Trump blasts Roskam, other losing House Republicans, for not embracing him

Trump blasts Roskam, other losing House Republicans, for not embracing him

He cited "questionable things" done by Democrats, including "leaks of classified information".

Control of the committees - where they are now the highest-ranking Democrats - will give them the power to demand documents and testimony from White House officials and important figures in Trump's campaign team and businesses, and to issue subpoenas if needed. He was quick to distance himself from losing GOP House members who had been critical of his heated rhetoric, citing Florida Rep. Carlos Curbelo and Colorado Rep. Mike Coffman, among others.

In his first reaction to a mixed night, Trump chose to celebrate Republican successes. And it made clear the extent to which Trump has remade his party to his own specifications, as he suggested that those who survived were indebted to him, a president who prizes loyalty above all else.

The Judiciary Committee, expected to be headed by current senior Democrat Jerry Nadler, has its eyes on business conflicts of Mr Trump's family.

There are a half dozen House committees that have the power to investigate Trump - Intelligence, Oversight, Ways and Means, and Judiciary, among others.

"We can talk about the economy but the fact is we know how well we're doing with the economy", Trump said over the weekend at a Florida rally.

President Donald Trump, emboldened by Republican election wins in the Senate and scornful of GOP candidates he felt didn't sufficiently embrace his support, delivered a stark warning to the new Democratic House majority on Wednesday: Investigate me, and I'll investigate you - and the government will grind to a halt. We will fill in the gaps on the Russian investigations. But the press fails to play up Democratic demagoguery the way it does Trump's.

Michigan's urban-rural divide "may be more stark now that population is moving more into urban and metropolitan areas, but that means that the suburbs begin to play a much bigger role, and I think we saw that in MI and across the country", he said. But for the entirety of Trump's first year in office and through much of the second as well, the administration deferred to the priorities of House Speaker Paul Ryan, the most orthodox of Republican politicians.

Democrats were on course to flip at least 26 seats from Republican hands, with strong performances among suburban white women who had narrowly turned to Trump two years ago and in key battleground states such as Pennsylvania.

Of these 35, 24 were Democratic, meaning the opposition party had to keep every single one of its seats and capture four new Republican Senate positions in order to secure a working majority.

Numerous winning candidates made history, marking firsts for their race and gender. He called CNN's Jim Acosta, with whom he has frequently spared, "a rude, bad person".

And should President Trump be anxious about his chances for re-election in 2020?

The election was historic for different reasons.

It would require making an overture to the incoming Democratic majority in the House, proposing an agenda to give an added boost to American workers and the infrastructure that serves as the backbone of American industry.

"Or we can work together", he said, adding that "it really could be a lovely bipartisan type of situation". The story was now all about what comes next in Washington. But Trump is very resilient.

The White House could respond to committee demands by citing executive privilege, but that would likely result in court battles. "That's a firewall", GOP volunteer James Murr said. After eight years in the US House, she was one of the rare high-profile Republican women seeking a promotion in a campaign year defined more by the enthusiasm of Democratic women and the proliferation of Democratic female candidates.

Majorities of both men and women said they were at least somewhat concerned about women not being believed when they make allegations of sexual misconduct, but women were more likely than men to say they were very concerned about this, 52 percent to 35 percent.

A Mississippi U.S. Senate seat held by Republicans is going to a runoff, but analysts predict the GOP will have little difficulty winning in one of the nation's most conservative states.

It could have been a much bigger night for Democrats, who suffered stinging losses in OH and in Florida, where Trump-backed Republican Ron DeSantis ended Democrat Andrew Gillum's bid to become the state's first African-American governor.
