President Trump Reacts to Doug Jones' Win in Alabama

President Donald Trump is speaking out to react to the Alabama Senate election, in which Democrat Doug Jones was elected over Republican candidate Roy Moore.

Trump was a strong supporter of Moore and even tweeted earlier today urging the people of Alabama to vote for Moore.

“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 tweeted on Tuesday night shortly after the race was called.

Make sure to read how celebs, including Hillary Clinton, are reacting to the news.

    Donald Trump should be told how long a Senator is allowed to keep a seat once elected. Doug Jones will still be in his seat to impeach Donald Trump with the Democrat majority next year.

    Jones gets to the 2020 elections since he’s filling a remaining 6 year term vacated by Sessions. So it is shortened. He doesn’t get a 6 year standard term.

    Trump didn’t write that. One of his minders did.

    A man who lost the popular vote trying to insinuate other person only won because of right in votes… that irony is not lost on me.

    The fact that it was black women who won this for Jones must really be pissing Trump off. Hahaha.

    Yes but Doug Jones will be in his seat in 2019 to convict Donald Trump in the Senate after the Democrat Congress impeaches him. So Trump wasn’t expecting not to be around to see Jones loss in 2020.

    Donald Trump was definitely angry that black women won Jones the seat in the Senate. As retaliation he fired the only black woman Omarosa in the Trump Administration.

    It was interesting watching the media trying to normalizing Trump’s tweet. They were saying that it was tame and kept saying that he couldn’t have possibly written that tweet because it was too nice. Nothing about that tweet was tame. Trump told Jones that he only won because of write-ins, which wasn’t true. Trump also threatened to take the seat away from Jones, of course the media thought that Trump was not familiar with the duration of the term, but Trump wasn’t talking about the duration of the term, he was really saying that they were going to win the seat back from Jones by demanding a recount. I also heard talk about how McConnell was going to try to delay Jones’ confirmation.

    The GOP are on the wrong side of history. After seeing what happened in Alabama, they start their day by defaming Mueller and his investigation into Trump and Russia and rushing to pass a harmful tax bill that only benefits them and their donors. The GOP blamed Bannon for the loss in Alabama, but they lost Alabama because people are tried of the GOP putting the party before the people. If the people of Alabama can do the right thing, then why won’t Lindsay G, Paul Ryan, Mitch, Cornyn, and the GOP who went after Muller during Rosenstein’s hearing?
