Chris Wallace: ‘Tremendous Overstatement’ to Give Trump Credit for GOP Holding Senate

While Fox News’ Chris Wallace agrees that the midterm elections are turning out well for the Republican Party, he says it would be a “tremendous overstatement” to congratulate President Donald Trump.

Speaking with Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum about the implications of the election results, Wallace cautioned that analysts should hit the brakes on giving Trump “too much credit” for the GOP’s continued hold of the Senate. The Fox News Sunday anchor insisted that he wasn’t trying to diminish the importance of the results, but noted that Democrats were facing an uphill battle tonight in terms of maintaining their Senate seats.

“It’s a victory for Donald Trump but I think it’s a tremendous overstatement to say that Donald Trump pulled a hat out of the bag, this was something he should have been expected to do, he did it, congratulations to him but let’s temper our excitement over Donald Trump’s performance tonight.”
