If the bills didn't pass, Trump could use this failure to lambast the Democrats for refusing to govern responsibly.

"Or we can work together", he said, adding that "it really could be a lovely bipartisan type of situation".

He suggested they could co-operate on issues such as infrastructure, trade and health.

"We did this in spite of a very dramatic fundraising disadvantage driven by Democrats' wealthy donors and special interests and very hostile media coverage, to put it mildly", Trump said at the White House on November 7. Democrat Andy Kim declared victory over Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-NJ), the architect of the compromise weakening preexisting conditions protections that got Obamacare repeal through the House past year.

Said Tom Shields, a Republican political consultant and president of Lansing-based Marketing Resource Group Inc. said Whitmer "didn't do anything to upset the wave and stop it from coming".

Instead, he could do something far bolder - namely, make moves to turn our interminable ideological stalemate into a genuine partisan realignment by dividing and conquering the new Democratic majority. A self-styled progressive, Tlaib is a vocal critic of President Donald Trump and was arrested two years ago for disrupting a Trump speech in Detroit.

'If last night was billed as a Referendum on how Trump has performed as President then you would have to say he passed'. Republican Rep. Martha McSalley held a slim lead over Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, a Democrat.

The president also mocked Republicans who did not "embrace" him on the campaign trail, and went on to lose their election races.

There was a fair amount of overlap in 2016 between Mr Trump's and Bernie Sanders' supporters - Mr Trump can rest assured that the progressive left did not appear to be very energised by Tuesday's results.

With any luck, the USMCA defeat also convinces Trump to have second thoughts about his costly trade war.

In ill-tempered exchanges, he called a CNN correspondent "a rude, bad person" and told an NBC reporter: "I'm not a big fan of yours either". We impeached President Clinton.

Brad's legal team isn't too anxious about that, though, seeing that the actor was never criminally charged with anything. We're told the custody trial should take somewhere between 2 and 3 weeks, and then the judge has to sort it all out.

If anything, I'm hoping for more offbeat characters like Piranha Plant instead of yet another sword user. These battery-powered portable devices were big in the '80s, even predating the launch of the Game Boy.

The testing first focused on the brand's traditional core areas of expertise - a chassis and engines, which the company enhanced. In Italy, the test cars were driven round the high-speed Nardò test tracks with a focus on top speeds, cooling and handling.

Trump has frequently been combative with reporters, and painted the news media as "enemies of the people", but Wednesdays press conference raised the level of his hostility.

Shortly thereafter, however, it was announced that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had been forced out. All the while, the Senate is set to continue to methodically confirm Trump's nominees to the courts while holding a check on any Democrat-led legislation in the House. And when PBS Newshour correspondent Yamiche Alcindor asked him if he thought his rhetoric emboldened white nationalists he called it "such a racist question".

"Our agenda is about making life better for working Americans".

Previous presidents who have suffered mid-term setbacks have professed humility and said they learned valuable lessons. In Virginia's 10th District in the D.C. suburbs, Democrats ran ads against ousted in GOP Rep.

Several GOP senators who were at times thorns in Trump's side are now gone.

Key House races have continued to break Democrats' way as final votes trickle in across the country two days after Election Day, giving them 31 more seats and counting in the House.

The Republicans are on course to increase their representation from 51 to 54 in the 100-seat Senate upper chamber. Indeed, by Wednesday night the race was still not called, though Love trailed Democratic challenger Ben McAdams by about 5,000 votes with 30 percent of precincts still outstanding.

The Republican Senate candidate was also leading in Arizona while Democrats picked up a Republican Senate seat in Nevada.

For the former, Trump won on race, immigration and misogyny, assembling a coalition of white voters energised by all that talk of walls and Muslim bans and ramped-up deportations of immigrants, framed disproportionately as rapists and murderers and drug dealers. Assuming that neither Georgia nor Wisconsin's outcome changes substantially after potential legal action, the national results would add up to Democrats gaining exactly six governorships. Two years later, she became the first woman of color elected to Congress in CT, and will represent the state's fifth congressional district, which includes Newtown, New Britain, and Woodbury.

Democrats' takeover of the House in January will allow them to force administration officials to testify and provide documents.

At 29, Ocasio-Cortez is the youngest woman ever elected to Congress.
