Donald Trump emerges from midterm elections with no regrets

Pa. House and Senate remain in Republican control despite Democratic gains

CNN reporter chose to debate President Trump about the migrant caravan at the news conference.

"Now is the time for members of both parties to join together, put partisanship aside, and keep the American economic miracle going strong", Trump said. Lindsey Graham, who led an effort to impeach President Bill Clinton, warned his Democratic colleagues of the perils of that approach. This happened in 2010 when a Democratic Congress passed the Affordable Care Act - Obamacare - with no Republican votes, and it happened again a year ago when the current Congress passed President Donald Trump's so-called tax cuts with only Republican support.

"We took a thumping in the rural areas and I understand that", Heitkamp said. 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. The president may say he wants "unity and peace and love" - but it's clear it will have to be on his terms.

Libby said Democrats already were beginning to start conversations about how they would make good on their promises.

Trump reeled off a shopping list of disadvantages he claimed that the Republicans had faced going into Tuesday's vote, including "wealthy donors and special interests" for the Democrats, and "very hostile media coverage". Now the president will have no choice but to reach across the aisle to those in the House he has branded as "evil" and work with them. He called CNN's Jim Acosta, with whom he has frequently spared, "a rude, awful person".

"Those are some of the people that, you know, have decided for their own reason not to embrace, whether it's me or what we stand for", the president said. He said he would be happy to help "supply her the necessary votes".

Democrats will hold at least 21 seats in the 35-seat Senate and appeared poised to take at least 81 seats in the 151-seat House, with some results still pending in a handful of races, and others were still too close to call. The Democratic field could include a red-state governor, a big city mayor or perhaps even a failed Senate candidate, after Beto O'Rourke's spirited challenge in Texas.

He singled out GOP Representatives Mike Coffman of Colorado, Mia Love of Utah, Barbara Comstock of Virginia, Carlos Curbelo of Florida, Peter Roskam of Illinois, Erik Paulsen of Minnesota, John Faso of NY and Bob Hugin, who challenged Senator Bob Menendez of New Jersey.

Jeff Sessions: US Attorney General SACKED by Donald Trump
Whitaker should recuse himself from its oversight for the duration of his time as acting attorney general ", Schumer said. Mr Rosenstein in turn appointed Mr Mueller, a former Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

With control of the House, the Democrats now have powers to subpoena and investigate allegations of corruption and misconduct by officials in the Trump administration, including the president himself.

The House Judiciary Committee will focus on whether Trump fired FBI Director James Comey because Comey declined to go easy on Mike Flynn - the president's friend and national security adviser - as Comey has said the president demanded.

"We'll fill in the gaps on the Russian Federation investigations", he said of the Mueller probe. Additionally, in 2014, Obama lost the Senate. Because we have a thing called the United States Senate.

Pelosi, who is likely to return as House speaker despite opposition from some centrist Democrats, promised that the party will serve as a counterweight - but also work with Trump.

But without overwhelming numbers, Democrats will not have the strength to push numerous initiatives their left flank ran on: a single-payer health care system, boldly expanded college access and an Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency that is at least reined in.

A debate about whether Trump's rhetoric encouraged extremists erupted in the campaign's final weeks after pipe bombs were mailed to his top political rivals allegedly by a Trump supporter who was arrested and charged, and 11 people were killed in a shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue.

Trump encouraged voters to view the first nationwide election of his presidency as a referendum on his leadership, pointing proudly to the surging economy at recent rallies.

Trump said he'll now have "a much easier path" than if the GOP had held the House by a couple of seats, because Democrats will come to him with plans "and we'll negotiate it".
