Donald Trump's strong showing in swing states during Tuesday's presidential election was a reflection of "real American people," Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., said.

Sessions was the first senator to endorse Trump. He spoke with The Daily Caller from Trump's election night party in New York City early Wednesday.

"You know, it's just one of the most thrilling things I've seen," Sessions said. "I thought this could happen, but the evening started off pretty negative with Florida in bad numbers. Ohio in bad numbers. You say, 'Oh no, it’s going to happen again.' But the American people moved these numbers.

"These are votes from real American people."

Trump won Florida, Ohio, and North Carolina, three states that were crucial to his chances of becoming president. At 1 a.m. Wednesday, Trump's and Democrat Hillary Clinton's camps were closely watching the results in states like Pennsylvania, Minnesota, and Michigan as Election Day entered Day 2.

Sessions said Trump's swing state victories are "a tribute to the American people. Washington has not been listening to them. They are right about that. They've asked for a lawful system of immigration that protects America's interests, they're right about that, there's nothing wrong about that. Washington wouldn't give it to them.

"They believed the trade policies weren't working for them, and Washington just slammed the door on it, wouldn't even discuss it, passed a new TPP on top of these old trade deals. They slammed the door on that."
