Nancy Pelosi, Donald Trump talk of bipartisan deals

Andrew Cuomo

The results of the 2018 midterm elections are a referendum against United States president Donald Trump's policies with the Democratic victory in the House of Representatives with 223 seats-results in five seats are still pending-and the Republicans narrowly expanding their majority in the Senate.

"To lose bc of POTUS & have him p*** on u", he said in a tweet.

The GOP also got major wins in toss-up governors races in states like Florida and OH, though Democrats did manage to pick up wins in a number of states like IL and MI.

As the ranking Democrat, Engel has issued a steady stream of barbed commentary over Trump's policies - among them, withdrawing from the nuclear deal with Iran and weapons treaties with Russian Federation, threatening to withhold aid to Central America, slashing refugee admissions and support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen.

"I suspect that when we look back at this period 20 or 30 years from now, that will be a trend that will emerge from the noise", Noel said, before cautioning that it was still too early to say exactly how significant the shift is or how long it will last.

He suggested they could co-operate on issues such as infrastructure, trade and health. But it wasn't clear that either party emerged with a clear mandate, save for Democrats claiming the country wants to see them conduct oversight on Mr. Trump. He said that while it's illegal for a member of Congress to exclusively to release anyone's tax returns, the Ways and Means Committee chairman under law has the ability to ask for the president's return. Elizabeth Warren, who easily defeated two opponents and is among potential Democratic challengers to President Donald Trump in 2020.

However, overall, just 24 percent of the respondents said that impeaching Trump was among their first three goals for the new Congress.

Democrats had hoped to pick up Tennessee as part of a narrow path to retaking the Senate.

A Republican governorship majority coupled with GOP victories in gubernatorial races in battleground states may also boost Trump in 2020, since governors hold veto power over redistricting measures.

"It was a tough year, a tough political environment", he told reporters following his loss Tuesday.

William Hill said that Trump's odds had drifted slightly, but agreed he was still the favourite. "When you report fake news, which CNN does a lot, you are the enemy of the people".

"I think people like the job I'm doing", Trump told a free-wheeling news conference at the White House which featured several acrimonious exchanges with reporters. Democratic Senate incumbents were up for re-election, for example, in North Dakota, Indiana, and Missouri - states Trump carried by nearly 25 percentage points on average two years ago.

Several committee members have articulated tougher positions than the White House on Russia, North Korea and Saudi Arabia and urged congressional authorisation on military engagement in hot spots like Syria. Rep. Conor Lamb, D-Pa., was re-elected to the House.

Republican supporters cheer after Incumbent Republican candidate for Iowa's Governor Kim Reynolds won re-election during Iowa's GOP Election Night.

"I think the message is, figure out what you can do together and do it", McConnell said, adding that the Affordable Care Act needs to be fixed but that any effort to fix the Obama-era law would have to be done "on a bipartisan basis".

The effect may be more pronounced in the Senate, due mostly to the simple fact that the Republicans no longer control the agenda in the House (where the GOP conference was already more pro-Trump even before the election).

That will allow Mr Trump's party greater leeway over judicial and executive appointments. The final count is likely to leave Democrats with a narrow majority that could be hard to manage and preserve.

Ending eight years of Republican control that began with the tea party revolt of 2010, Democrats picked off more than two dozen GOP-held districts in suburbs across the nation on the way to securing the 218 seats needed for a majority.

She won the general election after running unopposed.

Democrats also captured governorships in Michigan, Illinois and Kansas. That message resonated with voters, who elected 9 out of 11 candidates Trump campaigned for, according to his own tally.

Female candidates fared particularly well in an election cycle that had been billed as the Year of the Woman.

"Today is more than about Democrats and Republicans".
