CBS News also spoke with Republican party officials who directly blamed the “candidate quality issue” – Trump – for their losses on Tuesday night.
Trump posted on Wednesday on his social media platform Truth Social that while the election result may be considered “somewhat disappointing” for some, “from my personal point of view it was a very big win.”
