Congress of new York midterm election Senate
It seems that the Republicans have gained control of the Senate after he won in Indiana and North Dakota, adding to this the empty chair in Tennessee. Democrats, in turn, got 17 Republican seats in Congress: this is a significant advantage and for the first time since 2010, when they will prevail in the House of representatives.
In total, the Democrats won, taking at least 26 places that needed just 23 victories. Now they have enough strength to resist the President Trump and support the investigation of intervention of Russia in election 2016, the taxes of the President and separation of families in the border of the United States.
The democratic party will hardly be able to impose on the Senate, its agenda and expect that it will endorse the President, but will be able to block the initiatives of trump — and certainly does not allocate funding for the wall, even if Senate Republicans decide to press it.
