Trump on Sunday also argued that electing Democrats in the 2018 midterm elections would “kill the great wealth” he said the country has seen since his 2016 victory.

“Why would smart voters want to put Democrats in Congress in 2018 Election when their policies will totally kill the great wealth created during the months since the Election,” he said.
