Earlier, on November 6, midterm elections to the Congress were held in the U.S. The Democratic Party received the majority of seats in the House of Representatives. Yet, the Republicans have consolidated the majority in the Senate, which President Trump called a 'tremendous success'.

The House of Representatives is responsible for the adoption of new laws, which influence the U.S. external policy, in particular. The Senate deals with the staff appointments and controls the White House.
