  • Jen Psaki said former President Donald Trump is a "loser" after Tuesday's disappointing GOP results.

  • Several candidates that Trump endorsed lost their races in the midterms, drawing GOP criticisms.

  • Some have suggested that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis may be the path forward for the Republican party.

Former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said former President Donald Trump is a "loser" who cost the GOP seats in the midterm elections and is losing support among Republican leaders.

During an NBC News panel on "Meet the Press NOW" Friday, Psaki, who served as press secretary in President Joe Biden's first year and a half in office, commented on the shift in tides for Trump after several of his hand-selected candidates lost their races.

"What feels a little different now - we'll see - is that he's losing. He is a loser after Tuesday. People he endorsed lost. He cost seats for the Republicans in the House and Senate," Psaki said, noting that Trump is "still winning among Republican primary voters."

Following disappointing midterm results for Republicans, the spotlight has shifted from Trump to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who easily won reelection on Tuesday with nearly 60% of the vote. DeSantis has been floated as a 2024 presidential candidate and potential "Republican Front-Runner."

"The magic of Ron DeSantis - who had a very good week, I think we can all agree - it hasn't played out yet. Maybe we'll see over the next couple of weeks," Psaki said on "Meet the Press NOW."

 

 

Trump planned to announce his bid on Monday before the midterms, but aides persuaded him to wait until after the election, The Washington Post reported. He has since said that he plans to make a "big announcement" at Mar-a-Lago on November 15, Business Insider previously reported.

On NBC, Psaki suggested that behind the scenes, every "sane Republican is trying to get him not to announce his run before the Georgia runoff because he's such a problem."

"So that does feel a little different. I am also still skeptical that he is going to no longer be the leader of the party, but there are some breaks in the system a little bit," Psaki said.
