Midterms: victory or defeat for Trump?

Both, sir, one could say… The Democrats have regained control of the House of Representatives (223 seats against 197) but the Republicans retain the Senate (51 seats against 44). 

In any case, it is a women’s victory since a record number of women will enter the Congress!

The House will be able, it is a fact, to work as a counter-power to the White House, but Trump’s mandate is not disavowed, far from it! 

The American President was quick to celebrate his victory: “It was a great day, an incredible day”…

The divide that separates the two Americas therefore appears more gaping than ever and very clever who can now predict the outcome of the upcoming presidential elections in 2020…
