Trump declares "the blue wave is dead"

In an interview with Christian Broadcast Network’s David Brody and Jenna Browder, Trump expressed confidence that Republicans would win the Senate and “do very well in the House.” His comments came one day after House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) declared that Democrats “will win” control of the House perform well in Senate and gubernatorial races across the country.

“I think the blue wave is dead, frankly,” Trump told CBN in an interview taped Wednesday aboard Air Force One. “And I think we’re doing very well. It looks like we’re going to win the Senate which is very important.”

Trump stopped short of predicting that Republicans would maintain their majority in the House next Tuesday but slammed Pelosi, the longtime Democratic leader that GOP candidates have used as a foil in races nationwide.
