President Trump expressed disappointment that two recent terror incidents — including a mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue — hurt the “GOP momentum” going into next week’s midterm elections.
Trump lamented the consequences of the pipe bombs sent to prominent Democrats and the killing of 11 people by a white supremacist during a campaign rally in Missouri on Thursday.
“We did have two maniacs stop a momentum that was incredible, because for seven days nobody talked about the elections,” he said. “It stopped a tremendous momentum.”
Trump then emphasized that “we have to take care of our people, and we don’t care about momentum” before again mentioning the alleged recent gains by the GOP.
