Democrats take control of the House of Representatives in the midterm elections

What the split Congress means for Trump’s economy

As Democrats are projected to take control of the U.S. House of Representatives, some investors may find investing in the United States a less appealing proposition, according to one strategist.

The liberal party appeared to have won control of Congress’s lower chamber during Tuesday’s election, marking a triumph that gives the Democrats real levers of power to check President Donald Trump and GOP lawmakers. Experts told CNBC that markets will be looking to see how if at all the elections could affect America’s foreign policy — particularly regarding the trade war with China — but shifts to the nation’s domestic policy will also be of interest to investors around the world.
