NEW Fox News articles can now be heard on audio! In a tongue-in-cheek statement on Tuesday night, the former president Trump congratulated “ALL WINS” from his preferred candidates in primary contests. This may have included his sarcastic “endorsements” of Democrats.
On his social media platform Truth Social, the former president, who supported a few politicians during the 2022 midterm election season, bragged about the victories.
“Looks like a great evening of GREAT CANDIDATES AND ALL WINS!” On Tuesday evening, Trump wrote.
Later, he added: “Tonight, 26 and 0 converted a number of close races into decisive victories. 98.4% overall for the past 4 years on endorsements!”

Democratic candidates like Dan Goldman, who won his New York primary on Tuesday night, had received Trump’s lighthearted support. In a post on Truth Social last week, Trump stated, “It is my great honor to Strongly Endorse him.”
Trump continued, “I do this because he was honorable, fair, and extremely intelligent, not because he headed up the Impeachment Committee and lost.
In other significant endorsements, Florida Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz, who is supported by Trump, defeated Mark Lombardo, a former FedEx CEO, in a primary on Tuesday night. Gaetz was under investigation for allegedly engaging in sex trafficking with a kid, but she still managed to win.
Trump on Saturday endorsed the member of the House Freedom Caucus who refutes the accusations. “A persistent Fighter for the amazing people of Florida’s 1st Congressional District,” the former president praised him.
