Pres. Trump says government will halt if Dems investigate him

The Democrats, in fact, gained 28 seats (and counting) which put them well past the 218 seats needed to control the House. In the lower chamber of Congress, Democrats so far have 219-193 seat majority. Republicans devoted their resources to close races, not to trying to prevent Democrats from running up the score in urban areas. Democrats have flipped 28 House seats and lead in several more uncalled races. It is because Americans understand that an unceasing influx of people can be complicated to absorb.

In Tuesday's elections, McConnell said, the contentious, partisan fight over Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's nomination was "very helpful" in winning Senate seats, like an "adrenaline shot" for GOP voters.

US President Donald Trump has said he is ready to work with Democrats after they won control of the House of Representatives in mid-term elections.

They can subpoena documents like President Trump's tax returns.

But he said the Senate's chief priority will be confirming Mr. Trump's nominees, including judicial picks. The basic premise is that when government is unified, members of Congress are more likely to vote with the president rather than adhere to its constitutional role of checking presidential power. The loss of 26 seats in the House, meanwhile, is dwarfed by the 63 seats lost by President Barack Obama in 2010 and the 52 seats lost by President Bill Clinton in 1994.

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

The Democrats, in turn, benefited from extraordinary voter enthusiasm, robust fundraising and unusually fresh candidates.

Varadkar spoke to British Prime Minister Theresa May on Monday, agreeing that any backstop should be temporary. Barnier said: "We are not there yet".

They argue that such favors to Trump include Chinese government trademarks for his companies, payments for hotel room stays and event-space rentals by representatives of Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, and proceeds from Chinese or Emirati-linked government purchases of office space in Trump Tower. "And politicians have learned to tap into them".

While Democrats taking over key House committees have not specifically telegraphed their targets, Cummings' committee would likely seek Trump's business tax returns and other company-related financial records, according to two Democratic congressional staffers who spoke on condition of anonymity in order to discuss post-election plans.

The Republican side of the aisle elected mostly white men.

During an appearance on CNN later in the day, Costello stood by his tweet and clarified that he believed many moderate Republicans had made the right choice to distance themselves from Trump, who is deeply unpopular in some parts of the country.

"In a stark contrast to the GOP Congress, the Democratic Congress will be led with transparency and openness so that the public can see what is happening and how it affects them", she said in a victory speech to Democrats on Tuesday night. They need to be reminded why. Here are some of the silver linings that Trump can take from Tuesday's vote.

"Areas for legislative agreement will be more limited", he said.

Democrats saw wins come in for more moderate candidates.

Well, as we now know, Prince Charles did the honours but it was actually Harry who asked his father to step in. But afterward watching it on the television, I think it was a lovely gesture".

The president also mocked Republicans who did not "embrace" him on the campaign trail, and went on to lose their election races.

Mr Trump also congratulated the new governor-elect of Florida Ron DeSantis, who fended off a challenge from the Democrats. "Too bad, sorry about that Mia". The result was a mixed and muddled message, with a plutocratic agenda (a huge corporate tax cut and an extended and failed effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act an replace it with ... nothing in particular) blended with selective nationalist gestures on policy and a barrage of racist rhetoric and demagoguery.

In the House, Democrats will hold at least 222 seats to Republicans' 196.

The GOP campaign committee distanced itself from eight-term Rep. Steve King of Iowa after he was accused of racism and anti-Semitism, but he won anyway.

Rep. Elijah Cummings, the Maryland Democrat poised to take charge of the House Oversight Committee, said in a statement to The Associated Press that he intends to use the panel as "a check on the executive branch - not merely for potential criminal violations, but for much broader concerns, such as conflicts of interest, emoluments violations and waste, fraud and abuse".

"I would hope that the president wouldn't interfere, and we could get something good done", the New York Democrat said.
