Democratic chair says Trump is 'absolutely' beatable in 2020

Democratic chair says Trump is 'absolutely' beatable in 2020

"The American people have demanded accountability from their government and sent a clear message of what they want from Congress", the House Judiciary Committee's ranking Democrat, Jerry Nadler of NY, tweeted.

As the ranking Democrat, Engel has issued a steady stream of barbed commentary over Trump's policies - among them, withdrawing from the nuclear deal with Iran and weapons treaties with Russian Federation, threatening to withhold aid to Central America, slashing refugee admissions and support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen.

Democrats won half the seats they needed to claim House control with dozens additional competitive contests remaining.

They must think carefully about whether to proceed with a "presidential harassment" strategy that exploits their new majority in the House to afflict Trump, he said.

Those with presidential aspirations for the Democratic presidential nomination in the Senate include Sens. McSally was slightly ahead on November 7 afternoon with some 75 percent of the ballot counted.

"These are seats that could've been held pretty easily".

"However, the Republicans are set to increase their majority in the Senate, with ABC News suggesting a gain of three Senate seats for the Republicans".

As long as Republicans have controlled both houses of Congress, Democrats have been hampered in pursuing any significant probes of Trump and his administration, and he made it clear he expects the Senate to follow that course.

Whatever the final tally, Democrats' majority will be slim enough that they'll have to worry about defectors on both the right and left wings of their party.

"What Gillum managed to do in a very hard state, not to mention dealing with all the racism that comes against him, is run on a progressive agenda and to mount a really, really very strong grassroots campaign", Sanders said.

"It really could be a lovely, bipartisan type of situation".

Still, Pelosi said Democrats weren't elected to be "a rubber stamp" for Trump.

"This isn't just the year of the woman, this is the year of every woman", said Cecile Richards, who served as the president of Planned Parenthood for more than a decade, noting the groundbreaking diversity among the women who have run for office this year.

Mrs. Pelosi, too, offer grand visions of deals. But the only thing more stunning than hearing a sitting president dancing on the political grave of a member of his own party-something Trump did on several occasions during his 90-minute news conference Wednesday-was the fact that Rep. Mia Love (R-Utah) had not yet officially conceded her election when he tore into her for insufficiently embracing Trumpism.

After news of the shooting broke, Adam, who was a former Fox News correspondent, asked his Twitter followers for prayers. She shared a photo on Instagram of the sisters and Alaina in the bridal party at Mowry-Housley's wedding in 2011.

"There's so much to the Trump administration that could be investigated, it's an unprecedented situation of major business entanglements around the world", said Dana Allin, senior fellow with the International Institute for Strategic Studies.

Dennehy said voters don't want to see an impeachment, "Americans want peace". Dems are on track to gain 11 House seats in these states including California, a state where the GOP didn't even have a Senate candidate on the statewide ballot this year.

"I think everybody in America will understand the difference between Trump's first two years and this third and fourth year, and everybody will understand that he's responding to what Democrats have done", Sanders said.

Trump said that he was considering changes to his administration in the aftermath of the election, including to his cabinet.

This certainly was not a win for President Trump, but it was nowhere near as bad as it could've been.

He said that holds true for the spending bills Congress must still negotiate by early December. "We need the wall, many Democrats know we need the wall, and we're just going to have to see what happens", Trump said.

He said he was waiting on the Florida results and possible recount, and said Arizona is "not close to over" with perhaps 600,000 ballots still outstanding.

"And Barbara Comstock was another one", he said.

Trump had aggressively campaigned in the closing days of the race, his focus on boosting Republicans in states that he carried in 2016. Dean Heller in Nevada, was ousted. Jon Tester squeaked out a victory in Montana.

Pelosi spoke with Trump and McConnell after the Democrats' victory.

"It's clearly going to be much more challenging domestically for the U.S. than what we just experienced".

Tammy Baldwin and the state's Democratic governor, Tony Evers.

In the governor's races in Florida and Georgia, the two Democratic candidates ran on unabashedly progressive platforms after beating more traditional, establishment candidates in the primaries.

In the House, Democrats made significant gains in Pennsylvania, Virginia, New Jersey and NY.
