Mr Trump will facing greater scrutiny as the Democrats took control of the House in the midterm elections for the first time in eight years, during yesterday's midterm elections.
But Pelosi pointedly told supporters the Democratic victory was about "restoring the Constitution and checks and balance to the Trump administration.It is about stopping the [Republicans] and Trump administration's assault" on two government-run medical insurance programs for older and impoverished Americans "and people living with pre-existing medical conditions".

As this was the region that was seen as one which gave Trump the presidency, the deep rejection of the GOP there has to be seen as a risky development for the president. President Barack Obama's Democrats lost 63 seats in 2010. They included New Jersey Sen Cory Booker, California Sen Kamala Harris, former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg and former Vice President Joe Biden. The president said he shares those goals, but will only play ball if they agree not to investigate him. Republicans lost seats in the House after focusing on impeachment in 1998.
In Virginia, political newcomer Jennifer Wexton defeated two-term GOP Rep. Barbara Comstock.
Democrats failed to defeat a vulnerable incumbent in Kentucky, where Republican Rep. Andy Barr won over former Marine fighter pilot Amy McGrath.

The midterms also featured some potentially historic candidates, including Stacey Abrams, who would be the first black woman to be governor of Georgia if she won.
