Trump warns House Democrats against investigating his administration

President Donald Trump took a buoyant view of midterm elections that saw his Republicans lose control of the House of Representatives.

In an extraordinarily combative news conference Wednesday after voters delivered him a rebuke by giving control of the House to Democrats, President Trump went after Republicans, Democrats and the media.

"Mia Love gave me no love and she lost", Trump said.

The Republicans' control of the Senate is arguably more significant, says the BBC's Aleem Maqbool in Washington, because Mr Trump focused his campaigning on Senate races, and candidates he backed clearly benefited.

Russian President Vladimir Putin denies any involvement in Trump's election victory, and the Kremlin shrugged off concerns that a Democratic-controlled House would increase pressure on Russia.

Trump cited health care and infrastructure as areas where the two parties could work together. And it made clear the extent to which Trump has remade his party to his own specifications, as he suggested that those who survived were indebted to him, a president who prizes loyalty above all else.

Mr Trump's remarks on party dynamics came after Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell said he had spoken with House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi about how they might "find a way forward" in a divided Congress next year. "I don't want to comment on that, otherwise I will run the risk of being accused of interfering in their midterm election", foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said.

"The Trump thing works", says GOP pollster Frank Luntz. Trump called the investigation "a disgrace", saying it "should never have been started, because there is no crime".

Trump reeled off a shopping list of disadvantages he claimed that the Republicans had faced going into Tuesday's vote, including "wealthy donors and special interests" for the Democrats, and "very hostile media coverage". CNN's White House correspondent debated the president about the caravan - "It was not an invasion" - and questioned whether Trump was demonizing immigrants.

"You are a rude, bad person", Trump told Acosta.

Trump said there would be some changes in top administration jobs, though "nothing monumental".

"That's enough, put down the mic", Trump said.

WASHINGTON (AP) -Democrats have won half the seats they need to reclaim the House majority, while Republicans were picking up key Senate contests. The Arizona Senate race is too close to call and Democrats won all the important races in Colorado, New Mexico and Nevada.

Though prominent figures like Andrew Gillum, the Democratic candidate for governor of Florida, failed to win their potentially historic elections, many candidates around the country became the first person of their gender, race, ethnicity or sexual orientation to be elected to their positions in their states, or in some cases, in the country. This will include a review of the heretofore elusive Trump corporate and individual income tax returns.

Over the last two years there was always this sense that while the president's thunderous championing of white nationalism and anti-immigrant rhetoric and policies was hurting him in the heavily Mexican-American parts of the southwestern USA, it was the key to unlock the Rustbelt and Midwest - the part of the country seen as the one which gave him the presidency. "We have to make sure that we are advancing a common sense majority platform that America wants, and let's hope that we can bring Republicans aboard with us".

A CNN/SSRS poll released Monday showed Democrats with a gaping 55% to 42% lead over Republicans among likely voters in a generic congressional ballot.

The mixed verdict in the first nationwide election of Trump's young presidency underscored the limits of his hardline immigration rhetoric in America's evolving political landscape, where college-educated voters in the nation's suburbs rejected his warnings of a migrant "invasion". That echoed a similar message from Trump, who on Twitter cautioned Democrats not to use their new House majority to launch investigations into his administration.
