Democrats won control of the House of Representatives on Tuesday, Nov. 6. 

This means Democrats have the ability to check President Trump’s power and Republicans will no longer be able to pass legislation with GOP votes alone.  When Bills go through Congress, Democrats will have a say.  They will also have a subpoena power, which will aid in a close investigation on Trump Administration.


As for Senate, Democrats did not gain. This means they will not be able to block Trump’s Supreme Court, Cabinet, and other nominees for the next two years. President Trump will continue to have control in confirming judges to lifetime posts.
