Mid-term elections: House is in control of Democrats now

In short:
On Tuesday, Democrats won control of the House of Representatives. The bad news for Trump in it is that by winning the house of representative, Democrats also have won the ability to put checks on Donald Trump’s power in Congress.

Republicans, on the other hand, performed good in the house of Senate and gained the majority there.

With the winning of Democrats in the House of Representatives, Republicans will no longer have the power to pass legislation with GOP votes alone. Now, to get any bills through Congress, Trump and his allies will have to fight with Democrats. And now that Democrats are in power, it is easier for Congress to start an investigation on Trump administration.
