Democrats charged Mr Trump in December with pressuring Ukraine to smear a potential White House rival: In November, Mr Trump will be the first impeached president to go for election.
In its historic vote on Wednesday, the Senate decided not to remove Mr Trump from office on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, arising from his dealings with Ukraine: The Democratic-led House of Representatives approved the charges on 18 December.
Mitt Romney of Utah was the only Republican senator to vote to convict Mr Trump, on the first charge of abuse of power: Mr Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, said earlier on the Senate floor that the president was “guilty of an appalling abuse of public trust”.
The Trump 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.”
