Former President Donald Trump has been silent on social media for more than 24 hours as Democrats continue to score key victories in Tuesday’s midterm elections.
Trump, a social media sheriff who tweets quickly and often comments on major events, has been notably absent from Truth Social, his favorite platform, since he last tweeted about his daughter’s wedding on Friday.
“My wonderful daughter Tiffany is getting married today at Mar-a-Lago,” he wrote at 11:30 p.m. Nov. 11. “She and Michael are a beautiful couple who will be very happy together. A big thank you and congratulations to Tiffany’s mother, Marla, for raising a truly awesome daughter!”
The president’s silence likely shows his disappointment with the Republican Party after he failed to land a Senate seat in Pennsylvania, where Democratic Lt. Governor John Fetterman beat Dr. Mehmet Oz, backed by Trump; in Arizona, where Democratic Senator Mark Kelly defeated Trump-backed Republican Blake Masters; or, in Nevada, where Democratic Senator Catherine Cortez Masto defeated Republican Adam Laxalt, who was solely supported by Trump and Republican Senate Leader Mitch McConnell.
2022 MID-TERM ELECTION RESULTS
Trump’s social media silence comes after he blamed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell for the Senate losses, as well as alleged “voter fraud” in various contests.
“Mitch McConnell, the broken Republican Senate leader, isn’t doing anything about it. He’s too busy spending big bucks on bad Senator Lisa. [Murkowski] of Alaska, when Kelly [Tshibaka] is MUCH better,” Trump wrote.
The Alaska Senate race has yet to be called. However, at midnight Sunday morning, Tshibaka is ahead of Murkowski by around 3,000 votes.
“He’s the WORST!” Trump added, referring to the Kentucky Republican leader.

Several other Republicans remained vocal about their party’s failures in the midterm election results, particularly the underperforming “red wave” expectations many had in this election cycle.
Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Missouri, expressed disappointment with the Republican strategy.
“You can’t expect Independent voters to vote Republican unless you give them an agenda they care about,” Hawley tweeted.

“When your ‘agenda’ is giving in to Big Pharma on insulin, giving in to Schumer on gun control and the Green New Deal (“infrastructure”), and teasing changes to Social Security and health insurance, you lose,” he added.
In the aftermath of the failed results, a handful of Senate Republicans, including Hawley and Sens. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, Ted Cruz, R-Texas, Rick Scott, R-Florida and more also directed their blame at McConnell and other executives.
Members have sought to delay the leadership elections to be held next week, though that effort has failed. Further delay could have caused the members to organize an effort to overthrow McConnell.

A Senate GOP aide told Fox News Digital that the election will go ahead as scheduled.
Trump’s silence comes days before his scheduled 2024 presidential campaign announcement on Tuesday, November 15. The event will be held at its Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida.
