WASHINGTON (USA Today)—President Obama, who has made aggressive moves since Democratic losses on Election Day, faces more battles with newly empowered Republicans after he returns from his foreign trip Sunday.

In the wake of recent announcements about climate change and Internet policy — both of which drew criticism from the GOP — Obama faces contentious calls over immigration and Iran.

Obama and congressional Republicans will also fight over the Keystone XL oil pipeline and a new spending plan designed to take effect when the current one expires Dec. 11.

While Republicans won control of the Senate and expanded their House majority in the Nov. 4 elections, Obama vowed to avoid claims he has become a lame duck.

“The president has indicated that he’s going to use all of the authority that’s vested in the executive branch of the United States to take action that would benefit the American people, the American economy, particularly the American economy for middle-class families,” said White House spokesman Josh Earnest.
