United States is divided after the intermediate elections

The coastal area of Miami also left interesting readings for the future, by leaning a little more by the democratic current that is somewhat logical in the area, being one of the most varied in terms of nationalities, predominating the Latino community, which always It has been supported by the blue bench but had expressed support for the Republican nucleus.

The division of the American opinion became evident this Tuesday with the intermediate elections held in the country, leaving as a result a Senate in favor of the Republican Party and President Donald Trump, while the House passed to the Democrats after 8 years.

Since 2010 there was no blue majority in the House of Representatives and this time, to get the 23 most needed positions, the Democrats retake the majority in a body that also breaks some records as the presence of women in the positions mentioned, highlighting Ilhan Omar, one of the two Muslim women who will be in the entity from January.

In the Senate, things seem to have come out as proposed by President Donald Trump, who in his closing campaign in Missouri said was his main objective and therefore, focused his campaign on it, getting the majority in it and at the same time, they maintained states like Indiana, Missouri, South Dakota, Tennessee and Texas, which were not entirely clear. For the North American leader, the day was successful.
 

Although each side achieved the positions that were initially established in the polls, the truth is that none left a clear superiority over the other, with final results that marked an almost complete match between Republicans and Democrats.

With these results, the elections of 2020 are matched from this very moment and at the same time, the power of Trump is consolidated in the most autochthonous or patriotic sectors of the United States, where the mixture of nationalities has been given in smaller quantity as the zones rural.

The coastal area of Miami also left interesting readings for the future, by leaning a little more by the democratic current that is somewhat logical in the area, being one of the most varied in terms of nationalities, predominating the Latino community, which always It has been supported by the blue bench but had expressed support for the Republican nucleus.

While there were no surprises in terms of a general reading, beyond the ideological division and the confrontation in debates that are expected for these two years in the different institutions of the country, the majority in the lower house represents a stop on two proposals known and controversial by Donald Trump: the dividing wall and health reform. With a Democratic majority in the House of Representatives, it seems a bit difficult for these plans to be carried out in the remainder of the mandate for the president.

But these elections not only left a political reading for the United States, since the economic sector also has repercussion like the one that recorded Wall Street the morning of this Wednesday, with a rebound of 0.61% in the Down Jones, the main reference to measure the balance of each company in the stock market and that after the results of the elections, left United-Health (3.87%), Microsoft (2.48%) Pzifer (2.30%) and Visa (1.91%) as the biggest beneficiaries in the face of investment.

After the results, Donald Trump used his Twitter account to leave some congratulatory messages to those who participated alongside him in the election campaign, as well as stir up those who decided not to do so.

 

He also took the opportunity to send a message to the Democratic Party regarding his future actions, highlighting the use of taxpayers' money and their function, as well as the possible response that Republicans would give from the Senate. He added some words for his detractors and some media that are against him.

It is expected that at noon on this Wednesday, the president will make a press conference to address the country.
