Can Dems Reverse Trumponomics After Winning Back The House?

Election 2018: As the election results show, the Senate will be Republican. The House will be Democratic. What does that midterm outcome mean for President Trump's economic policies of tax cuts, aggressive trade sanctions, immigration and deregulation? Gridlock.

The exact numbers of each branch may not be known for days, but as of late election night, it was clear Republicans had enlarged their hold on the Senate, while Democrats had taken back control of the House.

But as it appears late Tuesday, there was no "blue wave" for the Democrats. Just a run-of-the-mill changeover, as is common in midterm elections.

As of now, it's not clear whether California Rep. Nancy Pelosi will maintain her grip on the Democratic Party in the House. Even if she doesn't, however, we can expect a number of things from Congress.

One, Pelosi or whoever leads the Democrats will seek multiple investigations of President Trump, everything from his tax returns to Russian meddling in the 2016 election to his past business dealings.
