Over a week after the midterm elections, President Donald Trump continues to try to sell people on the idea of it being a big win for him. On Friday, after Republicans lost another seat in the House of Representatives and are poised to lose at least two more, Trump took to Twitter.

The President claimed people in the United States did not see his big win because they were not being told about it by the “fake news.” While full election results are readily available, Trump blamed the media for the lack of accolades he received.

So he boosted his numbers slightly on Twitter when he posted:

“People are not being told that the Republican Party is on track to pick up two seats in the U.S. Senate, and epic victory: 53 to 47. The Fake News Media only wants to speak of the House, where the Midterm results were better than other sitting Presidents.”
