Trump gave no speech, but moved from room to room to greet friends and watch results.

Following the results, Trump called Nancy Pelosi, the likely next speaker of the House, to congratulate her as Democrats won House seats across the country.

Democrats took control of the House of Representatives for the first time since 2011 following Tuesday's election. Republicans maintained and grew their control of the Senate.

According to Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill, Trump "acknowledged the leader’s call for bipartisanship in her victory remarks."

Trump also called Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and several successful GOP candidates, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told Bloomberg.

The president celebrated a number of GOP wins on Twitter Wednesday morning.
