At a Missouri rally on Thursday night, Donald Trump whined that a terrorist who killed 11 people at a Jewish synagogue, and the attempted pipe bomb assassinations of prominent Democrats halted GOP momentum in the midterms.
Said Trump: “Now, we did have two maniacs stop a momentum that was incredible, because for seven days nobody talked about the elections. It stopped a tremendous momentum…More importantly, we have to take care of our people and we don’t care about momentum when it comes to a disgrace like just happened to our country. But, it did nevertheless stop a certain momentum.”

People were murdered. This is all he cares about.
And btw, he inspired those maniacs to act. https://t.co/90oT7qDqAV
