For Trump, the evening unfolded at a watch party in the White House residence, where the East Room and the State Dining Room were set up with large-screen TVs. Such citations could be taken to federal court for possible legal action. As this was the region that was seen as one which gave Trump the presidency, the deep rejection of the GOP there has to be seen as a unsafe development for the president.

Some Democrats have already vowed to force the release of his tax returns. Then he asked the reporter to change the subject.

That's a big part of the story of 2018: many demographic groups swinging far more Democratic than they did in 2014, a wave year for Republicans.

He decried, as he often has for months, special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation into Trump 2016 campaign links to Russian Federation and whether Trump, as president, obstructed justice by trying to thwart the investigation. "As for the market impact, a split Congress has historically been bullish for equities and we expect to see the same pattern again", said Torsten Slok, chief worldwide economist for Deutsche Bank. He acknowledged, though, that the Treasury Department might not quickly provide the information, setting up a legal battle.

"And despite being outspent $4 million, 18 or 13 to one; despite the fact that we were running against a 10-term incumbent; despite the fact that it was your first time running for office; despite the fact that we didn't have the money; despite the fact that I'm working-class-despite all those things, we won".

"We're going to win, based on data", Pelosi of California said at the Democratic campaign headquarters in Washington. A Democratic-led House can launch investigations into President Trump's alleged infractions, and even issue subpoenas and initiate impeachment proceedings.

It also doesn't appear to give the White House the power to intervene.

Treasury Department officials have been noncommittal about what would happen if Mr Neal submits the request, and an agency spokesperson on Wednesday said, "Secretary Mnuchin will review any request with Treasury's General Counsel for legality". Voters scored Trump positively on the economy and for standing up "for what he believes in".

Would-be House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the top Democrat in the chamber, talked about political bipartisanship in a congratulatory call from Trump and has said Democrats could embrace Trump's call for infrastructure spending across the United States to fix crumbling roads and bridges and new regulations to cut the cost of prescription drugs.

The investigations, he said, would destroy any prospect of bipartisan cooperation next year. Robert Gates once said the "greatest national security threat" to the USA "is the two square miles that encompasses the Capitol Building and the White House".

In first calling on Mr Trump to disclose the records voluntarily, Mr Neal could be setting up a scenario where Mr Trump can disclose a limited amount of records and avoid having Congress comb through all of his past tax returns.

Staring down the potential loss of one-party control in Washington, President Donald Trump declared Tuesday's election results a "tremendous success" for Republicans as his party maintained its hold on the Senate while Democrats picked up seats in the House.

Fifty-eight of voters said the country is headed in the wrong direction, compared with 41 percent who said it is on the right track, according to a nationwide survey conducted in all 50 states for The Associated Press and Fox News.

But Pelosi pointedly told supporters the Democratic victory was about "restoring the Constitution and checks and balance to the Trump administration.It is about stopping the [Republicans] and Trump administration's assault" on two government-run medical insurance programs for older and impoverished Americans "and people living with pre-existing medical conditions". Democrats also reclaimed a handful of blue-collar districts carried by both former President Barack Obama and Trump.

Plus, he said, Democrats have "nothing, zero", on him. Ms Mays is now a managing director of tax policy services at PwC.

One is that it takes a lot to swing white women Democratic.

Republicans were forecast to have defeated several Democratic senators in states won by Trump - Florida, Indiana, Missouri and North Dakota.
