President Donald Trump threw another jab at the press Friday afternoon, saying the "fake news media" is not reporting on Republicans' gains in the Senate from the recent midterm elections.

Trump had this to say on his Twitter account:

"People are not being told that the Republican Party is on track to pick up two seats in the U.S. Senate, and epic victory: 53 to 47. The Fake News Media only wants to speak of the House, where the Midterm results were better than other sitting Presidents."

Republicans lost control of the House but held onto the Senate. Two Senate races have not yet been officially called, in Florida and Mississippi. Republican Rick Scott leads the race in Florida amid a hand recount, while a special election in Mississippi is heading for a Nov. 27 runoff. Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith received the most votes in that race but did not garner the 50 percent needed to clinch victory.

If Republicans end up taking both of those seats, the GOP will have a 53-47 majority in the Senate chamber.
