  • These Democrats are poised to take over some key House panels

He mocked Republican candidates who distanced themselves from him, chided a reporter for asking a "racist question", and walked away from the lectern at one point, as an aide tried to wrest a microphone out of a reporter's hands.

"We're on a roll in this state", said Democratic Senate Minority Leader Dick Saslaw.

The president name-checked several GOP candidates who lost Tuesday. "They have no idea what the United States stands for, what we're likely to do, what we think is important, so the work would be work that I feel very well prepared for having been at the Senate for eight years, having been a diplomat in the State department, and it's just going to be a lot of heavy lifting". If they give her a hard time, perhaps we will add some Republican votes. She also referenced Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters of California, another favorite Trump villain, who is set to lead the powerful Financial Services Committee. As of Wednesday, unofficial returns showed the GOP with a 63-35 Assembly advantage and a 19-14 Senate edge.

Earlier Wednesday, he praised House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi while warning Democrats against investigating his administration.

According to a poll of voters on election day in battleground districts, almost two-thirds of those who voted for Democratic House candidates want Congress to begin impeachment proceedings, which could lead to Mr Trump's removal from office.

"We can talk about the economy but the fact is we know how well we're doing with the economy", Trump said over the weekend at a Florida rally.

"I think everybody in America will understand the difference between Trump's first two years and this third and fourth year, and everybody will understand that he's responding to what Democrats have done", Sanders said.

North Carolina Democrats will have more influence when state government policies are hammered out compared to the past six years once more of the party's legislators take their seats in January. Trump better hope the economy stays strong.

Vanden Houten of Oxford Economics said she was not forecasting a recession by the time Trump faces reelection in 2020 but the odds were rising.

The tactic would be employed to thwart the president if he attempts to end the probe into Russian election interference and alleged collusion with the Trump campaign.

The new chip should make a major difference in battery life, which has been one of the main issues holding smartwatches back. Under the hood, the Fossil Sport comes with a built-in heart rate sensor , GPS , and NFC for payments with Google Pay.

Republicans, though, pointed to Trump's 8-point victory in OH in 2016, and the four campaign visits he made to the state, including a southwest OH jaunt three weeks before the election.

The complications would grow if Trump takes the bait and, as Sanders put it, uses a potential agreement as a pretense to "run around the country telling everybody what a great president I am". Trump called the investigation "a disgrace", saying it "should never have been started, because there is no crime".

There also could be pressure to impeach Trump, though chances of removal from office by a Republican-controlled Senate are remote.

But according to a new poll of voters who lean left, they aren't hyped on anyone likely to run against President Trump for the White House.

Pelosi also pointed to the to letters sent on Wednesday by expected new chairmen of the House Judiciary, Intelligence and Oversight committees, ordering top Trump administration officials to preserve documents connected to Mueller's investigation and the firing of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

"You are a rude, bad person", he told Acosta in front of the world's media.

"Mainers have entrusted you with the future of our state and to represent all of the people", he said. What's more, the GOP flipped a Senate seat that Democrats had won in a special election this summer.

But controlling the Senate ensures Mr Trump can still make key appointments.

Trump said last month he wanted Congress to cut taxes by about 10 percent for middle-income people after the midterm elections, though he has yet to offer specifics.

If any more High Court seats become available in 2019 or 2020, the Supreme Court could move even further to the right thanks to an expanded GOP majority in the Senate.
