President Donald Trump touted the success of the three Republicans who won their state primaries Tuesday night.
Trump sent out a tweet Wednesday morning congratulating voters for selecting candidates “who have a great chance of winning in November” and praised the GOP for tremendous “voter energy and excitement.” The tweet comes after the three primary elections in West Virginia, Indiana and Ohio.
The Republican Party had a great night. Tremendous voter energy and excitement, and all candidates are those who have a great chance of winning in November. The Economy is sooo strong, and with Nancy Pelosi wanting to end the big Tax Cuts and Raise Taxes, why wouldn’t we win?

The president also took a shot at House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi after she said Tuesday she wanted to raise taxes and roll back tax cuts passed by Republicans in December 2017.
Trump only took a public position in one of the three primary elections, telling voters in West Virginia not to vote for the controversial candidate and coal baron Don Blankenship two days before the election.
