President Trump reminisced on his election night victory and the subsequent meltdown of the establishment media, during his rally on behalf of Lou Barletta in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, on Thursday night.
“I remember a nice man, I actually like him, he’s very talented, with the big chart. And all that red, it started getting red, Republican, it started getting red, Republican, that chart, red, red, red, a little tiny dot of blue along the ocean, little blue over here around the Los Angeles area. That whole thing was red and he was going ‘uhhh’ his hand started shaking, ‘ahhh’. Oh, my God, another state, oh, my God. Fake news,” the president stated.
Trump continued, “They turn on the television and said, darling, he’s winning. Look, he just won Florida, just won North Carolina. He just won South Carolina. That was some night. Was that an exciting night.”
Looking forward to being in the Great State of Pennsylvania where we had a tremendous victory in the Election. Will be campaigning hard for an original supporter, Lou Barletta, to replace a weak an ineffective Senator, Bob Casey. Lou is tough and smart, loves PA and our Country!

Barletta, a current congressman, was one of the first politicians to endorse then-candidate Trump back when he announced his campaign.
President Trump was in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania campaigning on behalf of Barletta, who is running for a seat in the Senate. He will be going up against the incumbent, Bob Casey Jr., in November.
