Rep. Chris Collins: Trump Election 'Oh My God Moment' for Democrats

By    |   Wednesday, 09 November 2016 01:53 PM

Donald Trump's presidential win is an "oh my God moment" for Democrats, according to New York Rep. Chris Collins.

"I know it had to be a terrible night for Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, President Obama, to basically get wiped out. But I think it tells you the mood of the country," Collins told CNN, according to The Washington Examiner.

The Republican representative was the first sitting member of Congress to support Trump's candidacy for president. He blamed Democrats for the loss.

"I'll say the Democrats have no one to blame but themselves. On the congressional floor, I called it the arrogance and smugness. They just knew that Donald Trump couldn't win, or so they thought," Collins said.

When minority groups and college-education women get to know the real Trump as well as Collins does, they would be "proud" to call him president, Collins said.

He added that he believes that among Trump's stated plans, "the wall will be coming."

Collins has been critical of his opposition party before, saying that Democrats are "living in a cesspool."
