President Donald Trump on Wednesday said outgoing Republican U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam “didn’t want the embrace” hours after the Wheaton Republican conceded defeat to Democratic challenger Sean Casten.

Trump gave a live televised speech Wednesday morning after Democrats seized control of the U.S. House in the midterm elections. Casten’s victory turned a longtime GOP stronghold into a critical national win for Democrats.

In his speech, Trump listed Republican candidates who lost Tuesday night after keeping their distance from the president during the campaign. He gave nods of approval to Downstate U.S. Reps. Mike Bost and Rodney Davis.

“Peter Roskam didn’t want the embrace,” Trump said.
