President Donald J. Trump said his endorsement record is “doing better than ever” following a week in which all 12 of his chosen primary candidates won their respective races.

“12 WINS & ZERO LOSSES THIS WEEK,” Trump announced via Truth Social on Saturday, noting that he now has a 33-0 success record in Texas and a 132-7 record overall for this election cycle.

Adding that his pick for Illinois’ 15th District, Republican Rep. Mary Miller, won her race “against all odds,” the president also called out the “Fake News” media’s coverage of his endorsements.

“There has never been anything like ‘our’ Endorsement – and the Fake News New York Times writes that I may announce an early Presidential run because I haven’t done well with my Endorsements,” he said. “Actually, doing better than ever, breaking all records. We are dealing with very sick, bad people in the Fake News Media.”

Following the president’s statement, Arizona attorney general candidate Abe Hamadeh, another Trump endorsee, took to Twitter to share his perspective on the power that coveted endorsement holds.

“President Trump is exactly right,” Hamadeh tweeted. “His win record is unmatched! When he called me and endorsed me for Arizona Attorney General he told me it’s over for my opponents, and he’s right. They just don’t know it yet. Thank you, Mr. President!”

Per Newsmax, other victorious Trump-endorsed candidates last week include Illinois gubernatorial candidate Darren Bailey; Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert; Illinois Reps. Mike Bost and Darren LaHood; Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt; Oklahoma Reps. Kevin Hern, Frank Lucas, and Tom Cole; Utah Sen. Mike Lee; and Utah Reps. Chris Stewart and Burgess Owens.

In celebrating those victories last week, Sen. Ronny Jackson of Texas shared his three-word prediction for how future elections this year will go, tweeting, “RED WAVE INCOMING.”

The next major primary election day will take place on Aug. 2 with elections in Arizona, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, and Washington.
