Trump called his rival in the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, late on Tuesday night and congratulated her on regaining a Democratic majority in the House, congressional staffers said.
Democrats turned out in droves to register disapproval of his divisive rhetoric and policies on such issues as immigration and his travel ban targeting several Muslim-majority countries.
Trump is trying to defy historic omens that suggest that commanders in chief often get a rebuke from voters in the midterm election of their first term. Two-thirds of voters said that they decided how to vote before the last month of the election.
But the rosiest expectations of some Democrats - that they could create a "blue wave" even when playing defence on the Senate map - proved unfounded.
The political and practical stakes were sky-high.
With a House majority, Democrats will have the power to investigate Trump's tax returns and possible conflicts of interest, and challenge his overtures to Saudi Arabia, Russia and North Korea.
The Republican caucuses in both chambers have become even more conservative with the loss of moderates within Trump's party, even as Democrats appear to be spoiling for a fight with Trump.
If Republicans maintain control, it will put the GOP in position to continue driving forward the President's agenda in at least one chamber of Congress.
Yet Trump's party will maintain Senate control for the next two years, at least.

Of the 26 percent of voters who said that a reason for their vote was to support Trump, the vast majority voted for a Republican candidate.
He bet big on a xenophobic closing message, warning of an immigrant "invasion" that promised to spread violent crime and drugs across the nation.

The result upends the balance of power in Washington, where Trump has enjoyed an easy ride from Republican dominance of both houses of Congress since his shock election in 2016.
Meanwhile, several 2020 presidential prospects easily won re-election, including Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Sherrod Brown of Ohio, Sen.
"We always knew these races are going to be close", said Rep. Katherine Clark of MA, co-chair of House Democrats' recruitment efforts. Among those expected: Vice President Mike Pence and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, an informal adviser to the president.
