Donald Trump responded to Tuesday’s defeat of GOP candidate Roy Moore in the Alabama Senate election by doing a little chest thumping in a tweet this morning even though he had backed Moore.
Trump said he predicted Moore’s defeat, declaring: “I was right! Roy worked hard but the deck was stacked against him!”

An earlier tweet released by Trump’s account struck a more conciliatory tone. In it Trump wrote: “Congratulations to Doug Jones on a hard fought victory. The write-in votes played a very big factor, but a win is a win. The people of Alabama are great, and the Republicans will have another shot at this seat in a very short period of time. It never ends!”
Trump later sent out still another tweet about the election, writing: “If last night’s election proved anything, it proved that we need to put up GREAT Republican candidates to increase the razor thin margins in both the House and Senate.”
