Democrats disagree on just how aggressively to go after president

  • Pelosi unveils plans to establish new House diversity office

He tweeted the midterm elections - in which Democrats defeated his Republicans to control the lower House of Congress for the first time in eight years - were "a tremendous success". As such, there were a lot of mixed reactions to Trump's tweet. Democrats say questions remain about Russian money laundering and Trump's businesses.

US President Trump said in a statement on Wednesday that if Democrats in the US House of Representatives start to investigate him and his administration, he will make sure Republicans in the Senate investigate the Democratic Party. But the Republican-controlled House and Senate, with Trump's backing, made a decision to plow forward with long-promised plans to repeal Obamacare.

The president crowed that Republicans held control of the Senate and then took aim at members of the House, where the GOP lost.

Previous presidents who have suffered mid-term setbacks have professed humility and said they learned valuable lessons.

Democrats won seats in places like Oklahoma and SC on Tuesday night in addition to their expected victories in suburban districts around urban centers. "I give her a great deal of credit for what she's done and what she's accomplished", Trump said. "Two can play that game!" the president Donald Trump said via Twitter. He has professed that he has no burning desire to run for president, but Clinton vetted him as a running mate and he could fit well with potential 2020 candidates such as California Sen. Mr Trump asked Mr Pence in front of reporters.

Polling experts have since worked to improve their methods and how they collect responses from voters for exit polls, Kennedy said. "That was unexpected but I feel very fine".

Democrats have to keep reminding themselves, and America, that they beat Trump and the Republicans in the competition that mattered most.

Among the subpoenas could be a demand to force Trump to provide copies of his tax returns, which the president has so far refused to disclose.

"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.

Here's a look at how exit polls work, the issues that appeared to matter most to voters in 2018, and how to interpret these findings. Their sense of urgency helped Pressley displace an able but older Democratic incumbent in her September primary, and it has ushered into Congress a new generation of intersectional activists-among them Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from New York, Rashida Tlaib from MI, and Ilhan Omar from Minnesota-who have been given a charge not merely to dissent against Trump but to present a governing alternative.

At the least, the Democratic victories provided a morale boost, and in demonstrating the coalition needed to win, may represent at least a symbolic roadblock to the President as he maps his 2020 strategy.

According to the office of Mrs Nancy Pelosi, the Democrat in line to become the new Speaker of the House, Mr Trump called her after the results came in "to extend his congratulations". Beijing has traditionally preferred Republicans to Democrats, due to Democrats' emphasis on human rights and lesser enthusiasm for free trade. "It's about restoring the constitution's checks and balances to the Trump administration", she told a news conference. Legislative elections are not presidential elections.

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.

He said: "I'm proud of what happened". In George W. Bush's first midterm, which took place a year after 9/11, the Republicans gained one Senate seat. At the Hilton DoubleTree Resort, music blared from the hall and smiles were etched on faces.

Widely viewed as a referendum on Trump's presidency, Tuesday's results offered a split decision that revealed deep tensions in the American electorate - a rift that could easily widen during two years of divided control of Congress. Trump's aggressive campaign blitz, which paid off in some key victories, suggests he is likely to continue leaning into the fray. "That's a firewall", GOP volunteer James Murr said.

For instance, in Democrat Elissa Slotkin's successful race to unseat U.S. Rep. Mike Bishop, R-Rochester, in Michigan's 8th Congressional District: "I'm guessing that Slotkin wins on the strength of suburban areas" in Ingham and Oakland counties, Weinfeld said.
