, nobody was even close, and they literally make up a story refusing to write the facts, and only quoting enemies and losers. Almost all of the people I endorsed WON, yet if you read the story from two Trump hating writers (who only do as they are told!), you would not even recognize the truth.”
“They truly are, THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!!!” he added.
This comes after the widely anticipated “red wave” of Republican wins turned out to look more like a ripple.
It is projected Republicans will take control of the U.S. House of Representatives, but the Senate is still up for grabs.
Trump is expected to announce his 2024 presidential candidacy on Nov. 15. But some fear the midterm results were a referendum on Trump and wonder if he can defeat a Democrat in 2024.
