Defiant House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that she's maintained marked unity among Democrats, fending off carping from rank-and-file members after yet more election defeats this week.

"I'd like to keep her right where she is, because our record is extraordinary against her", Trump said in a Fox News interview. "We just don't have either one of those in the present leadership".

President Donald Trump claimed hard-fought congressional victories Wednesday, intensifying an already hard day of questions for Capitol Hill Democrats.

Said Rep. Ed Perlmutter of Colorado: "Closing the gap is great, but it's not good enough, and we have to do better". We need a vision-where are we going?
