KING OF THE TROLLS: Trump Backs Rep. Nancy Pelosi For House Speaker!

President Donald Trump needled Nancy Pelosi on Twitter Wednesday morning following the Democrats regaining control of the House of Representatives, saying she deserved to the next speaker of the House and could help gain Republican votes. Two can play that game!

He tweeted that the midterm elections - in which Democrats defeated his Republicans to control the lower house of Congress for the first time in eight years - were "a tremendous success".

With Democrats running key House committees from January, "you can expect to see subpoenas flying in for the president's unpublished tax returns, for example, and a more stringent inquiry into Trump's links with Russia", says Politico's Jack Blanchard.

Trump faces the prospect, starting next year, of endless investigations after Democrats formally take control of the House, along with stymied policy efforts and fresh questions about the resilience of his unorthodox political coalition. In fact, "more women won House seats than ever before", says The Guardian.

A seat held by a Republican House Ag Committee member also flipped: incumbent John Faso (NY-19) lost to Democrat Antonio Delgado in a district that includes much of New York's Hudson Valley, an organic farming stronghold. "She has earned this great honour!"

However, any attempt to impeach Trump is likely to run headlong into resistance in the GOP-controlled Senate.

The president telephoned Pelosi on Tuesday night after Democrats were projected to win control of the House, and the two reportedly talked about her calls for bipartisanship in her victory speech. "Stepping down this path, I know the ropes".

Trump won those states by a combined 80,000 votes in 2016. Joe Donnelly in Indiana, Republican Josh Hawley defeating Democratic Sen.

Trump dissected the elections in a combative White House news conference that stretched to almost 90 minutes as he put a defiantly glossy sheen on the mixed midterm results and stressed his party's victories in the Senate.

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.

Mr Trump has threatened to retaliate for any Democratic investigations with his own probes in the Senate into alleged "leaks of classified information". In turn, Trump began trying out defensive arguments ahead of Election Day, noting that midterm losses are typical for the party in the White House, pointing out a high number of Republican retirements and stressing that he had kept his focus on the Senate.

What difference will the new Congress make? "Indeed, there were reports that White House officials had told the president to brace himself for a very tough night", Kurtz wrote on the Fox website.

But the 2020 election will undoubtedly be just as polarized as the last two, with surging turnout in both sides.

Overall, more voters disapproved of Trump's job performance than approved - a finding that is largely consistent with recent polling.

Trump, who had spent months demonizing Democrats as lawless "mobs" and telling his rally crowds that their ascendancy would tank the economy and plunge the nation into crime-ridden chaos, said Wednesday it was time for bipartisan co-operation.

That means that Trump can still get things done, not least confirmation of right-leaning judges with lifetime appointments. But the president received negative marks from voters on temperament and trustworthiness.

Trump, as he did throughout the campaign, also blamed the media for sowing division in the country and insisted they were to blame for the scene unfolding in the East Room.

Returning to his immigration-heavy 2016 playbook, Trump went on to unleash his full fury on a caravan of migrants slowly making their way to the southern border.

In his first reaction to what CNN describes as "a mixed night" for the U.S. president, Donald Trump chose to celebrate Republican gains.
