Trump says 'too bad' to Republican losers who refused to embace him

The president returned to one of his favourite themes in an attack on the media reporting of the midterms.

Views on sexual harassment diverged similarly: About 8 in 10 said they see it as a "serious problem", and almost two-thirds of them voted Democratic. When they asked how the Trump Organisation arrived at the US$151,470 in profits it paid back to the Treasury for foreign stays at his hotels, they got silence.

He named checked several GOP candidates who lost Tuesday. But in Kentucky, one of the top Democratic recruits, retired Marine fighter pilot Amy McGrath, lost her bid to oust to three-term Rep Andy Barr.

It could have been a much bigger night for Democrats, who suffered stinging losses in OH and in Florida, where Trump-backed Republican Ron DeSantis ended Democrat Andrew Gillum's bid to become the state's first African-American governor.

Republicans lost control of the House of Representatives to Democrats, but Trump shrugged that off, casting Tuesday's congressional election results as "very close to complete victory" for Republicans and saying he could negotiate easier on some issues with Democrats, anyway.

"I think she could have won that race, but she didn't want to have any embrace", Mr. Trump said.

Some Democrats said during their campaigns they would not back Pelosi, but it's not clear yet if there are any Democrats willing to challenge her for the post. And it seems highly unlikely that any Republican will vote for the woman their party has demonized in thousands of campaign ads.

Almost 40 per cent of voters cast their ballots to express opposition to the president, according to AP VoteCast, the national survey of the electorate, while one-in-four said they voted to express support for Trump. Both are deal makers.

Following the press conference, he announced in a tweet he had fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions. He reiterated that he was reviewing Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke job as well, following numerous reports of ethical violations.

He said he faced political retribution this year in the form of an anti-brothel push and regulatory problems. By the time he died, it was too late to put another Republican on the general election ballot.

He decried, as he often has for months, special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation into Trump 2016 campaign links to Russian Federation and whether Trump, as president, obstructed justice by trying to thwart the investigation.

When Trump called on NBC's Peter Alexander, who defended Acosta - "I'm not a big fan of yours, either", the president said - Acosta yelled a question about pipe bombs. "This must begin immediately, and if not, then a Democratic Congress will make this a priority in January", he said.

As Trump and Pelosi extended overtures across Pennsylvania Avenue, they also shadowboxed around the new dynamic created by the House's ability to probe the president's business dealings and his administration.

Trump has frequently been combative with reporters, and painted the news media as "enemies of the people", but Wednesdays press conference raised the level of his hostility. You are a rude, bad person, you shouldn't be working for CNN. And if there's a total impasse, Trump said, "government comes to a halt and I would blame them".

He called himself "a great moral leader", and in answer to another question said he has never used racist remarks. "I'm not sure whether I should be happy or sad", Mr. Trump said. "Two can play that game!"

For context, Trump told repoters that during President Barack Obama's first midterm election that the Democrat's party lost Senate seats, including in MA.

Libby noted that often the only way the Legislature was able to extract information from LePage's administration was to use the Government Oversight Committee's subpoena powers to compel witnesses to appear before them. Bill Nelson, D-Fla. will be the second Democrat to lose his Finance committee seat if he fails to overtake incumbent Gov. Rick Scott in a potential Florida Senate recount.

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee will begin to examine the monies that the president and his family have earned as a result of foreign diplomats staying at hotels the Trump Organization manages - it doesn't outright own them - in Washington and NY.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Nancy Pelosi is telling Democratic lawmakers and supporters that elections are about the future and "thank you all for making the future better for all of America's children".
