Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., also issued a warning for Democrats on Wednesday morning. The president "may not like it, but he and his administration will be held accountable to our laws and to the American people". "I'm not sure whether I should be happy or sad", Mr. Trump said.

Views on sexual harassment diverged similarly: About 8 in 10 said they see it as a "serious problem", and almost two-thirds of them voted Democratic.

Early on Wednesday, Mr Trump added: "Now we can all get back to work and get things done!"

Trump faces the prospect, starting next year, of endless investigations after Democrats formally take control of the House, along with stymied policy efforts and fresh questions about the resilience of his unorthodox political coalition.

Democrats' dreams of the Senate majority, always unlikely, were shattered after losses in top Senate battlegrounds: Indiana, Missouri, Tennessee, North Dakota and Texas. Now we want to say goodbye'?

The president himself focused on positives as Republicans lost control of the House but made Senate gains.

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee will begin to examine the monies that the president and his family have earned as a result of foreign diplomats staying at hotels the Trump Organization manages - it doesn't outright own them - in Washington and NY.

President Donald Trump initially tried to act gracious, calling Democratic House Leader Nancy Pelosi to laud her victory.

Rep. Elijah Cummings, the Maryland Democrat who is poised to take charge of the House Oversight Committee, said in a statement to The Associated Press that he intends to use the panel as "a check on the executive branch - not merely for potential criminal violations, but for much broader concerns, such as conflicts of interest, emoluments violations and waste, fraud and abuse". Next year they will have far more power in USA politics, and the Republicans far less. "She has earned this great honor!"

I'm very happy but this was all about the players - we have some brilliant players here who have no limits. In football the most important is always the next game.

Trump spent election night watching returns with family and friends at the White House, his shadow looming large over the results.

Almost 40% of voters cast their ballots to express opposition to the president, according to VoteCast, while one-in-four said they voted to express support for Trump.

The Democrats should be careful not to fall in Donald Trump's "trap", warns a political expert.

Aides set up televisions in the White House residence for Trump, first lady Melania Trump and their guests to watch election results come in, with the sets tuned to different cable news channels. Progressives will nearly certainly clamour for Trump's impeachment - a push that Democratic leaders have indicated that they will resist, at least until Mueller releases his findings. Even then, Bush gained just eight House seats and two in the Senate. It's all the Trump magic - Trump is the magic man. Voters scored Trump positively on the economy and for standing up "for what he believes in".
