The United States 2018 elections were held on November 6th, 2018. This midterm election took place in the middle of the term of Republican President Donald Trump.
Although the Democratic opposition regained majorities in the House of Representatives in the mid-term elections in the United States, the result was not all bad for Trump who is now facing the re-election.
Elections in the United States: Democratic victory or tie? The polarized political environment of weeks ago came back strong after the elections. On Thursday, protesters in several cities asked to keep open the investigation of the ‘Russian plot’, the main threat against the Trump government.
The political course of the United States changed on Tuesday of last week. That day, in the legislative elections, two phenomena occurred simultaneously. The Democratic Party which opposes the government of President Donald Trump has regained majorities in the House of Representatives that had lost eight years ago.
At the same time, the Republicans maintained their advantage in the Senate, thanks to the fact that they defeated their opponents in key states. Both facts explain why Ed Rogers, a former adviser to Ronald Reagan and George Bush Dad, titled his column for The Washington Post as follows: ‘The Democrats won the House, but Trump won the election.’
