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 GOPlost.
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.

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.

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".
