US Senate Acquits Trump on Both Articles of Impeachment, Setting a new Record in American Political History

President Trump will be making a public statement Thursday at 12:00pm from the White House to discuss hiss VICTORY on the Impeachment Hoax!

@realDonaldTrump: I will be making a public statement tomorrow at 12:00pm from the
@WhiteHouse to discuss our Country’s VICTORY on the Impeachment Hoax!
On his Twitter handle, he has described his acquittal by the Senate as a resounding victory but that the impeachment hoax was just a continuation of the radical left, Do Nothing Democrats corrupt practices.

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump was cleared in his impeachment trial, ending a congressional bid to oust him from office that bitterly divided the US. The U.S. Senate, run by the president's fellow Republicans, voted to acquit him 52-48 on charges of abuse of power and 53-47 on obstruction of Congress.

Democrats charged Mr Trump in December with pressuring Ukraine to smear a potential White House rival.

The vote means Mr Trump will remain in office.

In November, he will become the first impeached president to seek re-election. In its historic vote on Wednesday, the Senate decided not to remove America's 45th president from office on charges arising from his dealings with Ukraine.

If convicted on either charge, Mr Trump would have had to turn over his office to Vice-President Mike Pence.

The Democratic-led House of Representatives approved the articles of impeachment on 18 December.

How did President Trump react?

Mr Trump, who is seeking a second four-year term in the 3 November election, always denied wrongdoing.

His re-election campaign said in a statement: "President Trump has been totally vindicated and it's now time to get back to the business of the American people.

"The do-nothing Democrats know they can't beat him, so they had to impeach him." It said "this terrible ordeal" and "nonsense" was merely a Democratic campaign tactic.

The statement added: "This impeachment hoax will go down as the worst miscalculation in American political history."

Mr Trump - whose personal approval rating with American voters hit a personal best of 49% this week, according to Gallup - tweeted that he would speak on Thursday about the case.
