Democrats have a plan if Trump fires Mueller in 'Saturday Night Massacre'

US: Democrats take the House, but there was no landslide – Nordea Markets Trump upbeat despite House loss, will hold news conference

Women were motivated to turn out after Trump's election in 2016 because they felt that issues they cared about were under threat in Washington, said Andrea Dew Steele, founder and president of Emerge America, a group that works to recruit and train Democratic women to run for office.

Most importantly of all, the Democrats took control of the House. But the races this year happened to be fought in overwhelmingly friendly territory for Republicans, with numerous Democrats up for re-election in states Trump won in 2016.

Pelosi is closely aligned with Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer in obediently saluting President Trump as he boosts military expenditures - which already account for most of the nation's discretionary spending.

However, overall, just 24 percent of the respondents said that impeaching Trump was among their first three goals for the new Congress.

He suggested they could co-operate on issues such as infrastructure, trade and health.

"To lose bc of POTUS & have him p*** on u", he said in a tweet.

But Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, who is set to regain the speaker's gavel come January, said her party has a duty to root out fraud and wrongdoing in government.

"We'd like to work together so our legislation will be bipartisan", she said.

"Two can play that game!" the president Donald Trump said via Twitter.

Mr Trump hailed "tremendous success" and an "incredible day" for his party in Tuesday's elections.

Trump even took credit for Flake's retirement.

In Georgia's 6th district, Democrats have pulled out a win this time around after losing a heated special election in early 2017. They have a very long list of topics they plan to look into, including financial deregulation, Trump's business interests and Russia's election interference.

William Hill said that Trump's odds had drifted slightly, but agreed he was still the favourite.

"You are a rude, bad person", Trump told Acosta. It is going to be a supreme challenge to get comprehensive health-care reform across, given fragmented Democratic congressional leadership and the firing of the starting pistol, at about 3 a.m. on election night, of the marathon race of about 20 Democratic presidential candidates for 2020. He told yet another reporter he was "not a fan of yours, either". The firing of Attorney General Sessions opens the way for the prosecution of all the Democrats who have lied under oath and committed other offenses, from Hillary Clinton, Loretta Lynch, and agency directors Clapper, Brennan, and Comey, down into the bowels of the Obama Administration and Clinton campaign. "And it means that, first of all, that the president's agenda won't be the legislative agenda". Mr. Muellers existence facilitates the White House in ignoring whatever hyper-partisan nonsense incoming Trump-deranged House committee chairmen Jerry (“Impeach him”) Nadler and Adam Schiff, not to dwell on the phantasmagorically absurd Maxine Waters, might do.

Democrats needed to pick up two dozen seats to seize the House majority and two seats to control the Senate.

Previous presidents who have suffered mid-term setbacks have professed humility and said they learned valuable lessons.

While Trump retains broad power over national security and USA foreign policy, the midterm election result exposes him to congressional investigations that could reverberate beyond American borders.

Rep. Mia Love (R-UT) trails Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams (D) by more than 5,000 votes, though ballots continue to trickle in there as well.

Said White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway, "I don't know that there will be much of an appetite for Democrat lawmakers to spend all of their time, or most of their time or even a fraction of their time investigating, instigating, trying to impeach and subpoena people". As of last night, Democrats hold 222 seats to the Republicans' 196 seats, with 17 races still too close to call.

Mr. Trump has a free hand in judicial appointments and foreign policy. She became a progressive star after her upset primary victory over Republican Joseph Crowley, a high-ranking House Democrat.

Of course, it's good when good women win - as in NY with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and MI with Rashida Tlaib - but just because somebody is an ex-military martial arts black-belt lesbian (I'm not making that up) doesn't mean, well, you get my point...

And in the Midwest a onetime Somali refugee, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib, who is the daughter of Palestinian immigrants, shared the historic distinction of becoming the first two Muslim women elected to the US Congress.

Female candidates fared particularly well in an election cycle that had been billed as the Year of the Woman.

At 29, Ocasio-Cortez is the youngest woman ever elected to Congress.
