There are six silver linings for Trump in his midterm results

Election Results 2018: Here are the Midterm Races Still Too Close to Call for House, Senate and Governor

She said Democrats aren't itching for fights, but will use Congress's oversight powers judiciously to expose wrongdoing within the administration. But Democrats suddenly have a foothold that gives them subpoena power to probe deep into Trump's personal and professional missteps - and his long-withheld tax returns.

"If the Democrats think they are going to waste Taxpayer Money investigating us at the House level, then we will likewise be forced to consider investigating them for all of the leaks of Classified Information, and much else, at the Senate level", Trump tweeted Wednesday.

"Regardless of the result ... we believe the two governments and the two peoples all want to maintain the sound and steady development of bilateral relations because we believe it is in the best interests of the worldwide community", Hua said. "Indeed, there were reports that White House officials had told the president to brace himself for a very tough night", Mr Kurtz wrote on the Fox website.

The Democratic victory in the U.S. House of Representatives could echo from Moscow to Beijing to Riyadh, with empowered Democrats now able to launch new investigations into President Donald Trump's worldwide business empire and his political dealings with the rest of the world.

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. "That was unexpected but I feel very fine". "Those that did not, say goodbye!"

McConnell also said he would push for more women to join the Senate Judiciary Committee. "It's about restoring the constitution's checks and balances to the Trump administration", she told a news conference.

The new Democratic House majority will end Republican dominance in Washington for the final two years of Trump's first term with major questions looming about health care, immigration and government spending. That said, if Abrams wins, she will become Georgia's first Black female governor.

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 honour!" And after two years of the Republican Party's complete control over the executive and legislative branches of the government, voters in the U.S. were expected to exercise control over how things were going in the country.

The change in House control could bring other challenges for the market. Republicans will also have a majority in both houses of state legislatures in 30 states, while Democrats will have a majority in 18 states.

"I think people want us to be a centrist state where parties work together", Rep. Graig Meyer of Orange County, who helped recruit Democratic candidates, said in an interview.

The Democrats soundly routed the Republicans in the House and lost seats to them in the upper chamber because, to put it simply, different rules govern elections for the two chambers.

"To have Walker lose is a significant turning point that the right candidate in 2020 could win all of these states" across the industrial north, Democratic pollster Paul Maslin, who advised Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota, Joe Donnelly in IN and Claire McCaskill in Missouri. Claire McCaskill in Missouri and Republican Attorney General Mike DeWine defeating Democrat Richard Cordray in the race for OH governor.

He touted the successes of the candidates he stumped for, singling out Pennsylvania's newly-elected lieutenant governor, John Fetterman, Michigan Govenor-elect Gretchen Whitmer, whose primary opponent he endorsed before traveling to Ann Arbor last month in a show of support for the nominee, Wisconsin Sen.

Going back to 1970, the average midterm loss for the president's party has been 23 seats, and the median loss has been 14 seats.

History was working against the president in both the House and the Senate.

Even President Trump appears to believe Pelosi will land the job, calling her "Speaker Pelosi" in his press conference Wednesday, and praising her for her accomplishments.

"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.

Those who hope to trounce Trump in 2020 would be furious about this mischief-making. But the president received negative marks from voters on temperament and trustworthiness.

As the ranking Democrat, Engel has issued a steady stream of barbed commentary over Trump's policies - among them, withdrawing from the nuclear deal with Iran and weapons treaties with Russian Federation, threatening to withhold aid to Central America, slashing refugee admissions and support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen. An aggressive campaign to define and demonize new congressional committee leaders.
