"People are not being told that the Republican Party is on track to pick up two seats in the U.S. Senate, and epic victory: 53 to 47," he wrote.

"The Fake News Media only wants to speak of the House, where the Midterm results were better than other sitting Presidents."

The margin in the Senate is currently 51 to 47, with Florida and Mississippi yet to be decided.
