Trump predicts Republicans will do well in 2018 midterms while distancing himself from Roy Moore’s Alabama defeat


Donald Trump has predicted the Republicans will “do well” in next year’s midterms as he distanced himself from recent losses in Alabama and Virginia. 

“Remember, Republicans are 5-0 in Congressional Races this year. The media refuses to mention this,” the US President tweeted. 

“I said Gillespie and Moore would lose (for very different reasons), and they did. I also predicted  ‘I’ would win. Republicans will do well in 2018, very well!”
