WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) - President Donald Trump is predicting a GOP Senate victory in Alabama following Democrat Doug Jones’ vote to convict him. Trump in a Tweet on Sunday lashed out at Jones, calling him a lightweight and his vote partisan.
The president said it was so good to see that Republicans will be winning the Senate seat back.
Lizzie Grams, a spokeswoman for Jones’ campaign, said Jones declined to comment.
In a statement after his vote, Jones said he reluctantly concluded that the evidence was sufficient to convict Trump for both abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
