Trump reportedly regrets backing Dr. Oz

Republican Pennsylvania Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz lost on Tuesday night to his Democratic challenger, Lt. Gov. John Fetterman.

Oz won the GOP nomination after being endorsed by former President Donald Trump, and the former president is reportedly angry at those who convinced him to lend his support. 

New York Times columnist says Trump blames wife

Fox News cited a series of tweets put out on Wednesday by New York Times columnist Maggie Haberman, someone the network describes as being “known for her access to Trump and his orbit.”

In one of them she declared, “Trump is indeed furious this morning, particularly about Mehmet Oz, and is blaming everyone who advised him to back Oz — including his wife, describing it as not her best decision, according to people close to him.”

Haberman went on to add in another tweet that some within the GOP have been asking Trump to reschedule his planned 2024 campaign announcement. However, she said others contend that doing so would be regarded as an admission of failure.

Oz congratulates Fetterman

Meanwhile, Fox News noted that for his part, Oz conceded the race on Wednesday and called Fetterman to offer congratulations.

“This morning I called John Fetterman and congratulated him. I wish him and his family all the best, both personally and as our next United States Senator,” Oz was quoted as saying in a statement.

“Campaigning throughout our great Commonwealth was the honor of a lifetime, and I will cherish the memories and the people I met,” he continued.

“Pennsylvanians showed up with passion and a vision for a bright future that I found inspiring every day,” Oz stressed. “I want to thank my supporters, so many of whom worked tirelessly to spread our message and support me and my family.”

“We are facing big problems as a country and we need everyone to put down their partisan swords and focus on getting the job done,” he insisted.

The celebrity physician concluded by saying, “With bold leadership that brings people together, we can create real change.

“As a Doctor, I always do my best to help others heal. That’s why I ran for Senate. I hope we begin the healing process as a nation soon.”
