Former President Donald Trump is being blamed for causing the "red wave" plan to fail.
A New York Post op-ed described Trump as "Trumpty Dumpty" and said he "couldn't build a wall."
"Don (who couldn't build a wall) had a great fall," the New York Post headline read. "Can all the GOP's men put the party back together again?"
Donald Trump responded to the harsh jab on his social media platform TRUTH Social:
"The New York Post today has a story about the Wall, but my progress on the Wall was slowed down by News Corp Board Member Paul Ryan, who together with the Broken Old Crow Mitch McConnell, weren't able to get me the funds. I ended up getting them anyway, after two-and-a-half years of lawsuits, through another source, and completed the Wall plus certain additions that were made, which could have been done in three weeks, but no, the Biden Administration stupidly wanted Open Borders," Trump said in a statement on TRUTH Social.
Trump also proceeded to take swings at Fox News and CNN.
"If CNN were smart, they'd open up a Conservative network, only have me on, and it would be the most successful network in History," another of Trump's TRUTH social posts read. "Fox only made it because of me, Twitter only made it because of me, and even Facebook is now in the tubes, having lost almost $90 billion…"
The Post calls "Trump's Biggest Losers" Herschel Walker, who is in a runoff for Senate in Georgia, and Blake Masters in Arizona, which is still considered too early to call.
