Trump urges Democrats to join hands, but remains defiant

President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he doesn’t want to let Democrats see his tax returns

The day after his party lost its lock on the U.S. Congress, President Donald Trump walked into a White House press conference ready for political combat, name-checking Republicans who he blamed for losing their seats and lashing out at reporters who challenged his assertions.

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

As of early Wednesday, Democrats had won 219 races and the Republicans 193, with winners undetermined in 23 races. In Mississippi, a Republican and Democrat are headed to a November 27 runoff, where the Republican is favored. The final count is likely to leave Democrats with a narrow majority that could be hard to manage and preserve. Democrats picked up three House seats, benefiting from strong support from suburban voters.

And Pelosi, during a news conference that was delayed because of Trump's lengthy remarks, said she had worked productively with President George W. Bush when she was speaker a decade ago on taxes and other issues, and she welcomed the chance to do so again with Trump. "We need the wall, many Democrats know we need the wall, and we're just going to have to see what happens", Trump said. At the same time, there could be regular reports about what the committee staff has found in subpoenaed records - perhaps Trump's tax returns, his company's internal financial documents, the records of his various oligarch partners in the former Soviet Union, and e-mails and other digital messages between Trump's team and people in Russian Federation. Trump as usual summed up the ridiculous Republican pretzel logic by saying "the Democrat plan would obliterate ObamaCare" at a rally this week.

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

During the campaign, Pelosi urged candidates to focus on lowering health care costs and creating jobs with infrastructure investment, and she tamped down calls for impeachment.

Meanwhile, several 2020 presidential prospects easily won re-election, including Sens.

Republicans fell short in CT, but appear well-positioned to gain one in Alaska (where the incumbent "independent" governor dropped out of the race and endorsed the Democrat).

Hours after the election results became clear, Mr Trump tweeted a warning Wednesday morning that he was ready to fight fire with fire. Nine women won governorships, tying a previous record. Read the original article.

In Kansas, Democrat Sharice Davids beat a GOP incumbent to become the first gay Native American woman elected to the House.

Trump's Republican coalition is increasingly older, whiter, more male and less likely to have a college degree. He predicted an "invasion" from the migrant caravan making its way toward the USA and decried the "radical" agenda of speaker-in-waiting Pelosi.

In response to a written request, the law says, "the Secretary [of the Treasury] shall furnish such committee with any return or return information specified in such request". These voters are concerned that the nation they've known, and that has in many ways been remarkably successful, is slipping away from them.

Unofficial returns from Tuesday's election showed Baker winning about two-thirds of the vote in his race against Democrat Jay Gonzalez, including solid showings in Democratic-leaning urban areas of MA.

In the Miami area, former Clinton administration Cabinet member Donna Shalala won an open seat, while GOP Rep. Carlos Curbelo lost his bid for a third term in a nearby district.

And outside Richmond, Virginia, one-time tea party favorite Rep. Dave Brat lost to Democrat Abigail Spanberger, a former Central Intelligence Agency operative motivated to run for office after the GOP vote to gut the Affordable Care Act.

Pennsylvania was particularly daunting for Republicans after court-imposed redistricting and a rash of retirements put several seats in play. Rep. Conor Lamb, D-Pa., was re-elected to the House. At least three other red districts flipped to blue. However, the new Democratic House majority will end the Republican Party's dominance in Washington for the final two years of Trump's first term with major questions looming about health care, immigration and government spending. In Georgia, although the Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp declared victory, the race hasn't yet been called and Democrat Stacey Abrams has not conceded.

Tlaib will fill the seat formerly occupied by Michigan Democratic Rep. John Conyers, who left office previous year amid accusations of sexual misconduct.
