seventy eight school students kidnapped in cameroon are freed but mystery surrounds who took them and we report from the world's most environmentally friendly country efforts to keep it that way. u.s. president donald trump has hailed the performance of the republicans in the midterm elections in a long and fractious press conference in which he starred with several reporters despite losing control of the house of representatives from said the outcome represented a history that find success against the olds but he believes that he can work with the democrats to get things done there was a big day yesterday incredible day and last night the republican party defied history to expand our senate majority. well significantly beating
expectations in the house for the mid. and midterm year we did this in spite of a very dramatic fundraising disadvantage driven by democrats wealthy donors and special interests and very hostile media coverage to put it mildly the media coverage set a new record in a new standard. well time became particularly angry when challenged by a c.n.n. correspondent. mr president. what c.n.n. should be ashamed of itself having you working for them you are a rude terrible person you shouldn't be working for c.n.n. . i think that's out there are very rude person the way you treat sarah huckabee is horrible and the way you treat other people horrible you shouldn't treat people that way in going to peter going in gyms defense i traveled with him and watched him he's a diligent reporter i'm not
a big fan of yours either so i understand to be honest i'm. well trump also appeared to confirm that mike pence would again be his running mate in twenty twenty do you want to lock down your ticket right now sir will the vice president be your running mate in twenty twenty well i haven't asked him but i hope so were you mike will you be my running mate. stand up my please raise your right hand now i'm ok. with you thank you ok yes yes yes ok yes. that was unexpected but i feel very. well our white house correspondent kimberly halkett was in that news conference think it really you've sat through a fair few of these conferences i think that was actually the longest one ever obviously one of the most fractious so it seems the president really is rattled by these midterm results. yeah it was it was an odd type of press conference it really is only the second time he's done one like that in the east
room of the white house presidential historian who was in amongst us said it is the longest she has ever seen a in that format but it certainly was fractious as you point out it was unusual because the president came out sensually almost extending it to all of branch to the democrats have now taken control of the house of representatives but it quickly deteriorated and became extremely combative right out of the gate as you saw there the president very very strongly kind of reinforcing an ongoing war with the media and particularly with the c.n.n. network he called the the network hostile jim acosta the reporter here at the white house hostile said you are very rude and terrible person but it even went beyond that there was at one point kind of a tug of war between the white house aide who tried to grab the microphone out of the jim acosta's hand as he was trying to ask
a follow up question it was certainly unusual it was certainly exceptional except when it comes to this president who has made no mistake in terms of how he feels about the media that he feels that it is continuing in his view to divide the country when he feels that he has nothing to be ashamed of with regard to the investigations that the democrats are promising to move forward with in the house of representatives but you're right given the results of that midterm election it did appear well he said on the surface he had no problem moving forward and wanted to work with democrats his body language in the sparring seemed to suggest just the opposite just to elaborate on that point for there i mean obviously the style of the conference or lack thereof was remarkable the substance i mean what would you say were the actual pick away points from it. well the first key point that i think we need to take from this is one that we got an inkling in when the president woke
up early this morning tweeting about that and it was what he made the point he made right off the top is that he was both extending it all of branch to democrats saying i want to work with you on things like infrastructure the environment lowering drug costs but he also then in turn threatened democrats saying if you go after me and you don't work with me but instead choose to go after my tax returns conduct investigations what i control and my party controls the senate and he almost suggested he was going to weaponize the set it now that there has been expanded control to go after his political opponents so it certainly was remarkable this sort of speaking out of both sides of his mouth both of extending an olive branch but also threatening at the same time can really help get there at the white house thank you kimberly. let's take a look now at the results in detail or at least so far the democrats have won back
control of the house of representatives with two hundred twenty one seats to the republicans one hundred ninety eight now this enables the democrats to block legislation and launch investigations into trouble such as into his tax returns and even starting pietschmann proceedings against them but as expected the republicans did retain the senate which is responsible for confirming judges cabinet members and the basters they now have fifty one of the seats while the democrats have forty five to thirty five of the hundred seats in the senate were actually up for grabs most of them in republican strongholds a few haven't been declared yet but it's unlikely to change the balance now republicans have had strong results as well when it comes to the governor's races so far picking up sixteen of the thirty six contests the better kratz won thirteen well the u.s. house democratic leader nancy pelosi says them across must stand their ground but also seek compromise with president trump. american people have put want to put an
end to unchecked g.o.p. control of washington restoring again the checks and balances envisioned by our founders that's a responsibility we have to take that oath to protect and defend the constitution and we as democrats are here to strengthen the institution in which we serve and not to have it be a rubber stamp for president trump. well american voters have chosen a much more diverse group of leaders to represent them including war women twenty nine year old alexandria cortez has become the youngest woman ever elected to the house of representatives after winning her race for the house in new york michigan's rashida and minnesota's both democrats have become the first muslim american women ever voted into congress and the first native american women have
won their respective seats for the house that brought holland and sure restatements were elected to office in new mexico and kansas but in georgia stacey abberations looks like she's been defeated by her republican rival brian kemp victory would have made the united states first ever black a woman governor and she has yet to concede that election. i'm here tonight to tell you votes remain to be counted there are voices that were waiting to be heard across our state folks are opening up the dreams of voters in absentee ballots and we believe our chance for a stronger georgia is just within reach. but we cannot seize it until all voices are heard and i promise you tonight we're going to make sure that every vote is counted. but a key part of president term strategy during campaigning was to put immigration at the forefront of voters' minds he repeatedly can then the caravans of migrants
