Rep. Ryan Costello, R-Pa., blasted President Donald Trump for criticizing Republican lawmakers who were defeated in the midterm elections.
Costello, who is retiring from Congress, accused the president of being the reason behind their defeat. His comments came in a Wednesday tweet.
He wrote: "To deal w harassment & filth spewed at GOP MOC’s in tough seats every day for 2 yrs, bc of POTUS; to bite ur lip more times you’d care to; to disagree & separate from POTUS on principle & civility in ur campaign; to lose bc of POTUS & have him piss on u, Angers me to my core."
The Hill noted that the president was critical of GOP lawmakers, including Rep. Mia Love, R-Utah on Wednesday for losing. Trump blamed Republicans’ unwillingness to accept his policy agenda.
“I saw Mia Love, she called me all the time to help her with a hostage situation, being held hostage in Venezuela,” Trump said. “But Mia Love gave me no love, and she lost.”
