"Great to be here, although as I said, WE REJECT GLOBALISM!"

"In that case, go home!"

If the Democrats screw around for two years it'll be a Red Tsunami of epic proportions in 2020. All Trump has to do is compare his first two years ( pre Dem house ) with the 2nd half ( Dem House control ) and ask the people "Which was better for America?" What'll the Dems say... "We were investigating his taxes! The Russians! Impeach!"??

Silly man. After eight years of Obama supremely improving the economy, that didn't work. Why would you ever think it would work for Trump, someone the people hate, when it didn't even work for Obama, someone the people loved?

You people seem to want to pretend that your obstructionism wasn't a winning path to the white house, and are for some reason trying to advise the other team that your winning strategy isn't the way to win, and that their losing strategy is how you're going to win.

You don't really think people are so stupid as to fall for that do you?

If people had loved Obama so much then we would have seen his recommendation Clinton win against Trump.

(And next time capitalise White House!)

And if America were a true democracy, you would have, since the people chose her, not trump. The people didn’t want him. The people wanted a continuation of Obama policies.

If Trump is smart, he will run to Russia for asylum, before he gets himself locked up.

In midterms, a cautionary tale for Trump - Headline

A cautionary tale for everyone, I daresay.

President Trump was hampered by RINO's, particularly by the one who thumbed down U.S. healthcare reform along with the junior senator from the same state. RINO's of note are out and the Senate added to its GOP majority - clearly a victory for Trump.

The Democrats, on the other hand, won the House largely due to 46 GOP members who retired /resigned; and now they have a slim chance to legislate on a bi-partisan basis.

Should they engaged in the fringe far left's Quixotic priorities, i.e. impeachment, abolish ice, free college tuition, universal medicare, guess how many new house members who got voted in from Red States and who campaigned on a moderate stance to vote with Trump on border, security and economic issues, will be quickly out of a job in 2020.

The rest of the world sees the election for what it was: U.S. politics. Mid-terms turned in favor of the party out of power, as indicated by historical trends, though to a much lesser extent than Obama's or Clinton's fallout. 

The world will churn along without losing a beat - despite globalists' alarmist concerns.

Actually the rest of the world looked on with far more interest - midterms normally register anywhere else, but this time watched with great interest. This is because Trump has turned US politics into a circus and freak show. Or is it a carefully-scripted cringe comedy? Who knows, but it is addictive and repugnant at the same time.
