The Republican National Committee (RNC) held a press conference Wednesday after Republican nominee Donald Trump became the next president-elect that featured leadership of the various Republican election committees.

Towards the end of the press conference, as Washington, D.C., reporters asked questions that appeared to disregard the sweeping win Republicans experienced nationwide, Republican State Leadership Chairman Matt Walter responded with a stern reprimand.

“Constitutionally, don’t you see that it’s your role to check Trump’s power as President?,” one reporter asked. “Trump’s never been in Government, what sort of learning curve do you expect when it comes to congressional elections?,” another asked.

Eventually, Walter shot back, saying,”I think we will be just fine.”

“There are way too many inside the beltway conversations, you are missing what is happening out there, this revolution has been building for a very long time,” Walter lectured.

“We went into this election as a counterbalance to Obama’s failed policies. We won huge gains nationwide. We defeated the Speaker of the House in Kentucky, We defeated the Senate President in Iowa.”

“It is critically important that we listen to what the voters said last night. We did great work, and the American people made their voice heard. We need to listen.” 

Trump shattered campaign projections by the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics, as well as political statistician Nate Silver. Stunned Democrats staged demonstrations in nearly every political venue, from Times Square to the gates of the White House.
