Trump says 'too bad' to Republican losers who refused to embace him

In the span of one day, Trump congratulated himself for a "very Big Win" in the midterms (despite Democrats taking control of the House), threatened war with the Democrats, engaged in a war of words with reporters and took actions to take back control of the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation into his 2016 presidential campaign.

The president's post-election readout showed his determination to put a positive spin on midterms that will bring an end to GOP control of Congress and open him to Democratic-led investigations in the House.

President Trump says House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi "has earned the great honor" of being Speaker of the House. House Speaker Sara Gideon, D-Freeport, who won re-election to her House District 48 seat with almost 80 percent of the vote, said Democrats believed they would hold 89 seats once the final tallies are in.

Democrats boasted record diversity on ballots.

All 435 seats in the U.S. House were up for re-election, although fewer than 90 were considered competitive.

However, these results will not impact the majority - as the Democrats have won a clear majority in the House.

Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, a Democrat, was in a fierce battle to become America's first black woman governor, though Democrats in Florida and Maryland lost their bids to become their states' first black governors. The Democrats also busted Republican supermajorities in Michigan's Senate, North Carolina's House and Senate, and Pennsylvania's Senate. Bob Menendez, who, less than a year ago, stood trial for federal corruption charges.

Tlaib will fill the seat formerly occupied by Michigan Democratic Rep. John Conyers, who left office previous year amid accusations of sexual misconduct. Democrats flippedseats in suburban districts outside of Washington, Philadelphia, Miami, Chicago and Denver.

Some House Democrats have threatened to use the subpoena power they will gain in January to investigate Mr Trump and administration actions.

Nina McLaughlin, a spokeswoman for the Maine Republican Party, said party officials were not immediately prepared to issue a statement on the election results. "GOP needs to do better than 200 House seats and 47 percent of the popular vote".

This is a substantial loss for the Republicans, as they have so far lost 28 seats in the House to the Democrats.

But Pelosi pointedly told supporters the Democratic victory was about "restoring the Constitution and checks and balance to the Trump administration.It is about stopping the [Republicans] and Trump administration's assault" on two government-run medical insurance programs for older and impoverished Americans "and people living with pre-existing medical conditions".

"Tremendous success tonight. Thank you to all!" he tweeted.

Previous presidents who have suffered mid-term setbacks have professed humility and said they learned valuable lessons. The Republicans' three-seat expansion is a contrast to the 18 total seats lost by the Democrats in midterm elections in the Senate since 2010.

Some hurt worse than others.

Trump encouraged voters to view the 2018 midterms as a referendum on his leadership, pointing proudly to the surging economy at recent rallies.

Overall, 6 in 10 voters said the country was headed in the wrong direction, but roughly that same number described the national economy as excellent or good.

"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.

The president bet big on a xenophobic closing message, warning of an immigrant "invasion" that promised to spread violent crime and drugs across the nation.

The president's current job approval, set at 40 per cent by Gallup, was the lowest at this point of any first-term president in the modern era.

Several ambitious Democrats easily won re-election, including presidential prospects Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Elizabeth Warren of MA and Kirsten Gillibrand of NY. Trump called the investigation "a disgrace", saying it "should never have been started, because there is no crime".
