The midterms show Trump might not get re-elected in 2020

  • US: Democrats take the House, but there was no landslide – Nordea Markets

The United States Presidential Election of 2016 was the 58th quadrennial American presidential election, held on November 8, 2016.

But the president warned he would not hesitate to retaliate if House Democrats use their committee powers in the next Congress to investigate members of his administration or his personal finances.

That means that the only obviously Trump-skeptical Republican to win a statewide race on Tuesday-the newly elected senator-to-be from Utah, Mitt Romney-may not have much leverage either.

Trump said that if Democrats try to use their majority to issue subpoenas, it would be a "war-like posture".

Of the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation that has shadowed his administration for more than 18 months, Trump said, "I could end it right now" but "I let it go on".

He suggested they could co-operate on issues such as infrastructure, trade and health.

But Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, who is set to regain the speaker's gavel come January, said her party has a duty to root out fraud and wrongdoing in government. In the lower chamber of Congress, Democrats so far have 219-193 seat majority.

"They can play that game", he said.

"Tremendous success tonight", Trump tweeted. His standing with the Democratic base - if not his supporters on the progressive left - risks damage for even entertaining the idea of engaging with Trump, whose presidency Sanders himself described as an "existential danger to everything this country stands for".

Schiff said he also he plans to reopen parts of the Intelligence panel's Russia-election interference inquiry that Democrats say was prematurely closed by Republicans.

"They did very poorly", Mr Trump told reporters.

At one point during the press conference, a visibly angry Trump branded CNN's White House correspondent Jim Acosta a "rude, bad person" and an "enemy of the people" in a testy exchange.

"Indeed it is a good morning for Senate Republicans", the Kentucky Republicans told reporters. The firing of Attorney General Sessions opens the way for the prosecution of all the Democrats who have lied under oath and committed other offenses, from Hillary Clinton, Loretta Lynch, and agency directors Clapper, Brennan, and Comey, down into the bowels of the Obama Administration and Clinton campaign.

The top Democrat on the House Intelligence panel, Adam Schiff of California, has pushed for answers on the administration's response to the killing of US -based journalist Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi operatives in Turkey.

Nearly all of the House Democratic gains came from the suburbs: They are projected to flip over two dozen seats in primarily suburban districts, sweeping out once-comfortable Republican incumbents including Reps. History shows that a president in his first term usually suffers a sizeable loss in...

All 435 seats in the U.S. House were up for re-election, although fewer than 90 were considered competitive.

While Trump retains broad power over national security and U.S. foreign policy, the midterm election result exposes him to congressional investigations that could reverberate beyond American borders. "I am extremely happy with the economy", Gerlock said as he cast his ballot in Chicago. The Senate was always an uphill battle for Democrats, who needed to defend 26 of the 35 seats in play, compared to just 9 for the Republicans.

Mr. Trump has a free hand in judicial appointments and foreign policy.

"This is the year of the woman, and the fact that women were willing to put themselves on the line is important, whether they've been Republicans or Democrats", said former Health and Human Services Secretary Donna Shalala, a first-time candidate who defeated Republican Maria Elvira Salazar in south Florida.

Trump's team immediately sought to give him credit for retaining their narrow Senate majority, even as their foothold in the more competitive House battlefield appeared to be slipping.

"I think Mainers sent a pretty clear message in that they want a change in how our state is run", Sen.

Joining Davids as one of the first Indigenous women elected to Congress was fellow Democrat Deb Haaland, a member of the Laguna Pueblo tribe who will represent New Mexico's first district. According to data compiled by The Associated Press, 237 women ran for the House as major-party candidates this year.

Two 29-year-old Democrats - Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Abby Finkenauer - are due to be the youngest women ever to win House seats.

Voters in Minnesota and MI elected the first two Muslim women to serve in the U.S. Congress: Ilhan Omar, a former refugee who fled Somalia's civil war, and Rashida Tlaib, a Detroit-born Palestinian-American.
