    The 2018 US midterm elections left Congress divided after the Democratic Party took control of the 435-member House of Representatives with Republicans, though, keeping their majority in the 100-member Senate.

    The 116th US Congress is currently swearing in with a newly elected Democratic majority in the House of Representatives. The ceremony comes amid a partial Federal government shutdown that has been in effect since December 22 after Democratic lawmakers refused to meet President Donald Trump's demand for $5 billion to build the controversial wall on the US-Mexico border.
