Two Economic Policies Likely to Change With Democrats in Control of House

U.S. President Donald Trump arrives for a

Blackburn, a Republican member of Congress who aligned herself closely with Trump and his policies during this race, defeated popular former Democratic governor Phil Bredesen in a tight race by 10 points. Numerous winning candidates made history, marking firsts for their race and gender. That doesn't mean I think race and immigration weren't a major part of Trump's election pitch.

"Too bad", he continued. The latter emphasise Trump's surprisingly protectionist economic rhetoric - once unthinkable from a Republican - that railed against a system controlled by global elites to the detriment of the working Americans who've watched their jobs disappear. The GOP did add to its majority in the Senate. Republicans have picked up at least one seat in the Senate, with races in Arizona and MS remaining undecided.

Trump said he wasn't sure whether he should be happy or sad about their defeats. And it seems highly unlikely that any Republican will vote for the woman their party has demonized in thousands of campaign ads. He predicted an "invasion" from the migrant caravan making its way toward the USA and decried the "radical" agenda of speaker-in-waiting Pelosi. Both are deal-makers. In 2007, Trump praised her as "the best", when she was first sworn in as speaker. Like other Democrats across the country, Spanberger emphasized protecting people with pre-existing conditions from being denied coverage or charged more by insurers. "It's about restoring the Constitution's checks and balances to the Trump administration".

Following the press conference, he announced in a tweet he had fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

More broadly, Democrats want to scrutinize the multiple ethics scandals involving administration officials, including most recently Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, who is under investigation for his travel and business ties.

For Moscow, the Democratic victory means a probable reopening of the House investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election.

Democrats say that when it comes to the administration's response, for example, to the "caravan" of Central American immigrants, they want answers about the rationale behind the troop deployments and details on the force's rules of engagement. "They ignored the consultants who said they should cover up their tattoos and smile more, and they ignored the powerful men of the Republican Party who never took them seriously anyway". At the same time, there could be regular reports about what the committee staff has found in subpoenaed records - perhaps Trump's tax returns, his company's internal financial documents, the records of his various oligarch partners in the former Soviet Union, and e-mails and other digital messages between Trump's team and people in Russian Federation. He said he would "certainly have an open mind" about releasing them when the IRS audit ends.

During the news conference, Trump sparred with White House correspondents when they posed questions he did not like. He called CNN's Jim Acosta, with whom he has frequently spared, "a rude, awful person".

White House adviser Jared Kushner waves, as he arrives at the Office of the United States Trade Representative for talks on trade with Canada, in Washington, DC, on August 29, 2018.

Those backgrounds created a sense of authenticity voters responded to, said Maeve Coyle, a spokeswoman for EMILY's List in Washington, D.C., a group that works to elect Democratic women to office. Democrats have flipped 28 House seats and lead in several more uncalled races. He added, "Two can play that game!"

Democrats held on to vulnerable seats in Montana, New Jersey and West Virginia and ousted a Republican incumbent in Nevada, but it was cold comfort.

He took credit for Republicans having "defied history" by consolidating their grip on the Senate. Trump would merely need to defend them, fold them into the White House's message, and convince voters they were an administration priority.

While US governors do not oversee presidents in the way members of congress do, those candidates in many ways represented the public face of the Democratic challenge to Mr Trump this year.

President Donald Trump, emboldened by Republican election wins in the Senate and scornful of GOP candidates he felt didn't sufficiently embrace his support, delivered a stark warning to the new Democratic House majority on Wednesday: Investigate me, and I'll investigate you - and the government will grind to a halt.
