cameron's president told the begins his seventh term in office with a pledge to confront the country's english speaking separatists even as the hunt continues for dozens of kidnapped school children. i'm sorry so much kind of good to have you with us in under two hours the first polls will begin closing and what have been called the most crucial u.s. midterm elections in decades donald trump is not on the ballot but the vote is being seen as a referendum on the u.s. president's agenda survey suggests the republicans will keep control of the senate and that the democrats could take back the house of representatives and that would put them in the position to push back against the president's policies but the battle promises to be tight. it's the american public's first chance to vote since donald trump's election back in twenty sixteen the midterms
10:02 pm
a widely seen as a referendum on the president after a divisive first two years in office for almost two years but you regret that you wish on you that you could just take back a redo well there would be certain things i'm not sure i want to reveal all of a but i would say tone i would like to have a much softer tone i feel to a certain extent i have no choice but maybe i do and maybe i could have been softer from that standpoint but he hasn't turned down his rhetoric in the midterms campaign accusing democrats of being weak on migration. democrat charles rising chair there the after care of it over illegal aliens to pour into our country overwhelming the schools you are spittles and your communities. people democrats are hoping to achieve a blue wave after crushing results and twenty sixteen. i feel
10:03 pm
confident that we will win it's just a question of what the size of the tree is no people asked me how is it a wave or tsunami i said all of those are drops of water these races are very close across the country so in this election even usually safe seats are up for grabs in deeply conservative texas opinion polls indicate democrats better o'rorke who seeking election to the senate could do surprisingly well. just a few weeks ago democrats were hopeful they could win back both the senate and the house but polls suggest the race is wide open. for more on the midterm elections we're joined by tracey when bush is president of the ohio black republicans association in youngstown tracy thank you so much for joining us on our program what is it your take on this midterm election where you're expecting here. i believe that we're going to have a red way i think that we it's going to be type it's going to be close but the
10:04 pm
midterms usually swing to the opposing party but i think president trumps and this economy and what's going on here it's going to take us further and we may keep the house why do you say so because some of the polls show that we're expecting more of a blue way but the democrats would take the house back what indication do you see that that's not the case that people that are coming out here in the mahoning valley which is a democrat stronghold is really really high and they're coming up the president front and to support the republican ticket which is unusual but that is a bellwether sign saying that the republicans still have momentum tracy do want to ask you before the two thousand and sixteen presidential election you had been on record as saying that donald trump had denigrated the republican party and also that he offends me as an african american and then you join the trump campaign team
10:05 pm
what changed your mind about the president adams following the media i was following what i heard and i was not researching the everything that i heard as i should that when i began to research what was going on when i began to look at president trump and his stance and when i sat on the convention floor and i listened to his speech and i said oh my god he must break the system what do you say heard that anything from the local level it's not too much well what is it that he said that convinced you tracy. he said that he wanted to give america back to the people and not to the politicians and that's a very very dangerous place because the politicians like being in control when the people are sleep but if you give the country back to americans then the americans have the ability to spot which means giving it back to the middle class giving it back to the everyday person who can participate inside of our republic do you think that donald trump has done that given america back to the people i think he is
10:06 pm
giving it that it's a process there's a long way to go but i think he's taken great strides you see money moving you see entrepreneurial spirit going on the tax cut when you look at the opportunity zones which are a part of the tax cut which comes and actually identified with underdeveloped places inside the country that's a positive thing when you see people going to work in america we see traffic that's a good thing and we need that because people here need to go to work so trace you're looking at donald trump's economic record the economy is doing well but what do you think of his midterm strategy to focus on emigration as a centerpiece of his campaigning what is that the right strategy. i think it was a part of the right strategy i would say focus on the the finances and the income but the immigration is that is that is a problem and we need to understand it's a weight on our system and we want people to come to america but they need to come
10:07 pm
in the right way but bringing seven thousand people just up in a caravan doesn't make sense we've got to cut that out and congress needs to go to work and do it job congress has been going to work and all they've been doing is fighting with each other they need to go ahead and sit down with each other and actually quit playing politics and do what's right for the american public tracy when you talk to voters what really is driving them to the polls is it actually immigration or is it other issues like health care like education i think it's emotion. leave the emotional wise this election system to the point where you don't want people who are going based on emotion based on what's on the dollar and that's not healthy but that's what i think is right tracey winbush president of the ohio black republicans association in youngstown thank you so much for sharing your views with us here. thank you. let's take a look now at some other stories making headlines around the world
