Trump Declares Victory In Kentucky After His Candidate For Gov. Loses, Says ‘Fake News Media’ Will Blame Him

After Democratic Attorney General Andy Beshear claimed victory in the highly contested Kentucky gubernatorial race, President Donald Trump jumped on Twitter to celebrate other Republican wins in smaller races in the state. He also whined that the “fake news media would blame him for Matt Bevin’s defeat.”

“#ElectionNight Won 5 out of 6 elections in Kentucky, including 5 great candidates that I spoke for and introduced last night. @MattBevin picked up at least 15 points in last days, but perhaps not enough (Fake News will blame Trump!),” Trump tweeted.

He also celebrated Republican Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves’s win in the Mississippi by adding, “Winning in Mississippi Governor race!”

In a second tweet after midnight, the president said that he will be at a “Big Rally!” in Louisiana to promote Republican businessman Eddie Rispone for his Nov. 16 runoff against Gov. John Bel Edwards (D).
