Mr. Trump said he nearly prefers it this way, with Democrats in control rather than a slim GOP lead.

In regard to the case of murdered Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Trump said: "I'll have a much stronger opinion on that subject over the next week". "If we won by one or two or three or four or five, that wouldn't happen, and the closer it is, the worse it is", he said.
