Republican Donald Trump elected President of the United States of America

Republican Donald Trump elected President of the United States of America

That means that the only obviously Trump-skeptical Republican to win a statewide race on Tuesday-the newly elected senator-to-be from Utah, Mitt Romney-may not have much leverage either. Never mind the impact on suburban Republicans who paid the price with their House seats.

Hans Noel, a professor of government at Georgetown University, is wary of the conventional wisdom that jells so quickly on election night.

"The message they were trying to send us is you've got to beat Trump in the battleground states, and you've got to run on very mainstream, nonextreme Democratic ideals and values".

Ideas reached him in his office the day after the midterms.

"It was a big day yesterday, an incredible day", Trump told a news conference at the White House.

The interview is edited and condensed.

Senator Sherrod Brown could be the dark horse who benefits the most from the 2018 midterms.

"The single reason we don't have more women in office is traditionally because not enough women want to run", Dew Steele said. Then, afterwards, there's this rush to create a narrative.

The president campaigned on behalf of the candidates, pulling off 26 rallies since October 1, and nine in the last four days before the election.

The point is that under the leadership of the exact same corrupt incompetent leaders who delivered Hillary Clinton as the 2016 candidate (having rigged the ballot against Bernie Sanders) the Democrats have wasted two whole years chasing a Russian chimera, teaming up with Trump's deep-state opponents, and sticking to the Clinton-era orthodoxies on the economy, failing to highlight the extreme voter suppression of poor and minority electors the leaders have led, well, not very far.

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

This was sort of a muddle.

Jeff Sessions forced out after months of Trump abuse over Mueller probe
Richard Blumenthal said President Donald Trump's firing of Attorney General Jeff Sessions is a "break the glass moment". That duty has belonged to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller and closely monitors his work.

Meet Trump's New Acting Attorney General, Matthew Whitaker
Trump repeatedly lamented that he would have never selected Sessions if he had known the attorney general would recuse himself. Here is a look at how Whitaker might stop or slow the Mueller investigation and the risks he might run in doing so.

'Modern Family' reveals unexpected pregnancy: 'It's going to be a bumpy ride'
Adding to the twist is the fact that the baby's father could either be Dylan or Haley's ex Arvin ( Chris Geere ). Fans of the show might have already expected that she was expecting, especially after Hyland posted this hint.

The forecast for Tuesday's midterm elections called for a blue wave to crash on our shores.

"You have some that said, 'Let's stay away, let's stay away.' They did very poorly", Trump said.

Top Democrats said they would use their control of both chambers to take action on several key issues, including funding Medicaid expansion, keeping $160 million in school funding in place and addressing the opioid crisis, as well as workforce development, student debt relief and promotion of renewable energy. He said there was a "ton of work" still to be done on issues ranging from opioid addiction to housing and climate change, but didn't offer any specific new proposals for his second term. How can party leaders balance that desire with their own concerns about overreaching?

Democrats also closed the GOP's 27-11 supermajority in the Senate, shrinking the gap to 22-16. The worst thing would be for Trump to appear vindicated by the process. It's a question of whether the Democrats can slowly manage all of that - have hearings, subpoena the president's tax returns, and spread it out over the course of two years.

While losing the House represents a partial loss of power for Republicans, it also removes part of the responsibility Democrats have placed on Trump for delays in passing legislation. Did that happen with House Republicans this time?

Hours after the election results became clear, Mr Trump tweeted a warning Wednesday morning that he was ready to fight fire with fire.

What else struck you about this election?

One of Emerge's goals is to build a pipeline of female candidates at the local and state levels that could feed into federal races. State-level actors make important decisions about redistricting.

The Times also slams Trump's focus on his "Hire American" immigration policy, but it did not follow the money that would explain the huge political gaps between the nation's swing-voters and the establishment's cadre of wealthy, investment-maximizing donors.

Unofficial returns from Tuesday's election showed Baker winning about two-thirds of the vote in his race against Democrat Jay Gonzalez, including solid showings in Democratic-leaning urban areas of MA. So there's potential effect there.

Among governorships, Democrats netted seven, including big states such as MI and IL and Wisconsin, where incumbent Gov. Scott Walker was ousted after two terms. He cited "questionable things" done by Democrats, including "leaks of classified information".

Over the last two years there was always this sense that while the president's thunderous championing of white nationalism and anti-immigrant rhetoric and policies was hurting him in the heavily Mexican-American parts of the southwestern U.S., it was the key to unlock the Rustbelt and Midwest - the part of the country seen as the one which gave him the presidency.
