Former President Donald Trump took to his social media platform Truth Social to celebrate “ALL WINS” in primary elections races on Tuesday evening, the caps being an apparent reference to his sarcastic “endorsements” of Democrats.
“Looks like a fantastic evening of ALL WINS – Great Candidates!!!” the former president posted, before offering this follow-up: “26 and 0 tonight, turning numerous tight races into big and easy wins. Overall for last 4 years, 98.4% on Endorsements.”
Trump endorsed 19 candidates in Florida alone, with U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz being at the top of the list. Gaetz, who has been “under investigation” for sex trafficking allegations for nearly 18 months without any reported progress on the charges, easily held off his Republican primary challenger. Trump said in endorsing the outspoken congressman that he has worked to “fight the never-ending witch hunts from the radical left that are destroying our country.”
Other Trump-backed Florida candidates winning Tuesday night include Sen. Marco Rubio, U.S. Reps. Kat Cammack, John Rutherford, Gus Bilirakis, Neal Dunn, Vern Buchanan and Byron Donalds, as well as candidate Anna Paulina Luna.
Politico was quick to note that Trump “backed a slew of Republicans running unopposed in their primaries Tuesday.”
As for the tongue-in-cheek endorsements of Democrats, the former president tapped Dan Goldman, the lead counsel against Trump during the first impeachment hearings, and U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.), who was chair of the House oversight committee during Trump’s presidency.
“It is my great honor to Strongly Endorse him,” Trump wrote of Goldman in a Truth Social post last week. “I do this not because of the fact that he headed up the Impeachment Committee and lost, but because he was honorable, fair, and highly intelligent.”
Goldman won his New York primary on Tuesday night, while Maloney lost to U.S. Rep. Jerry Nadler in a redistricting matchup of two DC dinosaurs. He had rejected Trump’s endorsement, with his campaign accusing the 45th president of “trying to meddle in an election.”

Trump also took swipe at U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., on Tuesday, suggesting she is having “little luck” with her Jan. 6 persecution.
“Liz Cheney is having little luck getting people to focus on the Fake Unselect Committee after losing tremendous credibility in her record setting loss in Wyoming,” he wrote on Truth Social. “She lost by almost 40 points, and now she wants to tell other politicians ‘how to do it.’ Also, people are beginning to focus on the fact that because I recommended 10,000 to 20,000 troops on January 3rd, which recommendation was turned down by Pelosi and the D.C. Mayor, I cannot be held accountable – But maybe they can!”
