The results of the 2018 midterms — Republicans kept hold of the Senate and Democratstook control of the House — will usher in an era of divided government that could stifle the White House’s agenda.

But President Donald Trump doesn’t look at it that way. Instead, he claims the elections were a “Big Victory” for him and his party.

“Received so many Congratulations from so many on our Big Victory last night, including from foreign nations (friends) that were waiting me out, and hoping, on Trade Deals. Now we can all get back to work and get things done!” he tweeted on Wednesday morning, even as some races that could see Republicans lose remain too close to call.

That followed a series of late-night and early-morning tweets where Trump showered praise on himself for helping some Republicans win. “Tremendous success tonight. Thank you to all!,” he tweeted on Tuesday.

Trump certainly has some reason for optimism. The GOP won an emotional gubernatorial race in Florida with the defeat of Andrew Gillum, but more importantly, the party gained seats in the Senate — a historical rarity. Democrats had a tough set of senators to defend, but as my colleague Matthew Yglesias recently noted, “This is so rare that it didn’t happen to anyone in 2004 or 2006 or 2008 or 2010 or 2012 or 2014 or 2016. But Tuesday night, at least three incumbent Democratic senators lost.”
