President Trump early Wednesday offered some advice to Democrats after Republican special election congressional wins in two states.

“Democrats would do much better as a party if they got together with Republicans on Healthcare,Tax Cuts,Security,” he tweeted.

Trump late Tuesday congratulated Karen Handel for her win in a high-stakes Georgia race.

Trump also said Ralph Norman ran a “fantastic race” in South Carolina.

Trump also touted GOP wins in special elections earlier this year, saying Republicans are “5 and 0” despite all the “fake news” and “money spent” by Democrats.

{mosads}Trump’s tweets also come after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Tuesday that Republicans would see a “discussion draft” of healthcare legislation on Thursday.

McConnell said reporters will also be able to see the plan then, addressing complaints from Democrats that GOP leaders have kept the bill secret.

Trump often blasts Democrats, accusing them of obstruction and encouraging them to work with Republicans to accomplish policy goals.
