In fact, McConnell called for "bipartisanship" numerous times and even offered some advice for his Democratic counterparts who retook the House majority and have promised multiple oversight investigations of the president, including a quest for his tax returns. It's a recipe for "yet more partisanship and acrimony in DC", Blanchard adds.

Trump, who had spent months demonizing Democrats as lawless "mobs" and telling his rally crowds that their ascendancy would tank the economy and plunge the nation into crime-ridden chaos, said Wednesday it was time for bipartisan co-operation. "They don't see politics as the arena in which they want to serve their community, and this did flip for us certainly after that election".

Tuesday's midterm elections boosted Republicans' Senate majority, but Democrats serving on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee acknowledged the importance of controlling at least one chamber of Congress. They've come out over the past year in the Republican administration's protectionist trade policies and in moves to restrict immigration.

Sanders, who plans to meet with House allies next week, will push for Democrats there to advance the first step of his "Medicare for all" bill's four-year phase-in plan, which would lower the eligibility age for Medicare to 55 from 65 and cover everyone under 18-years-old.

The Democrats' net gain of 36 seats pales in comparison to the Tea Party wave of 2010, when Republicans captured 63 seats in the House.

The president's rebuke was felt on Capitol Hill. The Democratic majority should hold high-profile hearings and votes on legislation to enact a $15-an-hour minimum wage, expand health-care guarantees, end price-gouging by pharmaceutical corporations, rewrite the tax code and avert austerity, protect immigrants, and revoke blank checks for unauthorized military interventions overseas. "The president, by the Constitution, is granted diplomatic power". Many have openly spoken of impeaching the commander in chief.

"You don't need to worry about a tiresome period", said national security expert Anthony Cordesman of the Center for Strategic and International Studies. "I don't know that control [of Congress] is the issue. I think their opinions should matter".

Republicans, though, pointed to Trump's 8-point victory in OH in 2016, and the four campaign visits he made to the state, including a southwest OH jaunt three weeks before the election. Cory Booker (D), California Sen.

As Trump and Pelosi extended overtures across Pennsylvania Avenue, they also shadowboxed around the new dynamic created by the House's ability to probe the president's business dealings and his administration. "Not to mention basic decency", Schiff tweeted.

"The return to political gridlock in Washington will likely serve to temper growth expectations, or at least moderate the prospect of additional stimulative fiscal policy", said Jon Hill, US Rates Strategist at BMO Capital Markets in NY.

"The United States can maintain a secure border and the rule of law while still upholding our country's values to protect those fleeing persecution and violence". Many younger House Democrats, including some of the newly elected, have pledged to vote against her.

"The White House should drag it out, bog it down, take the momentum away and make it go on forever", said Gingrich.

"The historic totals capped off a campaign season in the wake of President Donald Trump's election that was defined in large part by female activism", the CNN report said. And the effects of Democrats' strong night at the top of the ticket spilled down ballot.

Trump has also rebranded the Republican Party, in some ways dramatically, says Cal Jillson, a presidential scholar at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. "It's going to depend on how people perceive the opportunity".

"The single reason we don't have more women in office is traditionally because not enough women want to run", Dew Steele said.

U.S. Rep. Erik Paulsen, running in Minnesota's 3rd Congressional District race, hugs his wife, Kelly, after making his concession speech. They will likely pick up a few more. "This is a different political environment than any I've encountered during my adult life". I'd probably bet on Trump. He baits them and they dive in, and what he's done well, I thought, is appeal to their own narcissism, to their own ego. "These are things they never talk about".

Trump's inflammatory anti-immigrant rhetoric - deemed racist by many - has recently included misinformation about a migrant caravan traveling by foot through Central America and Mexico for the US border, along with his questionable threats to upend birthright citizenship.

Dems tend to do well in urban areas but the real story Tuesday may have been Democratic gains in the suburbs, said Weinfeld, the MSU expert. With the Democratic majority relatively thin, there wouldn't be a lot of room to maneuver.
