Key House Democrat promises hearings on GOP tax package

Midterms Usher Wave Of Young, Democratic Women Of Color Into House Trump faces a blitz of investigations from Democratic-run House

Democrats have not laid out specific policies they will advocate on the key issues of the day - on trade, relations with Russian Federation, the Middle East, health care, infrastructure, affirmative action, inequality, immigration, and on and on.

"To have Walker lose is a significant turning point that the right candidate in 2020 could win all of these states" across the industrial north, Democratic pollster Paul Maslin, who advised Democratic Sen.

"There's so much to the Trump administration that could be investigated, it's an unprecedented situation of major business entanglements around the world" linked to the USA president, said Dana Allin, senior fellow with the International Institute for Strategic Studies. "Too bad. Sorry about that, Mia". "We again (will) try to unify our country", she said.

Trump said Tuesday's results were "very close to a complete victory", despite Republicans losing control of the House. The bipartisan version that won easy Senate approval does not, and few Senate Republicans want them.

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, who made a pitch to return as speaker on Wednesday, has applauded Mr Trump's initial round of tariffs on China as a "leverage point" to negotiate fairer trade for USA products in the country.

The U.S. and Saudi Arabia have always been key allies, and Trump made the country his first stop overseas as president.

The expected future chairman of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee said in an interview with The Washington Post that the House will vote on protecting insurance guarantees for people with pre-existing conditions when Democrats are back in control of the chamber. And it seems highly unlikely any Republican will vote for the woman their party has demonized in thousands of campaign ads. Berger said the outcome shows voters support the GOP agenda, particularly on lower taxes and controlled spending. Both are deal-makers. In 2007, Trump praised her as "the best", when she was first sworn in as speaker.

Norwegian warship hits oil tanker on return from North Atlantic Treaty Organisation drills
The incident occurred at 4:26am (local time) on 8 November in Hjeltefjorden, north of Sotra, Norwegian Armed Forces said. The frigate is believed to be the KNM Helge Ingstad , which took part in NATO's massive Trident Juncture 2018 wargames.

Democrats saw wins come in for more moderate candidates. But the shift in the House clearly constitutes a repudiation of Trump's reckless policies, his violation of political and ethical norms and his repeated falsehoods.

Pelosi touched on those concerns at the news conference, saying: "I have always advanced members into leadership".

Trump singled out Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for praise and reiterated that he was reviewing Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke's job, following numerous reports of ethical violations. They will assuredly look into Trump's finances as part of their investigation into his personal involvement in corruption and collusion. China says it handles all trademark applications equally, but House committees could probe whether Beijing can exploit the Trump family's substantial intellectual property holdings in China to its political or diplomatic advantage. Trump called the investigation "a disgrace", saying it "should never have been started, because there is no crime". He said SNAP already has work requirements, but many states have been granted waivers, and a compromise could include tightening the waiver rules.

Trump has frequently been combative with reporters and painted the news media as "enemies of the people", but Wednesday's press conference raised the level of hostility. Bill Nelson, who has called for a recount. McConnell will use it well to continue getting judges and other nominees confirmed by the Senate, to block left-wing actions by the Democrats, and to set the stage for key legislative achievements the American people want (probably starting with infrastructure investments and reforms).

"If the Democrats think they are going to waste taxpayer money investigating us at the House level, then we will likewise be forced to consider investigating them for all of the leaks of classified information, and much else, at the Senate level", Trump tweeted.

Mr Trump has imposed tariffs on US$250 billion of Chinese goods to pressure Beijing to stop intellectual property theft and forced technology transfers, improve market access for U.S. firms and cut its high-tech industrial subsidy programme - major shifts away from China's state-led economic model.

The Republicans lost the House by a comparatively small margin and gained firmer control of the Senate.
