Eight of the 11 freshman Democrats who voted against Pelosi are male and all of them are white. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was slated to give the congressional leaders a border security briefing, but was interrupted by Democrats and was unable to deliver the briefing.

Incoming chairpersons have signalled that Trump will face a barrage of probes that could bog down a White House already besieged by Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe, draining energy from the administration's agenda and foiling Trump's message.
