QUOTE OF THE DAY: Definitely Not Trump’s Fault

“If they win, I should get all the credit. If they lose, I should not be blamed at all.”

— Former President Donald Trump on his 2022 endorsements, hours before the midterm election polls closed.

Trump sat down Tuesday with NewsNation correspondent Markie Martin, who asked him how much responsibility he would take for the outcome of the elections, in which he endorsed more than 330 candidates.

  • After some of Trump’s picks lost in key states, contributing to a disappointing performance for the GOP, the former president declared “a very big victory” and accused his critics of “doing everything possible to play it down.”
