Donald Trump Fires Back At Jim Acosta: “It is just the opposite, the people I endorsed did very well”

Former President Donald Trump fired back at Jim Acosta after the CNN host and others in the media claimed he was “livid” and “screaming at everyone” over the midterm election results.

Acosta said: “’Trump is livid’ and ‘screaming at everyone’ after last night’s disappointing midterm results for GOP, according to a Trump adviser. The adviser went on to slam the former president’s handpicked contenders: ‘they were all bad candidates. Candidates matter,’ the adviser said.”

“This adviser said it’s unlikely Trump would delay his expected presidential announcement because ‘it’s too humiliating to delay.’ But the adviser said there are too many unknowns at this point.”

Trump addressed the story today in an interview with Fox News Digital. Trump disputed the reports claiming he was furious with the results.

It should be noted the GOP may still accomplish tgoal of taking the Senate and the House.

Trump also responded to some of his advisers who urged him to postpone his 2024 announcement until after the Georgia runoff if that race will decide the Senate.

Trump said:

“There is a fake news narrative that I was furious — it is just the opposite.

“The people I endorsed did very well. 

“I was batting 98.6% in the primaries, and 216 to 19 in the general election — that is amazing.

“All these guys that are winning are my people.

“I really think we had great candidates that performed very well,” Trump said. “Marco performed very well — I held a rally for him on Sunday.”

“JD Vance performed very well.

“Johnson won.

“Oz worked very hard, but there were forces against him.

 “Oz is a great guy. He had a lot of immovable forces against him.

“Herschel is a great guy.

 “He is in a runoff with a U.S. senator.

When asked if he would postpone his announcement he said:

“We had tremendous success. Why would anything change,” Trump said.
