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

Pa. House and Senate remain in Republican control despite Democratic gains

One of those ways: launching into a rant and singling out vulnerable Republicans who distanced themselves from the president and lost.

"I think the message is, figure out what you can do together and do it", McConnell said, adding that the Affordable Care Act needs to be fixed but that any effort to fix the Obama-era law would have to be done "on a bipartisan basis".

Trump's post-midterm press conference covered a range of topics but focused on the question of potential investigations by the newly empowered Democrats.

"Now is the time for members of both parties to join together, put partisanship aside, and keep the American economic miracle going strong", Trump said.

McConnell eschewed further attempts to get him to respond to heated presidential rhetoric, refusing to call the migrant caravan - still hundreds of miles from the southern USA border - a "crisis", as Trump did in high profile campaign rallies created to turn out the GOP base. The ties between the two men, who are said to communicate frequently, could come under increased scrutiny by Democrats. "All you are going to do is end up in back and forth and back and forth". "I don't want to comment on that, otherwise I will run the risk of being accused of interfering in their midterm election", foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said.

The House Democrats hope this will be a shadow investigation of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, without the special counsel's required secrecy. And if there's a total impasse, Trump said, "government comes to a halt and I would blame them".

It was "such a very Big Win", he tweeted, "and all under the pressure of a Nasty and Hostile Media!" White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders sought to minimize Democratic gains in that chamber, but called retaining control of the Senate a "huge moment and victory for the president". "They ignored the party bosses who said they should wait their turn".

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

Republicans backed by the White House defeated Democratic senators in several states won by Trump in 2016 - Florida, Indiana, Missouri and North Dakota.

The Department of Homeland Security disputes that characterization, and the story has been updated with DHS comment. Instead, the tents will serve as temporary shelters for border security reinforcements.

"Democrats have the people; Republicans have the real estate", one pundit said of the results.

Democrats gained seven governorships but fell short in a high-profile race in Florida, which - as Trump noted on Wednesday - is expected to play a key role in the 2020 presidential election.

Democrats have promised to hold oversight hearings on the Trump administration when they take the majority in January.

For her part, Pelosi has said that without bipartisan support, Democrats are unlikely to pursue impeachment charges against the president, although that too could change. After almost 18 months, Mueller has not brought any indictments related to collusion with Russian Federation, the central theme of his investigation.

Some Democrats have already vowed to force the release of his tax returns.

The president's party will maintain control of the executive branch of the government, in addition to the Senate. Because we have a thing called the United States Senate.

"John Faso. Those are some of the people that decided for their own reason not to embrace, whether it's me or what we stand for", Trump said.

Trump, a former Democrat, could of course choose to find some common ground with Nancy Pelosi, who may want to demonstrate that her party can help govern rather than just attack the president.

The mixed verdict in the first nationwide election of Trump's young presidency underscored the limits of his hardline immigration rhetoric in America's evolving political landscape, where college-educated voters in the nation's suburbs rejected his warnings of a migrant "invasion". President Trump wants as much as $5 billion to fund the southern border wall, but senior House Democratic advisers have told ABC News that Democrats, with a newly-reclaimed majority - will be loathe to provide one cent for that kind of funding.
