Geraldo Rivera responded Thursday as the election numbers started to look better for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, saying that President Donald Trump had run a tough campaign against all odds.

“Sad for friend @realDonaldTrump,” Rivera tweeted. “Assuming results stand, he’ll have come just short of an historic comeback. Even if defeat-he ran his heart out. Doubt many could have defied odds, pundits, pollsters & vast media army arrayed against him. This is the year big media lost its soul.” (RELATED: ‘Don’t You Dare Be A Fraud Right Now!’: Dan Bongino And Geraldo Rivera Trade Barbs Over Rayshard Brooks)

Rivera went on to praise Trump for making inroads among Hispanic voters, adding, “Coalition @realDonaldTrump put together has tremendous promise. 12% Black voters & 32% Latinos voted for him to continue a presidency reviled & attacked by mainstream media intent on portraying @POTUS as racist & reactionary. What’re Democrats going to do? Tear down Trump’s wall?”

Rivera also noted that he didn’t necessarily dislike Biden — although he said that he did not vote for him. And he had a a few kind words for Biden’s running mate, Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris, as well.

“Although I did not vote for @JoeBiden, he’s ok. On the up side-with Congress so evenly divided-Democrats can’t do too much damage. @KamalaHarris will inspire young girls. As 1st Black (& Asian) woman, she’s a big deal and Republicans should recognize the significance of history,” Rivera concluded.
