The US House of Representatives has voted to impeach President Trump over his role in the storming of Congress last week.

Mr Trump – who has rejected any responsibility for the violence – is the first president in US history to be impeached twice.

He told supporters at a rally in Washington DC to “fight like hell” against the result of November’s election. But in a new statement Mr Trump has called for no violence in the coming days.

A trial will begin in the Senate to determine the president’s guilt in the coming days.
