Mr Trump goes to Washington, where complex Congress awaits

US President-elect Donald Trump walks onto a balcony at the US Capitol in Washington, DC, on November 10, 2016Donald Trump sought to turn over a new leaf with Republican leadership as he visited Congress Thursday after an acrimonious campaign, but the president-elect could find himself at odds with lawmakers from the start on key issues. Trump managed a stunning victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton in an election in which his hot rhetoric and pie-in-the-sky promises were the norm, but he will now need to operate within an institutional system where his legislative priorities need green lights from both chambers of Congress. Trump’s path may be easier than expected when he takes office in January because his Republicans were able to maintain their majorities in both the House and the Senate, giving the GOP full control of Congress and the White House for the first time since 2006.
