The Democrats captured the House of Representatives on Tuesday, November 6, in a mid-term retreat for Donald Trump but the US president managed to avoid a "blue wave" fear as his Democratic Party expanded its Senate majority after a polarizing, racially responsible campaign.

The victory of the Republican Senate will trigger any direct debate on the ban, even when the Democratic House will have the investigative powers to put new controls in its presidency.

Immediately after the end of the West Coast polls, Trump got to Twitter to greet his party's performance.

However, the network's projections indicated that the Democrats would take control of the House for the first time in eight years, reviving Washington's balance of power, where Trampa enjoyed an easy run after its 2016 state-run elections and its two chambers.

The Democrats were on course to reverse at least 26 seats from the Republicans hands, with strong performances among suburban white women who had been slowly turning to Trump two years ago and in key combat states like Pennsylvania.

Representative Nancy Pelosi, who is likely to return as a speaker of the House, despite the opposition of some Central Democrats, has promised that the party will serve as a counterweight – but will also work with Trump.

"Today is more than for Democrats and Republicans, it is about restoring the controls and balances of the Constitution to the Tramb administration," Pelosi told a press conference.

But he added: "A Democratic Congress will work for solutions that will bring us together, because we all have a lot of segregation."

Democrats will now be able to block legislation and illuminate a fire under Trump's feet with inquiries about its opaque finances and Russian intervention in the 2016 elections.

There is no "blue wave"

Tuesday's contest saw many historic championships in the Democratic camp: in Kansas Sharice Davids – a lawyer and former mixed martial arts fighter – became the first US woman elected to Congress.

And in the Midwest, a Somali refugee, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, the daughter of Palestinian immigrants, shared the historic distinction of becoming the first two Muslims to be elected to the US Congress.

But the most rosy expectations of some Democrats – that they could create a "blue wave" even when they play defense on the Senate map – proved to be unfounded.

The Republicans were predicted to have won many Democratic senators in states that won from Trump – Florida, Indiana, Missouri and North Dakota.

Trump has had a growing economy, but has aggressively been campaigning in recent days against a tough message against immigration.

He was confined to the scenes of a Central American migrant caravan that was headed by Mexico for the US, spoke to end the constitutional guarantee of nationality to all people born in the United States and ran a television advertisement that was considered too provocative in the air by the mainstream networked democrats with a criminally undocumented migrant.

The tramp also sent soldiers to the Mexican border and threatened to shoot illegal immigrants if they threw stones.

"It is a pre-election," said Yorgo Koutsogiogasi, a 64-year-old immigrant from Greece and managing director of a hosting company.

"Divisiveness really disrupts the country separately," said Koutsogiogasi, a Democrat, as he voted with his wife. "I vote for candidates who believe they have the ability to unite people, not to divide."

Republican voter James Gerlock, 27, said he wants to see more of the growing economic growth that Trump says is the fruit of his business-friendly policies.

"I am extremely happy with the economy," Gerkel said as he gave his election to Chicago. "I just want to keep everything moving because I love it."

Beto is missing

The Democrats have called for some great victories, with former professional hockey player Colin Allred defeating Pete Sessions, the chairman of the House of Commons and the chief rival of the legalized marijuana in the Dallas suburb.

But in Texas, Democratic Senate candidate Beto O'Rourke, a charismatic leader and a former punk rock singer who had raised an unprecedented $ 60 million in his mission to win at the Republican bastion, fell close to the ancient conservative former presidential candidate Ted Cruz.

O'Rourke told voters that Trump was wrong and described Texas as built by "immigrants, asylum seekers and refugees."

Regions around the country reported an unusually high turnout: according to Michael McDonald of the US election plan, 38.4 million Americans voted earlier than this election, compared to 27.4 million in the 2014 mid-term.

Trump had made the effort by completing a timetable for punishing rallies around the country, which was meant to boost Democratic candidates – and his own brand heading for re-election in 2020.

"Medium-term elections were, in a way, boring," Trump told a crowd in Cleveland on Monday. "Now it's like the hottest thing." – Rappler.com
