Russia says Trump faces ‘unpleasant challenges’ as the Democrats seized the House and the probe into 2016 election tampering is brought back to the forefront.

International reaction has been mixed as the bombastic President lost his House majority today.

The Democrats now have the power to strike at Trump’s global business empire and his international dealings.

They can explore everything from Chinese trademarks granted to companies linked to Trump and his daughter Ivanka, to a firm backing of Robert Muller’s probe into 2016 election tampering.

The Kremlin said the results were unlikely to hurt ties further as, ‘it’d be hard to make (the relationship) even worse.’

Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Wednesday, ‘there are no bright prospects on the horizon’ for improving the relations.

A meeting between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin planned for next week in France has been scrapped.

A senior Russian lawmaker, Konstantin Kosachev, says a Democratic majority in the House means Trump will face ‘unpleasant challenges.’

China says the relationship between the world’s two largest economies is so important that interests on both sides will continue pushing for cooperation regardless of the outcome of U.S. elections.

Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying declined to comment directly on the outcome but says ‘regardless of the result … we believe the two governments and the two peoples all want to maintain the sound and steady development of bilateral relations because we believe it is in the best interests of the international community.’
