USA president Trump shows willingness to cooperate with Democrats

Speaking at a wide-ranging White House press conference, Trump, by turns combative and conciliatory, said Democrats and Republicans should set aside partisanship to work together.

Trump suggested he will use the Senate to conduct his investigations.

Tuesday's results demonstrate that citizens can offer resistance to a president by mobilising voters and supporting exceptional candidates.

"Normally a president with an economy like the one we have now would be 10, maybe even 20 points higher", Jacobson said. "Too bad, sorry about that Mia".

Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., speaks to supporters after she was declared the victor over former Gov. Phil Bredesen in their race for the U.S. Senate Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2018, in Franklin, Tenn.

Preliminary results from Tuesday's election show the Republican majority in the 120-member House weakened from 75 to 66. If the leaners fall in their current directions, the GOP's victories in the Senate will have put it essentially out of range of a Democratic majority in 2020, a year in which the Dems have a decided advantage as the Repubs did this year.

In an interview Wednesday, U.S. Rep. Peter Welch (D-Vt.) would not say whether Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) should reclaim the speaker's gavel.

In Tuesday's midterm elections, Democrats seized control of the House after eight years in the minority, while Republicans expanded their Senate majority, leading to a split in the U.S. Congress. And it seems highly unlikely any Republican will vote for the woman their party has demonized in thousands of campaign ads. His work has also appeared in Salon, Raw Story, Truthdig, National Memo, Philadelphia Weekly, Democratic Underground, L.A. Weekly, MintPress News and many other publications. Both are deal-makers. In 2007, Trump praised her as "the best", when she was first sworn in as speaker. But he said Democrats were able to win when they focused on "bread-and-butter economic issues", the way he and Sen.

His warnings continued later in the day at the news conference.

"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.

Mueller is investigating Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 election and any collusion by Trump's campaign. I'd probably bet on Trump. Trump called the investigation "a disgrace", saying it "should never have been started, because there is no crime".

Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib have become the first Muslim women ever elected to Congress. Omar, a Democratic representative for Minnesota, will serve the states' fifth district, and Tlaib, who is also a Democrat, will serve Michigan's 13th district, which includes parts of Detroit. "It is about restoring the Constitution's checks and balances to the Trump administration".

His back-and-forth with CNN reporter Jim Acosta over Trump's hard-line immigration rhetoric grew especially heated, with Trump labeling the reporter a "very rude person" and saying the outlet "should be ashamed of itself" for employing him. "He acknowledged the Leader's call for bipartisanship in her victory remarks", Hammill's tweet said.

"If the Democrats think they are going to waste Taxpayer Money investigating us at the House level, then we will likewise be forced to consider investigating them for all of the leaks of Classified Information, and much else, at the Senate level", Trump wrote. Two can play that game! "But because Colorado remains at heart a centrist state, where common-sense economic and fiscal values still hold great sway, Republicans still have a critical role to play at the Statehouse, by ensuring that a diversity of views are heard and serving as a check on the excesses we might see if Democrats see their advantage as an opportunity to run wild". Vos said he wanted to discuss it with Senate Republican Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, who was meeting with GOP senators on Thursday to elect leaders. Trump said in a Twitter post Wednesday morning.

There also could be pressure to impeach Trump, though chances of removal from office by a Republican-controlled Senate are remote. That would certainly be unfortunate if they did, but it should be kept in mind that any such action would be dead on arrival in the Senate, where any impeachment trial would be held, as it takes a two-thirds vote to convict a president or any other official on an impeachment charge.
