Donald Trump was jubilant last night after post-election votes to determine seats in Congress were solidly won by Republican candidates.
The seats of Georgia and South Carolina are typically seen as Republican strongholds, and they were able to hold off Democratic candidates seeking to take the spots in the House of Representatives on Tuesday.
The result was met with solid praise on Twitter from the US president.
He congratulated Georgia's candidate Karen Handel and the elected nominee for South Carolina, Ralph Norman, for retaining the seats.
There will be further mid-term elections for the House of Representatives in mid-2018, where the Democrats have expressed hope of winning seats.
