Checking Trump: What do the midterms mean for the world?

On this episode of The Take podcast, Al Jazeera journalists discuss what the elections mean for Trump's foreign policy.

    Americans cast their votes in the country's midterm elections on November 6. 

    As predicted, President Donald Trump's Republican party held on to the Senate, but the Democrats won control of the House of Representatives.

    What does a split legislature mean for the administration's foreign policy agenda? And what should the rest of the world take away from the election?

    In a new episode of The Take, host Imtiaz Tyab puts those questions to Al Jazeera's Kimberly Halkett, Rosiland Jordan, and Patty Culhane, all veteran Washington, DC correspondents. Reporters from Tehran and Beijing weigh in too.
