Nancy Pelosi's quest for House speaker may be derailed by fellow Democrats

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

He cited "questionable things" done by Democrats, including "leaks of classified information".

The Global Times, a nationalist Chinese tabloid, said in an editorial late on Wednesday that the Republicans' loss of the House "will hardly have any direct bearing on Trump's China policy".

Also among them are the first two Native American women elected to the House - Democrats Sharice Davids of Kansas and Deb Haaland of New Mexico - and the first two Muslim-American women, Rhasida Tlaib of MI and Minnesota's Ilhan Oman.

Democrats appear to have won a Republican Senate seat in Nevada.

A bad midterm does not correlate to a bad chance at re-electing the president. "I don't think anyone wants it to linger in the coming year". 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".

"Mike, will you be my running mate?" Republicans said Thursday that Trump is motivating their voters, as well as Democrats. "The answer is yes", Mr Trump said after hearing the response. "So, this is something that I feel all of my experience is geared to". Since the election, all three key players - President Trump, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, and Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell - have mentioned the "B" word, bipartisanship.

The president also warned of a "warlike posture" in Washington if Democrats investigated him.

This year, women not only increased their numbers, but the new class of lawmakers also includes women from a wide patchwork of backgrounds, adding to a Congress that is expected to be more diverse.

But it became clear early on Tuesday night that Republicans were going to have a better night than they feared, and Democrats would accomplish much less than they hoped.

"They can play that game", he said.

"When you look at the races that we won in Florida, which we weren't expected to win, and Georgia, which we weren't expected to win, and OH, which we weren't expected to win, and won - I mean, you look at some of them, the number of votes that we got is incredible", Trump said.

Republicans defeated Democratic senators in several states won by Trump in 2016 - Florida, Indiana, Missouri and North Dakota.

Democrats have a majority of 225 Democratic-held seats to 200 Republican seats with 10 races yet to be called.

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.

"The answers we got (which, interestingly, included more people who voted for Democrats on Tuesday than Republicans) might surprise you", the report said.

The vote was seen as a referendum on the president, even though he is not up for re-election till 2020.

On a national scale, this was a historic election, as more women than ever before were elected into office.

The press conference became even more unpleasant after a woman, identified as a White House intern, walked up to CNN's Jim Acosta and attempted to take away his microphone.

Kathy Cramer, a professor of political science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, said she has been observing the suburban-rural split for a decade in her home state of Wisconsin. "The main thing that Democrats can do, and they can do it without Republican votes, is investigate". At the Hilton DoubleTree Resort, music blared from the hall and smiles were etched on faces. A party that has ripped children from their parents at the border and put them in cages, has stolen a majority on the supreme court, and has looked the other way as nepotism, authoritarianism and chaos have taken up residence in the White House hardly suffered a catastrophic night.

Todd, the GOP strategist who co-wrote The Great Revolt: Inside the Populist Coalition Reshaping American Politics, said he is concerned about Pennsylvania's prospects in 2020. "The electoral setup strongly favoured the Republicans in the Senate, where they were defending only 9 seats vs 25 for the Democrats (counting the two independents with the Democrats)".

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

Trump's personal income taxes, which he withheld during the 2016 campaign and in his two years in office, are expected to be the purview of the House Ways and Means Committee. And a lot of them worked very hard. Meanwhile, turnout broke 55 percent in the four counties won by Kelly, helping him to a 4 percentage point win over Democrat Ron DiNicola.
