World News : Trump impeachment -- US president to face trial in Senate

Donald Trump has become the third president of the United States in history to be impeached by the House of Representatives, setting up a Senate trial to determine whether he will remain in office.

The House voted on two grounds-that the president was abussing his influence and delaying Congress.

All votes split along party lines with almost all Democrats voting in favor of the allegations and against all Republicans.

President Trump was holding a campaign rally as voting took place.

He told a cheering crowd in Battle Creek, Michigan: "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."

The White House released a statement saying that the president was "confident that he will be fully exonerated" in a Senate trial.

Wednesday's hearings started with members of the Republican Party of Mr Trump pressing for procedural votes in an attempt to frustrate the process.

This was followed by a vote on the rules to be laid down for the impeachment, which set off 10 hours of political debate on the merits of the two allegations against President Trump for impeachment.
