Democrats have gained the majority in the House of Representatives, leaving Democrats now able to restrict Trump’s ambitions and deal with him over their political agenda.

 

Democrats have gained millions more votes across the country but President Trump’s supporters have defeated Democrats again over the election for the Senate.

 

The Resident of the White House has tweeted “There’s only been 5 times in the last 105 years that an incumbent President has won seats in the Senate in the off year election.’’

 

According to reports, in the states of Indiana and Texas voters have witnessed a close competition between two parties.

 

In Texas, Republican candidate Senator Ted Cruz has maintained his seat by a narrow margin beating Democrat Beto O’Rourke.

 

Cruz thanked his supporters and tweeted ‘’ Now let’s get back to work to defend jobs, freedom, and security for Texas and America!’’.

 

In one of the most important ballots in Indiana State, current Senator Joe Donnelly has conceded to Mike Braun. “A few minutes ago, I called Mike Braun and congratulated him on winning a hard-fought race.’’ The losing candidate added in his statement “It has been one of the greatest honors of my life to represent Indiana in the Senate. I wish Mike the best, and I hope he makes every single Hoosier proud as our senator.”

  

The Republican Party went to the election with 43 majority seats but following a wave of dissatisfactions the Democrats have gained the 23 seats needed to win control of the House.

The House Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said: “It’s about stopping the GOP and [Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell’s assault on Medicare and Medicaid, the Affordable Care Act, and the health care of 130 million Americans living with pre-existing medical conditions.”

This is while spokesperson for Pelosi confirms that Trump congratulated her. “President Trump called Leader Pelosi at 11:45 p.m. this evening to extend his congratulations on winning a Democratic House Majority,” Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff Drew Hammill tweeted.
