Tuesday's results demonstrate that citizens can offer resistance to a president by mobilising voters and supporting exceptional candidates.

"I would love to see unity, peace, love, and any other word you want to use", he said. "Too bad, sorry about that Mia".

But in Georgia, Democrat Stacey Abrams - who was hoping to become the first black female governor in the U.S. - refused to concede as her Republican opponent Brian Kemp took a commanding lead after a bitter campaign. Given the GOP hold on the Senate and White House, the chance of any of these things getting far seems close to zero.

Trump's comments come ahead of his scheduled news conference Wednesday morning.

Trump's show of support for Pelosi is not entirely out of character. Both are deal makers. He has yet to come up with a derogatory nickname for her, as he has with many of his other Democratic foes, although that could certainly change.

The letters also are the Democrats' effort to protect Mueller's evidence if Whitaker, who has been outspoken against the probe, takes steps to curtail the special counsel investigation.

"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.

Shortly after his news conference ended, Trump tweeted that he had accepted the resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who will be replaced by Sessions' chief of staff, Matthew Whitaker.

Trump singled out Love as an example.

Neal said he expected Trump's trade deal with Mexico and Canada to come before his committee soon and Democrats, who traditionally support labor unions, will want to ensure that worldwide trade benefits American workers. Trump said he "could fire everybody right now, but I don't want to stop it, because politically I don't like stopping it".

Harvick Earns Shot at NASCAR Title With Victory in Texas
It is the second year in a row that Harvick, the 2014 Cup champion, won the fall race at Texas to get into the final four. We got by him one restart and I just couldn't hold him off. "To start exactly where we were I think is a decent day".

Trump then called on NBC's Peter Alexander.

While describing Trump's proposal as a "campaign tactic", Neal added that the president's request might be able to be fulfilled if the administration is prepared to make accommodations.

A small group of House Democrats eager for new leadership made their first post-midterms salvo, aiming to complicate House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's bid for speaker.

"You are a rude, awful person", he told Acosta in front of the world's media.

But Peterson said Perdue did not say during their conversation Tuesday night that Trump would veto a version that lacked stricter work requirements. "They can play that game, but we can play it better, because we have a thing called the United States Senate, and a lot of very questionable things were done".

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

"The American people like and respect fighters, and they have elected us to put a check on the executive branch", said California Democrat Ro Khanna.

Vos said he wanted to discuss it with Senate Republican Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, who was meeting with GOP senators on Thursday to elect leaders.

"While the GOP attempts to divide and distract the public from their tax scam for the rich and their assault on Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and people with pre-existing conditions, Democrats across the country are focused on bringing people together", Nancy said in a letter to her colleagues, per NBC News. That was before Tuesday's election, though by that time most opinion polls and non-partisan forecasters had predicted that Democrats would win control of the House.

Democrats could pick up more than 30 seats in the House, but they lost significantly in the Senate races in major red states like Indiana, North Dakota and Tennessee.
