And, indeed, after Mr Trump fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Wednesday, putting the Mueller probe in jeopardy, Democratic Congressman Jerry Nadler warned that he meant to lead a House Judiciary Committee examination.
Trump cited health care and infrastructure as areas where the two parties could work together.
Previous presidents who have suffered mid-term setbacks have professed humility and said they learned valuable lessons.
President Trump says House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi "has earned the great honor" of being Speaker of the House. LePage governed largely by mobilizing the House minority Republican caucus to sustain a record number of 642 vetoes - more than all other ME governors combined going back to 1917 and 80 times as many as his predecessor, Baldacci. "I don't want to comment on that, otherwise I will run the risk of being accused of interfering in their midterm election", foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said. "Now we can all get back to work and get things done!"
Asked about potential investigations, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said in a CNN interview Wednesday that "the president is not nervous about anything".
"I think it is a reminder that it has to be done so that legally it meets the law", Neal said. "Yesterday was such a very Big Win, and all under the pressure of a Nasty and Hostile Media!" he tweeted ahead of a scheduled White House press conference at the time of writing. Both said they will seek the job of minority leader. You are a rude, bad person, you shouldn't be working for CNN. Almost two-thirds said Trump was a reason for their vote.
Tottenham vs PSV Eindhoven, Champions League
Both sides now sit on one point in the group while Barcelona sit top with nine and Inter in second with six. PSV defended doggedly for much of the match on a Wembley pitch damaged by recent American football matches.
Michigan Says Yes, ND Says No to Recreational Pot
State laws allowing recreational use of marijuana have spread across the United States since Colorado voters approved one in 2012. Recreational marijuana becomes legal ten days after state election results are certified, which should happen early next month.
Trump said he is "looking at different people for different positions", adding that "it is very common after the midterms".
Democratic candidates won 221 seats, three more than the 218 they need for a majority in the 435-member chamber, while Republicans took 198 seats in Tuesday's midterm elections. Republicans gained a majority in the Senate two years later and held onto it by one seat in 2016.
Republican Ron DeSantis ousted Democratic opponent Andrew Gillum by less than one percentage point in a hotly contested race in Florida; Mike DeWine won the governorship in OH; and Republican Brian Kemp was ahead of Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams by 1.6 points with 100 percent of precincts reporting.
Beyond trying to get their hands on the Holy Grail of President Donald Trump's business dealings - his tax returns - House Democrats are prepared to use their newfound majority and subpoena power to go after all manner of financial records that could back up their claims that he's using his presidency to enrich himself and his family.
Control of the House gives Democrats the ability to launch investigations into the president and stifle his agenda. At the same time, there could be regular reports about what the committee staff has found in subpoenaed records - perhaps Trump's tax returns, his company's internal financial documents, the records of his various oligarch partners in the former Soviet Union, and e-mails and other digital messages between Trump's team and people in Russian Federation. The 30-second spot featured courtroom video of an illegal immigrant from Mexico convicted in the 2014 killings of two police officers, juxtaposed with scenes of migrants headed through Mexico.
But control of the Senate ensures Mr Trump can still make key appointments.
The Democratic sweep should end an era of highly charged partisan discord that was dominated by outgoing Republican Gov. Paul LePage and his prolific use of the veto.
The mixed verdict in the first nationwide election of Trump's presidency showed the limits of his hard-line immigration rhetoric in America's evolving political landscape. For her part, Pelosi has said that without bipartisan support, Democrats are unlikely to pursue impeachment charges against the president, although that too could change.
