President Donald Trump is a tough-talking New Yorker. Come next year, U.S. House Democrats plan to turn to fellow New Yorkers to fight his agenda


Several House Democrats from New York are slated to hold critical posts in the new Congress, and they are vowing to lead the opposition during the second half of Trump's term.

"If anyone knows how to stop Donald Trump, it's the New Yorkers in the congressional delegation who’ve been dealing with him in one way or the another for the last 30-plus years," said Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, D-Brooklyn, who is running to be House Democratic Caucus Chair.
