Trump economic agenda likely checked by Democratic election gains

  • These Democrats are poised to take over some key House panels

The elections further reflect on the reaction of the USA citizens who have not agreed with Trump's policies and agendas, especially the racial and cultural divides and the recently adopted anti-immigrant laws, undertaken during his two years in power.

Plus, he said, Democrats have "nothing, zero", on him.

Democrats are also interested in Mr Trump's tax returns, which he has declined to make public.

In another Tweet Wednesday morning, Trump issued a threat to Democrats, saying if they "think they are going to waste Taxpayer Money investigating us at the House level, then we likewise will be forced to consider investigating them for all the leaks of Classified Information, and much else, at the Senate level".

"We're going to have to do some soul searching", he added.

Brock recalled how the GOP fell out of favor a quarter century ago in the aftermath of the "Republican Revolution" when it launched an all-out war against former president Bill Clinton.

The Democratic leader is positioned to return to the speaker's office after Democrats took back the House in Tuesday's midterm elections.

Arizona's race remains tight, with Republican Martha McSally holding 49.3 percent to Democrat Kyrsten Sinema's 48.4 percent and 99 percent of precincts reporting.

"Those that worked with me in this incredible Midterm Election, embracing certain policies and principles, did very well". "Those that did not, say goodbye!" But the Republican-controlled House and Senate, with Trump's backing, chose to plow forward with long-promised plans to repeal Obamacare.

"Yesterday was such a very Big Win, and all under the pressure of a Nasty and Hostile Media!" he added.

Nineteen of the incoming House Democratic freshmen were endorsed by the outspoken Pelosi critic through his Serve America PAC - and Moulton says many of these congressional newbies are committed to voting for new leaders in the House.

SIPA/NewscomRegardless of affiliation or ideology, the aftermath of Tuesday's elections presents us all with a stark choice: We can either be serious about politics and policy, or we can be frivolous. "She has earned this great honor!"

If you thought Washington, D.C. was dysfunctional with Republicans controlling both chambers of congress and the White House ...

Having seized control of the House of Representatives, Democrats will get the chance to convert their rhetoric into action.

"We did this in spite of a very dramatic fundraising disadvantage driven by Democrats' wealthy donors and special interests and very hostile media coverage, to put it mildly", Trump said at the White House on November 7.

With some races still undecided, Democrats were headed for a gain of about 30 seats, beyond the 23 they needed to claim their first majority in the 435-member House in eight years.

Even Trump focused on other issues, including stoking immigration fears to motivate his base in the campaign's dying days. But in Kentucky, one of the top Democratic recruits, retired Marine fighter pilot Amy McGrath, lost her bid to oust to three-term Rep Andy Barr. Joe Donnelly in Indiana, Republican Josh Hawley defeating Democratic Sen. Additionally, the majority of state attorneys general will be Democrats come January. Republicans turned the tables in 2010, only to lose their majorities in the House and Senate in 2012. However fanciful it all might seem in the moment, Trump wouldn't be the first president to cut across party lines in pursuit of a political boost following a midterm setback. He also would have a more prominent platform from which to critique the White House.

Unlike Richard Nixon or Ronald Reagan, Mr. Trump has made no effort to build a larger coalition than the minority who helped win the Presidency narrowly over Hillary Clinton. Young people (who typically vote Democrat) turned up in record numbers this year, but so too did rural white Americans, who may not have voted prior to supporting Trump in 2016. Before the midterm elections, only 19 percent of the House and around 20 percent of the Senate comprised women.

The election was historic for different reasons.

"If the Republicans swept today, you would get more fiscal stimulus but that also would likely result in higher interest rates and the Fed moving potentially faster", said Keith Lerner, chief market strategist at SunTrust Advisory Services in Atlanta.

Overall, more voters disapproved of Trump's job performance than approved - a finding that is largely consistent with recent polling. Voters scored Trump positively on the economy and for standing up "for what he believes in". But the president received negative marks from voters on temperament and trustworthiness. Almost 40 percent of voters cast their ballots to express opposition to the president, according to AP VoteCast, a national survey of the electorate, while about 25 percent said they voted to express support for Trump.
