Democrats ready to investigate Trump's foreign policy

Trump was expected to further address the results at a White House news conference later Wednesday.

As of Wednesday night, votes were still being counted in the "Democratic stronghold" of Broward County, and the county election supervisor doesn't know how many are left, the Sentinel writes Unofficial results are expected by Friday, but officials are already noticing something odd - about 680,000 voters picked a governor's candidate, but only 656,000 chose someone for Senate. Meanwhile, key state-level wins will give Democrats the chance to redraw districts and undo gerrymandering. Many younger House Democrats, including some of the newly elected, have pledged to vote against her. The Democratic majority should hold high-profile hearings and votes on legislation to enact a $15-an-hour minimum wage, expand health-care guarantees, end price-gouging by pharmaceutical corporations, rewrite the tax code and avert austerity, protect immigrants, and revoke blank checks for unauthorized military interventions overseas.

His Serve America PAC endorsed 34 House candidates in total.

"And last night... the Republican Party defied history to expand our Senate majority while significantly beating expectations in the House".

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.

Neal and Representative Bill Pascrell, who is set to chair the Ways and Means trade subcommittee, are promising to haul Trump's top trade lieutenants into hearings not only to explain their strategy on China but also on future trade negotiations with the European Union, Japan and Britain.

The Republicans lost the House by a comparatively small margin and gained firmer control of the Senate.

Now that they've lost, the question becomes, who is the leader of the new Democratic party?

China Daily mischaracterized Democrats in tough races as shying away from "harsh criticism of Trump" and portrayed them as winning an extraordinarily large number of House seats compared to previous first-term elections.

The party adopted a trio of policy goals which proved favourable: reducing health care costs, creating jobs through infrastructure investment, and offering a reform package to clean up politics. Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota, Joe Donnelly in IN and Claire McCaskill in Missouri.

"I don't think we can discount the impact of suburban voters", he said.

Numerous issues already have been put forward by Representative Eliot Engel, the top Democrat on the Foreign Affairs Committee. This helped Republicans, as older voters skew more Republican.

Both candidacies are a direct affront to Clyburn, the highest-ranking African-American in Congress, who is in line to become the whip. Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, whose parties lost the House in the middle of their first terms, used the defeats to recalibrate for successful re-election campaigns.

The Republican side of the aisle elected mostly white men.

As long as Republicans have controlled both houses of Congress, Democrats have been hampered in pursuing any significant probes of Trump and his administration, and he made it clear he expects the Senate to follow that course.

He denied using a migrant caravan making its way to the United States border through Mexico to whip up fear ahead of Tuesday's election to win votes.

Trump boasted a growing economy but campaigned aggressively in the closing days on a hardline anti-immigration message.

"You just voted. How did you react to everything that has happened in the past few months?"

Pelosi vowed to push for a range of actions to stem gun violence, including restrictions on high-capacity magazines and a measure allowing temporary removal of guns from people deemed an imminent risk to themselves or others.

Pennsylvania was particularly daunting for Republicans after court-imposed redistricting and a rash of retirements put several seats in play.

The Democratic leader is positioned to return to the speaker's office after Democrats took back the House in Tuesday's midterm elections. At least three other red districts flipped to blue. They have a long list of topics they plan to look into, including financial deregulation, Trump's business interests and Russia's election interference.

'Along with this the Republicans increased their majority in The Senate. "There was an opposite reaction in highly suburban areas".

The GOP campaign committee distanced itself from eight-term Rep. Steve King of Iowa after he was accused of racism and anti-Semitism, but he won anyway.

"We always knew these races are going to be close", said Rep. Katherine Clark of MA, co-chair of House Democrats' recruitment efforts.

U.S. Rep. Richard Neal, of MA, is the ranking member on the House Ways and Means Committee and is expected to take over as chairman of the panel when the Democrats assume control of the House in January after winning a majority of seats in Tuesday's election.
