President Donald Trump took to Twitter early Wednesday morning to offer Democrats advice after their candidate John Ossoff lost to Republican Karen Handel in Georgia’s special congressional election on Tuesday night.

Republican Handel beat Democrat Ossoff to win a high-stakes, high-cost Georgia race that Hollywood tried passionately to sway left on Tuesday night. The race to fill Georgia’s 6th Congressional District, which Tom Price vacated to become Trump’s Health Secretary, offered an early test for Trump and the GOP’s potential prospects in the 2018 mid-term elections.

Tuesday’s highly anticipated runoff was the most expensive House campaign in history, with a price tag of more than $50 million.

The Democrats have not won a special congressional race since Trump defeated Hillary Clinton on Election Day, losing five straight races. The president is well aware of the situation.

MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough offered his own advice for Democrats on Wednesday, saying, “Marching in the streets does not win elections… if you want to change America, you wanna change the world, you’re much better off going into districts, campaigning for somebody, knocking on doors.”

Co-host Mika Brzezinski agreed with Scarborough, saying the mistake that Democrats make is presuming that just because Trump has low approval ratings, voters will shy away from Republican candidates.

“No, we’re not inevitable,” Brzezinski said. “We have to work for it.”
