Trump faces investigation blitz from Democratic House of Representatives

In fact, McConnell called for "bipartisanship" numerous times and even offered some advice for his Democratic counterparts who retook the House majority and have promised multiple oversight investigations of the president, including a quest for his tax returns. In Mississippi, a Republican and Democrat are headed to a November 27 runoff, where the Republican is favored.

Midterm losses are typical for the party in the White House.

As for Utah Rep. Mia Love's loss Tuesday, Trump said: "Mia Love gave me no love, and she lost", adding, "Sorry about that, Mia".

"This isn't just the year of the woman, this is the year of every woman", said Cecile Richards, who served as the president of Planned Parenthood for more than a decade, noting the groundbreaking diversity among the women who have run for office this year.

Emanuel, who as a member of Congress oversaw his party's takeover of the House in 2006, said he has no doubt that what took place yesterday in House races was a rejection of the President, especially given the strength of the economy and the degree to which congressional district lines favour the Republicans.

He noted that former President Obama lost a net 63 House seats in the 2010 midterm election and former President Bill Clinton lost 54 in the 1994 midterm election, but Trump only lost less than 30 seats.

He said that he could work with Democrats on issues such as infrastructure and health care, but that if they conduct investigations into his administration, "then we're going to do the same thing, then government comes to a halt and I blame them".

Almost 40 percent of voters cast their ballots to express opposition to the president, according to AP VoteCast, the national survey of the electorate, while one-in-four said they voted to express support for Trump. The polls also show Trump was a major factor: a minority of voters voted for Trump and his policies while the majority of voters displayed an anti-Trump sentiment. And she lost. Too bad. He said in a tweet Wednesday that if they do, the Republican-controlled Senate may investigate Democrats.

Democrats won half the seats they needed to claim House control with dozens additional competitive contests remaining.

Interested in Midterm Elections?

In addition, any investigative action will also be countered with probes by the Republicans in the Senate, Trump warned. The White House revoked the press credentials of one of those reporters later Wednesday evening.

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

They began sparring after Acosta asked Mr Trump about the caravan of migrants heading from Latin America to the southern United States border.

White voters without a college degree were more likely than those with one to say they approved, 64 percent to 49 percent. Republican Ron DeSantis ousted Democratic opponent Andrew Gillum by less than one percentage point in a hotly contested race in Florida; Mike DeWine won the governorship in OH; and Republican Brian Kemp was ahead of Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams by 1.6 points with 100 percent of precincts reporting.

"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.

On Tuesday night, he called to congratulate Pelosi and acknowledged her plea for bipartisanship, the leader's spokesman said. "They ignored the party bosses who said they should wait their turn".

"Certain members of the press can not stand the fact that President Trump and Republicans defied expectations in the midterm elections - actually growing our Senate majority", he said.

"Peter Roskam - didn't want the embrace".

"You want to talk about red-hot tone ... it's unsafe", she said, citing the Nadler discussion and other examples. "Angers me to my core".

Dent said: "You know, this campaign cycle, 2018, will simply be a referendum on the President. People wouldn't understand them".
