Trump urges Democrats to join hands, but remains defiant

Howard TerryNov 09, 2018

Fourteen states will be entirely under Democratic control, 21 states will be entirely under Democratic control and 13 will have a governor who represents a different party from the majority in the state legislature. Democrats have not been handed control of the House so they can fight among themselves or make excuses about what they cannot do because Trump is still the president and Republicans have strengthened their hold on the Senate. Questionable things were done, such as leaks of classified information. But in Nevada's Senate race, Democrats captured a GOP-held seat when Democrat Jacky Rosen triumphed over incumbent Republican Sen.

The Democrats also took control of the House of Representatives.

Trump, he said, is a "total opportunist" with "no political ideology" - the kind of politician whose thirst for adulation might, under certain circumstances, lead to his signing, or even championing, just about anything.

Republican incumbents Steve Knight and Dana Rohrabacher were defeated, however, and Diane Harkey lost to her Democratic challenger in California's 49th, a seat held by Darrell Issa.

"I do think it's legitimate for the CEOs to come in and testify about what's going on in their banks", she said in a phone interview. Trump took office as the 45th President, and Pence as the 48th Vice President, on January 20, 2017.

"Mike, will you be my running mate?"

The Post report didn't specify what facet of USA foreign policy toward Saudi Arabia would be investigated.

William Hill said that Trump's odds had drifted slightly, but agreed he was still the favourite.

To this, Trump responded, "You should let me run the country".

The election served as a referendum of sorts on Trump's racially charged appeals and the strength of the coalition that powered him to the White House - a group he will need again in just two years.

Attorneys general often band together in challenging presidents; Republicans sued to overturn the Affordable Care Act, and Democrats have challenged President Trump on issues such as the original travel ban and easing environmental regulations. In addition, any investigative action will also be countered with probes by the Republicans in the Senate, Trump warned. "Would I be shocked if Donald Trump says, 'You know what, that's a good idea and I'm going to run around this country telling people that I, Donald Trump, not only saved Medicare but I lowered the eligibility age?' Would I be shocked if he came out and said that?"

The article also talked of how the midterm elections "put a dent" in Trump's armour "both by exposing weaknesses in the Midwest and assuring sustained congressional investigations over the next two years".

Weinfeld said he was not surprised Democrats fell short of a majority in the House, and few experts predicted the party would take the Senate.

Republicans appeared to have won at least 56 seats in the House, while six other seats were captured by independent candidates and another eight seats were undecided because the results had either not yet been reported or were too close to call.

Dr Evan Lawrence, who is a senior lecturer at the University of Central Lancashire in United States politics, has also worked in Congress and has a background in global relations.

High voter turnout for Democrats was widely expected but less expected was that Republican enthusiasm for this midterm vote was not all that diminished.

"I suspect that if the GOP puts up a credible candidate she could easily be a one-term representative", Busch told the Washington Free Beacon.

The White House for days has been stressing the historical headwinds it faced: In the last three decades, 2002 was the only midterm election when the party holding the White House gained Senate seats.

Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib are the first Muslim women and Sharice Davids and Debra Haaland the first Native American women to be elected to Congress.

The seat, which includes parts of Charleston and the majority of South Carolina's coast, has been in Republican hands since 1981.

"We are in a battle". The easiest pathway back to the White House might be through the Midwestern states that fell when Mrs Clinton's electoral "blue wall" collapsed. "That's a firewall", GOP volunteer James Murr said.

Democrats say they want to pursue unanswered questions about Russian interference in the 2016 election and end what they call a campaign by House Republicans to undermine Special Counsel Robert Mueller's continuing investigation.

The result was broadly in line with what many analysts projected but makes for a confusing picture.

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.

"To lose bc of POTUS & have him p*** on u", he said in a tweet.
