President Trump Speaks On Election Results

President Donald Trump has hailed a "big victory" in U.S. mid-term elections after Democrats seized the House of Representatives but Republicans consolidated their grip on the Senate.

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, one of the Democrats who is considering the 2020 presidential race, said that the two years since Trump ascended to the White House had ushered a new generation of women into public life. Tammy Baldwin held off a challenge from Republican Leah Vukmir, but her fellow Democrats Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Claire McCaskill of Missouri were defeated by their Republican opponents.

A Democrat-controlled House will hamper Trump's pro-business agenda and could lead to uncertainty about his administration, but corporate tax cuts and deregulation measures that have played a large hand in the USA stock market's rally since the 2016 election are likely to remain untouched. And it made clear the extent to which Trump has remade his party to his own specifications, as he suggested that those who survived were indebted to him, a president who prizes loyalty above all else. But his message also appeared to alienate well-educated voters - especially women - in the suburbs.

Internal Revenue Service law allows House and Senate tax-writing committees to request federal returns, and the ranking Ways and Means Democrat, Rep. Richard Neal of MA, has signaled publicly he would ask for them - a move the White House might fight.

There are a half dozen House committees that have the power to investigate Trump - Intelligence, Oversight, Ways and Means, and Judiciary, among others.

"Too bad, Mike", Trump said of Coffman, before turning on Utah's Mia Love, whose race remained too close to call.

"I plan to shine a light on waste, fraud and abuse in the Trump administration", Cummings said Wednesday.

Trump's claim that those who backed him were successful was not without exceptions.

Washington analysts say they expect that Mueller, now that the election is over, will soon release more information from his investigation and possibly indict more figures tied to Trump's 2016 campaign.


"I am so honoured to share both the ballot and the stage with the many visionary, bold women who have raised their hand to run for public office", said Ayanna Pressley, who became the first black woman elected to Congress from MA.

The president's rebuke was felt on Capitol Hill.

Control of the committees - where the three lawmakers are now the highest-ranking Democrats - will hand them the unilateral power to issue subpoenas if they wish, as well as to demand documents and testimony from White House officials and important figures in Trump's campaign team and businesses.With control of the legislative apparatus in the House, they will also have more money and staff for investigations. "Angers me to my core".

Former US president Barack Obama, who campaigned across the country for Democrats, warned Americans that in his first two years in office President Trump has de-shaped America. Those Illinois victories contributed to the Democrats winning control of the House.

The author of "A young diplomat in Trump's America" told France 24: "First of all they should think how can we respond to the fears, to the anxieties in the United States right now, from the core part of the electorate that doesn't just vote Democrat".

But she added: "A Democratic Congress will work for solutions that bring us together because we have all had enough of division".

Trump said he is "looking at different people for different positions", adding that "it is very common after the midterms".

But Republicans performed strongly in the deep red states where Trump mounted a frenetic final campaign blitz and proved that despite his low approval rating he remains a potent political force among conservatives.

"I come in here as a nice person wanting to answer questions and I have people jumping out of their seats shouting questions at me", he complained.
