Contributor Stephanie Ruhle said Trump's tax loopholes are immoral and below the office of the presidency, but said Trump likes to suggest it's "clever" how he games the system.

Despite Democrats hailing an end to one-party dominance at the top of U.S. politics, Trump spoke of a "tremendous success". "Thank you to all!"

The main question to be answered during the current midterm elections is whether the Republicans will cede their control over the House of Representatives to the Democrats.

She says, "Maybe you get a ripple but I certainly don't think that there's a blue wave".

Tuesday's elections will determine control of Congress in the final two years of Trump's term, and about 7 in 10 in voters said which party will hold control was very important as they considered their vote. Four in 10 said they cast a vote to oppose him.

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi is hailing "a new day in America". Of the three races he targeted in the final day, the Republicans won all of them: Mike Braun defeated Democratic Sen. And other red state Senate Democrats running for re-election - Claire McCaskill in Missouri and Joe Donnelly in IN - did the same. Claire McCaskill in Missouri, Rep. Kevin Cramer over Sen.

History was working against the president in both the House and the Senate: The president's party has traditionally suffered deep losses in his first midterm election, and 2002 was the only midterm election in the past three decades when the party holding the White House gained Senate seats.

While Sanders suggested Trump could blow off Pelosi in the wake of the midterms, she noted that the president is willing to work with whatever party ultimately ends up in power.

Trump spent Tuesday at the White House, tweeting, making calls, monitoring the races and meeting with his political team.

By giving away copies of the game now, Microsoft may be hoping to lock players into its ecosystem and steer them clear of the PS4. A user on PS4Profiles, on online forum, provided images and Content ID codes apparently found on the PS4 game database.

But the majority said he was a factor - with about one-third of them saying their vote was to support Trump and another one-third saying they voted to express opposition to the president.

If the Democrats had won the Senate - which some polls were predicted - it would have made it more likely the President would have been impeached. In Kansas, Republican Kris Kobach, a Trump ally who was a leader of the president's disbanded voter fraud commission, fell to Democratic state senator Laura Kelly.

In turn, Trump has already been trying out defensive arguments, noting that midterm losses are typical for the party in the White House, pointing out a high number of GOP retirements and stressing that he had kept his focus on the Senate.

A Democratic majority in the House would break the GOP's monopoly on power in Washington and give the party a check on Trump's agenda.

Republicans had expected the GOP tax plan would be the cornerstone of their election agenda this year, but it became a potential liability in key states along the East and West coasts where residents could face higher tax bills because of limits on property and sales tax deductions.

Although moderate Republicans who remain in the House may view the result as an indictment of Trump's strategy of focusing relentlessly on illegal immigration in the final stretch of the campaign, they will be a small minority. Voters will elect Representativse for two-year terms and Senators for six-year terms.

In the past few weeks, Mr Trump has proposed revoking birthright citizenship, repeatedly called a migrant caravan headed for the United States from Mexico an "invasion", sent more than 7,000 troops to the border to block it from entering the country, and released a campaign ad that major television networks deemed too racist to air.

IN voters have a positive view of the nation's economic outlook - seven in 10 said the nation's economy is good while about 3 in 10 said it isn't. But the president received negative marks from voters on temperament and trustworthiness.

Actually passing many bills, however, will be hard because the GOP will fall well short of the 60 votes needed to break through Democratic filibusters, procedural delays that kill legislation.
