Former President Donald Trump has retaken to his social media to celebrate the “ALL WINS” of his recently ‘endorsed’ Democrat candidates. This was after the results of the primary elections came in on Tuesday.
The former president, who had handed out several tongue-in-cheek endorsements on his Truth social network, went back to celebrate the flawless ‘victory.’
He wrote on his Truth Social, “Looks like a fantastic evening of ALL WINS – Great Candidates!!!” Trump later added: “26 and 0 tonight, turning numerous tight races into big and easy wins. Overall for the last 4 years, 98.4% on Endorsements!“
Starting with Democrat candidate Dan Goldman, the former president had handed a remarkable satirical endorsement. He wrote, “It is my great honor to Strongly Endorse him. 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.“
The Kingmaker celebrated all wins as even Goldman managed to narrowly win his New York primary against a bevy of more progressive rivals.
Trump’s endorsements actually make a ton of sense. Carolyn Maloney chairs the horribly ineffective House Oversight Committee that still hasn’t managed to get Trump’s tax returns; Dan Goldman was lead counsel of the wildly ineffectual and misguided first impeachment campaign.

The victory was also recorded for Florida Republican congressman Matt Gaetz who Trump backed. He had defeated former FedEx executive Mark Lombardo in a primary on Tuesday evening despite being investigated over sex trafficking allegations regarding a minor.
Gaetz denied this allegation and was backed by Trump starting Saturday as Trump declared him “a relentless Fighter for the incredible people of Florida’s 1st Congressional District!“
He is most likely to win a fourth term in November. Florida is not expected to be among the most competitive states this fall, as Floridians have recently begun to move into the conservative space. In the primary elections on Tuesday, he had won with a large margin, beating his closest rival by more than 40 percentage points.
Gaetz was also attacked with ads from Lombardo claiming he could be the ‘informant’ that led to the FBI raid of Mar-a-Lago earlier this month. Donald Trump Jr. denounced this claim during a stump speech in Florida for Gaetz on Monday evening.
The Kingmaker’s actual endorsees in Florida all emerged as victors in their primary elections on Tuesday. His Florida candidates included Kat Cammack, John Rutherford, Marco Rubio, Gus Bilirakis, Neal Dunn, and Anna Paulina Luna.
On Tuesday, Trump’s chosen candidate, Air Force veteran and conservative activist Anna Luna, won her primary in an open GOP-leaning seat on Florida’s Gulf Coast.
Victors like the incumbent Congressmen Vern Buchanan, Greg Steube, Scott Franklin, Byron Donalds, Brian Mast, Mario Diaz-Balart, and Carlos Gimenez also received Trump’s backing.
The Kingmaker’s influence was also seen in the Big Apple as his candidates recorded big wins. They included the incumbent Republican congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis, Elise Stefanik, and Representative Claudia Tenney.
So far, one of Trump’s sweetest victories was his candidate emerging victorious in Wyoming’s Republican primary, kicking Cheney off the seat. His effect on the GOP has been immeasurable this season. His approval helped set the party’s Senate field and was vital in several tight primary elections.
Trump set out to demonstrate his influence as the Kingmaker this primary season, and he has definitely succeeded.
