Democrats Retake House, Creating Divided Congress

Trump Calls Out Mia Love, Other Embattled GOP Candidates For Not Supporting Him

Democrats take control of the Maine Legislature

Trump, speaking during a combative news conference in which he tangled with reporters and trumpeted his role in Republican gains in Tuesday's midterm congressional elections, warned he would adopt a "warlike posture" if Democrats investigated him.

But the Democrats were successful in attracting an army of young voters, compared to the last midterms four years ago.

Adding to the good vibes was Republican Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell, who painted the upper house as "a pretty collegial place". Democrats will now head House committees that can probe the president's tax returns, which he has refused to turn over, possible business conflicts of interest and any links between his 2016 election campaign and Russian Federation, a matter being investigated by U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

"Too bad, Mike", Trump said of Coffman, before turning on Utah's Mia Love, whose race remained too close to call.

This means that the conservative legislative agenda is dead in the water.

An upbeat President Donald Trump on Wednesday promised a post-elections era of "love" in Washington, saying he can work with opposition Democrats in a newly divided Congress, yet warning the gloves could come back off at any time.

In all fairness, Nancy Pelosi deserves to be chosen Speaker of the House by the Democrats.

Though Democrats will have a majority in the House, Neal said he was mindful of the reality that Republicans still control the Senate and Trump has a presidential veto. "She has earned this great honour!" "Yesterday was such a very Big Win, and all under the pressure of a Nasty and Hostile Media!" the president also tweeted. "I think their opinions should matter". "It's not about what you have done, its what you can do".

United States President Donald Trump characterised this week's midterm elections as a referendum on himself.

Democrats also captured governorships in Michigan, Illinois and Kansas.

The U.S. president pointed out that certain policies could not get passed in the Senate if they can't get 10 votes from Democrats, as the Republicans now hold 55 seats out of the 100, and two-thirds of votes are needed for the Senate to decide on certain issues. Their first order of business as the House majority will be to decide whether to put the speaker's gavel back in Pelosi's hands.

"We will have responsibility to find our common ground where we can, stand our ground where we can't, but we must try", Pelosi said, adding that "we have all had enough of division".

Plus, he said, Democrats have "nothing, zero", on him.

Asked if she's concerned about facing headwinds in her speaker bid, Pelosi told CNN's Chris Cuomo on Thursday that it's part of the job.

First, she must capture a majority of Democrats in a behind-closed-doors November 28 party leadership election.

In extending the Republican majority in the senate to a likely 54 senate seats, Trump is no longer as dependent on the moderate faction of the Republican Party for passing key legislation and confirming appointees.

"While the GOP attempts to divide and distract the public from their tax scam for the rich and their assault on Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and people with pre-existing conditions, Democrats across the country are focused on bringing people together", Nancy said in a letter to her colleagues, per NBC News. "They have to decide they want to run".
