Trump Reacts to Primary Results: “So Much for the Big Blue Wave”

President Donald Trump reacted to the primary results on Tuesday, tweeting they indicate there “may be a big Red Wave” instead of a Blue Wave in November.

“Great night for Republicans! Congratulations to John Cox on a really big number in California. He can win. Even Fake News CNN said the Trump impact was really big, much bigger than they ever thought possible,” he tweeted. “So much for the big Blue Wave, it may be a big Red Wave. Working hard!”

Republican businessman John Cox ran shocking strong and Los Angeles County Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa ran shocking weak. Mr. Cox advances to face Democratic Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom in the general election for governor in November.

“Many more Republican voters showed up yesterday than the Fake News thought possible,” President Trump added. “The political pundits just don’t get what is going on out there – or they do get it but refuse to report the facts! Remember, Dems are High Tax, High Crime, easy to beat!”

The results have significant implications for the battle over the U.S. House of Representatives in November.

The Democratic Party needs to flip 23 Republican seats to retake control of the House and, out of the 53 seats in California, 14 are occupied by Republicans. Seven of those districts voted for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton over President Donald Trump in 2016.

With the exception of the Southern California seat being vacated by Republican Representative Darrell Issa in Congressional District 49, the GOP vote share was above 50% in the remaining target districts.
