Defiant Trump blames media, fellow Republicans for House losses

US Democrats win House, Republicans keep Senate

US Democrats win House, Republicans keep Senate

Many female Democratic House candidates who prevailed on Election Day ran in opposition to Trump or his policies.

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".

For context, Trump told repoters that during President Barack Obama's first midterm election that the Democrat's party lost Senate seats, including in MA.

"Now it is time for members of both parties to join together, put partisanship a side, and keep the American economic miracle going strong". "I want to probe senior administration officials across the government who have abused their positions of power and wasted taxpayer money, as well as President Trump's decisions to act in his own financial self-interest".

Trump suggested at several points that if the Democrats pursue an investigation, it will lead to division and legislative back-and-forths on Capitol Hill: "They can play that game, but we can play it better". LePage governed largely by mobilizing the House minority Republican caucus to sustain a record number of 642 vetoes - more than all other ME governors combined going back to 1917 and 80 times as many as his predecessor, Baldacci.

"I think it is a reminder that it has to be done so that legally it meets the law", Neal said.

"It should never have been started because there was no crime", he said.

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

"It's a huge moment and victory for the president", Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters at the White House Tuesday night.

Trump said he hadn't asked Pence yet but then turned to the vice president and said: "Mike, will you be my running mate?" "When you report fake news, which CNN does a lot, you are the enemy of the people". Trump said he was moving on, and the reporter actually refused to give up the microphone when an aide tried to take it. "I'm not sure that I should be happy or sad but I feel just fine about it". Republicans are likely to expand their majority in the Senate, and Democrats lost some governorships that they badly wanted, especially in OH and Florida.

In Florida, a progressive Democrat conceded after an ugly battle against Trumpist conservative Ron DeSantis.

But the olive branch he extended was studded with thorns as he declared that he would retaliate if Democrats use their control of the House to issue subpoenas to seek his tax returns and investigate his business dealings, his Cabinet's conduct and his campaign's ties to Russian Federation, as expected.

US House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi celebrates the Democrats winning a majority in the US House of Representatives with House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (left), her grandson Paul (third right) and other Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) members.

Wrapping up the campaign in recent days, Trump repeatedly raised fears about immigrants, issuing harsh warnings about a caravan of Central American migrants that is moving slowly through Mexico towards the U.S. border.

Yet Trump's party will maintain Senate control for the next two years, at least.

"These are things we can accomplish with the support and collaboration of our Republican colleagues", Libby said.

"Now, listen, I know for a fact none of us ran to make history, we ran to make change".

But without overwhelming numbers, Democrats will not have the strength to push numerous initiatives their left flank ran on: a single-payer health care system, boldly expanded college access and an Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency that is at least reined in.

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.

A nation deeply divided along geographic and cultural lines delivered a split verdict in an election cast as a referendum on the president. Women were 21 points more likely to vote for Democrats than Republicans in House races - 60 percent voted for Democrats, to 38 percent who voted for Republicans.
