In midterm elections two years after he won the White House, Trump and his fellow Republicans were set to maintain their majority in the US Senate, CNN, NBC and ABC News said, following a divisive campaign marked by fierce clashes over race, immigration and other cultural issues.
Democrats needed to pick up two dozen seats to seize the House majority and two seats to control the Senate.
But Democrats are hoping to take control of at least the House of Representatives, giving them the opportunity to derail Trump's legislative agenda, and give them power to expand investigations into his personal and professional conduct.
Almost 40 percent of voters cast their ballots to express opposition to the president, according to AP VoteCast, a national survey of the electorate, while one-in-four said they voted to express support for Trump.

"The vast majority of women voters are angry, frustrated and they are really done with seeing where the Republican Party is taking them, particularly as it related to heath care and civility", said Stephanie Schriock, who leads EMILY's List, a group that help elect Democratic women.

When the woman declined, she told police, Beierle "slapped her butt, and grabbed it and then shook it". "This monster ruined it". Scott Paul Beierle shot six people, killing two, and pistol-whipped another person before turning the gun on himself.
Trump also could face more pushback from Democrats on trade tariffs he has introduced, particularly in farm states hard hit by retaliatory measures from China or manufacturing states hit by higher steel and aluminum prices.
