Trump goes silent on social media for 24 hours as Dems celebrate Senate majority

Former President Donald Trump has been silent on social media for more than 24 hours as Democrats continue to score key wins in Tuesday’s midterm elections.

Trump, a fast-tweeting social media sheriff who frequently comments on important events, has been particularly absent from Truth Social, his preferred platform, since he last tweeted about his daughter’s wedding on Friday.

“My beautiful daughter Tiffany is getting married today in Mar-a-Lago,” he wrote at 11:30 p.m. Nov. 11. “You and Michael are a beautiful couple who will be very happy together. A big thank you and congratulations to Tiffany’s mother, Marla, on raising a truly amazing daughter!”

The president’s silence likely reflects his disappointment with the Republican Party after it failed to win a Senate seat in Pennsylvania, where Democratic Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman elected Trump-backed Dr. Mehmet Oz defeated; in Arizona, where Democratic Senator Mark Kelly triumphed over the Trump-backed Republican Blake Masters; or in Nevada, where Democratic Senator Catherine Cortez Masto defeated Republican Adam Laxalt, uniquely backed by Trump and Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell.

RESULTS OF THE 2022 MIDDLE ELECTIONS

Trump’s silence on social media comes after he blamed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell for Senate losses as well as alleged “election fraud” at various contests.

“Mitch McConnell, the leader of the Republican Senate, isn’t doing anything about it. He’s too busy spending huge amounts of money on bad Senator Lisa [Murkowski] from Alaska, as Kelly [Tshibaka] is MUCH better,” Trump wrote.

The Alaska Senate race has not yet been called. However, as of midnight Sunday morning, Tshibaka leads Murkowski by about 3,000 votes.

“He’s the WORST!” Trump added, referring to the Kentucky Republican leader.

Several other Republicans continued to be vocal about their party’s failures in midterm election results, particularly the underperforming “red wave” expectations that many had this election cycle.

Senator Josh Hawley, R-Missouri, expressed disappointment with Republican strategy.

“You can’t expect independent voters to vote for Republicans unless you give them an agenda they care about,” Hawley tweeted.

“If your ‘agenda’ is to concede before Big Pharma on insulin, concede before Schumer on gun control and the Green New Deal (‘infrastructure’), and tease changes on Social Security and Medicare, you lose,” he added.

After the fizzled results, a handful of Senate Republicans, including Hawley and Sens. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, Ted Cruz, R-Texas, Rick Scott, R-Florida and more, also pinned their blame on McConnell and other leaders.

Members attempted to postpone next week’s leadership election, but failed. Additional time could have resulted in members organizing efforts to depose McConnell.
