President Donald Trump Wednesday declared that Democratic Party’s midterm election “blue wave is dead,” saying he is confident Republicans will keep the Senate while doing “very well in the House.”
“I think the blue wave is dead, frankly,” Trump told Christian Broadcast Network’s David Brody and Jenna Browder during an interview taped Wednesday aboard Air Force One. “And I think we’re doing very well. It looks like we’re going to win the Senate which is very important.”
Trump also slammed House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who had said earlier this week that Democrats will win in next week’s midterms, saying that she has “been losing for a long time, so you know, she would like to win.”
He added later that Pelosi has been “saying she’s going to win for a long time. She hasn’t been doing too well. We’ll see what happens. I think we’re going to do very well in the House also.”
Trump’s full interview with CBN is to run on Thursday on “The 700 Club.”
Meanwhile, most national polls show Democrats will likely make gains in the House, following the historical trend of the party not controlling the White House doing well in midterm elections, notes Politico.
Republicans, though, appear to be ready to keep control over the Senate and possibly grow its majority, with votes expected to be boosted through a series of rallies planned by Trump and Vice President Mike Pence before next Tuesday.
