美国中期选举 特朗普_英语新闻

US President Donald Trump has hailed "tremendous success" in the mid-term elections after a night of mixed results for his Republican party.

昨晚,美国总统唐纳德·特朗普所在的共和党在中期选举中获得了有好有坏的成绩,但他却大声宣称自己获得“巨大的成功”。

The Democrats won the House of Representatives, which will enable them to thwart the president’s agenda.

民主党赢得了众议院的掌控权,这使他们能够阻挠这位美国总统的议程。

But the Republicans consolidated their grip on the Senate, ensuring he can still make key appointments.

但共和党人巩固了他们对参议院的控制权,这确保了他仍然可以进行重要任命。

Mr Trump said the outcome "defied history" as the ruling party does not usually gain seats in the mid-terms.

特朗普表示,由于执政党通常不会在中期选举中获得席位,因此该结果“逆袭了历史”。

At a feisty news conference on Wednesday, Mr Trump offered an olive branch to Democrats, proposing both parties work together on joint legislative priorities.

在周三举行的一个反响热烈的新闻发布会上,特朗普向民主党伸出橄榄枝,建议双方就共同的立法优先事项共同努力。

But he said that if Democratic-controlled congressional committees started serving legal writs against his administration, Republicans would do likewise and gridlock would ensue.

但他表示,如果民主党控制的国会委员会开始对其政府提起法律诉讼,共和党人也会这样做,而随之而来的将会是两党陷入僵局。

In ill-tempered exchanges, Mr Trump called a CNN correspondent "a rude, terrible person" and told an NBC reporter: "I’m not a big fan of yours either."

一次双方充满火药味的对话中,特朗普称一名CNN记者为“粗鲁,可怕的人”,并告诉NBC记者:“我也不怎么喜欢你。”

He told a black reporter who asked whether his self-professed nationalism would embolden white nationalists that it was "such a racist question".

当一位黑人记者问他,他公开的民族主义信念是否会让白人民族主义者更加狂妄,他回答说这是“多么种族歧视的问题”。

The president also mocked Republicans who did not "embrace" him on the campaign trail, and went on to lose their election races.

总统还嘲笑那些没有在竞选过程中“拥抱”他的共和党人输掉了竞选。

"They did very poorly," Mr Trump told reporters. "I’m not sure that I should be happy or sad but I feel just fine about it."

“他们的表现非常差,”特朗普先生告诉记者。 “我不知道自己是高兴还是悲伤,还好吧。”
