Trump is not impeached
President Donald Trump has been cleared in his impeachment trial, ending a congressional bid to remove him from office that bitterly divided the US.
The 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 Trump in December with pressuring Ukraine to smear a potential White House rival.
He will become the first impeached president to seek re-election.
In its historic vote, 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, Trump would have had to turn over his office to Vice-President Mike Pence.
