The Democrats gained more than the 23 seats they needed for a majority in the 435-seat lower chamber.

High voter turnout for Democrats was widely expected but less expected was that Republican enthusiasm for this midterm vote was not all that diminished. "Votes are still being counted, so the results are not final at the time of writing".

"They can play that game, but we can play better because we have a thing called the United States Senate, and a lot of questionable things were done between leaks of classified information and many other elements that should not have taken place", Trump said during the almost 90-minute session with reporters in the White House East Room. It is because Americans understand that an unceasing influx of people can be complicated to absorb.

The Republicans were most successful in the Senate, which could ultimately make up for their loss of power in the House of Representatives.

But he said the Senate's chief priority will be confirming Mr. Trump's nominees, including judicial picks. At age 29, Ocasio Cortez of NY seizes the record from Republican Elise Stefanik, who was elected at age 30 in 2014. President Trump also cited this as an area where he could work with Democrats in 2016, but nothing has happened to date.

But historical precedent suggests that an aggressive strategy targeting the president may backfire come 2020. Sen.

While House Democrats may not support this plan, they would likely be willing to support something that mainly relies on just federal spending.

They argue that such favors to Trump include Chinese government trademarks for his companies, payments for hotel room stays and event-space rentals by representatives of Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, and proceeds from Chinese or Emirati-linked government purchases of office space in Trump Tower.

As the returns came in, voters were on track to send at least 99 women to the House, shattering the record of 84 now. "And politicians have learned to tap into them".

The President said: "They can play that game, but we can play it better, because we have a thing called the United States Senate".

The Republican side of the aisle elected mostly white men.

Republicans must also loudly promote their success with two of the country's most enduring, important issues: the economy and national security. Ousting the two-term Democrat had been a personal quest for Mr. Trump.

On Tuesday night, he called to congratulate Pelosi and acknowledged her plea for bipartisanship, the leader's spokesman said. They need to be reminded why.

Tuesday's elections also tested the strength of a Trump-era political realignment defined by evolving divisions among voters by race, gender, and especially education. "And she lost. Too bad, sorry about that, Mia!"

"I am so honoured to share both the ballot and the stage with the many visionary, bold women who have raised their hand to run for public office", said Ayanna Pressley, who became the first black woman elected to Congress from MA.

According to Democrats, Tuesday was supposed to be a blue wave election. Instead, he rattled off a list of candidates who won after he'd campaigned on their behalf, then mocked some of his fellow Republicans who "didn't want the embrace" from him so close to the election.

And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the former Bernie Sanders organizer who won an upset primary victory over a senior House Democrat, will also head to Congress. Democrats say questions remain about Russian money laundering and Trump's businesses.

37 percent of Republicans prioritized cutting taxes.

When the Florida and Arizona Senate races are decided, Republicans will have from 52 to 54 seats. Never mind the impact on suburban Republicans who paid the price with their House seats.

The GOP campaign committee distanced itself from eight-term Rep. Steve King of Iowa after he was accused of racism and anti-Semitism, but he won anyway.

Only two other Muslims have been elected to Congress, and both are men now in office: Ellison and Indiana Democratic Rep. Andre Carson.

Rep. Elijah Cummings, the Maryland Democrat poised to take charge of the House Oversight Committee, said in a statement to The Associated Press that he intends to use the panel as "a check on the executive branch - not merely for potential criminal violations, but for much broader concerns, such as conflicts of interest, emoluments violations and waste, fraud and abuse".
