DonaldTrump has become the third US president in history, after Andrew Johnson in1868 and Bill Clinton in 1998, to be impeached by the House of Representatives.Now a trial in the Senate will decide whether he remains in office.
TheHouse voted on two charges – the president abused his power and that he hadobstructed Congress. Both votes fell along party lines with nearly allDemocrats voting for the charges and all Republicans against.
Meanwhile, addressing a campaign rally, Trump said, "While we're creating jobs and fighting for Michigan, the radical left in Congress is consumed with envy and hatred and rage, you see what's going on."
TheWhite House released a statement saying that the president was "confident thathe will be fully exonerated" in a Senate trial.
