Donald Trump warns Democrats against probes and mocks Republicans who lost seats

Donald Trump warns Democrats against probes and mocks Republicans who lost seats

They won the popular vote and, for the first time since 2008, independent voters - who aren't affiliated with either party - backed the Democrats, and by a sizable margin.

But Trump gets some good news from the traditional swing states of OH and Florida, which cast more votes for Republicans in House races and would stay in his column. Questionable things were done, such as leaks of classified information.

Fox's Dana Perino asked McConnell during an interview Wednesday how the high number of Democrats with presidential aspirations might affect the Senate that McConnell has retained control of following the 2018 midterms.

Trump, he said, is a "total opportunist" with "no political ideology" - the kind of politician whose thirst for adulation might, under certain circumstances, lead to his signing, or even championing, just about anything. After all the liberal media hype, and the sheer volume of money from the green wave, O'Rourke lost.

"We have a constitutional responsibility to have oversight", Pelosi said. "The country now stands not far from where it was when Mr Trump won his shocking victory in 2016: deeply divided in its politics as well as its views of the 45th president", said the article.

The Democratic base wants the House to impeach Trump. The Democrats made only slight inroads in Trump country, where they tried to win back white working-class voters.

The press conference, which initially focused on simple political topics, quickly descended into chaos after Trump was asked about his politics and the controversial issue of Russian Federation meddling in the US's 2016 presidential election (the same election that put Trump in the White Hosue).

An article in The Washington Post presented both sides of the debate over whether the midterm elections were a victory for the Democrats or not.

Such a left-populist message just might succeed in settling the dispute over which party will come to be seen as the greater friend and ally of those Americans who spend more time worrying about making ends meet than they do about corporate tax rates.

"They can play that game", he said of possible House Democratic investigations, "but we can play it better, because we have a thing called the United States Senate". The article also said that the U.S. president "probably always planned to jettison" former USA attorney general Jeff Sessions.

The difference now, Sanders reasoned, is that Democrats will, for the first time during Trump's time in office, have the ability to set the agenda - and a real hand to play in any potential negotiations.

In fact, as I am writing this, it appears that enough Republicans will have won Senate seats that it will be far more hard for Democrats to have a shot at winning a Senate majority in 2020 than anyone might have expected. Republicans will also have a majority in both houses of state legislatures in 30 states, while Democrats will have a majority in 18 states. Among those expected: Vice-President Mike Pence and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, an informal adviser to the president.

While that's a certainty, we're more interested whether the Tarok will arrive in other markets as well. However, the production variant will rely on a 2-liter TDI diesel engine making 110 kW (150 PS).

White House aides called on Democrats to work with Republicans in the next Congress. For that, I don't blame her.

And in a rare moment of practicality, the Republican leader, who is up for re-election in 2020, conceded that one of the GOP's signature efforts - the repeal of "Obamacare" - is all but dead.

The losses in the House closely mirrored the historic average of 24 seats in midterms since World War II.

Also among them are the first two Native American women elected to the House - Democrats Sharice Davids of Kansas and Deb Haaland of New Mexico - and the first two Muslim-American women, Rhasida Tlaib of MI and Minnesota's Ilhan Oman. Their sense of urgency helped Pressley displace an able but older Democratic incumbent in her September primary, and it has ushered into Congress a new generation of intersectional activists-among them Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from New York, Rashida Tlaib from MI, and Ilhan Omar from Minnesota-who have been given a charge not merely to dissent against Trump but to present a governing alternative.

In congressional race after congressional race, Republicans suddenly found millions of dollars poured in against them on a scale that resembled Senate races in the past.

"We are in a battle".

Data gathered by AP VoteCast, a nationwide survey of more than 115,000 voters and about 22,000 nonvoters, suggests Trump's closing arguments about the courts and border security cost his party seats in the House. "That's a firewall", GOP volunteer James Murr said. For example, if Republican voters are more likely to say no than their Democrat peers to the questionnaire, AAPOR explains this could produce a "slight Democratic overstatement".

The result was broadly in line with what many analysts projected but makes for a confusing picture.

The Democrats regained control of the House of Representatives in winning more than 23 seats to win a majority in the 435 seat House.

"When you report fake news - which CNN does a lot - you are the enemy of the people", said Mr. Trump.

But, in another tweet on Wednesday, he told those candidates who avoided him to "say goodbye!"
