The US House of Representatives has voted 232-197 to impeach President Donald Trump for inciting insurrection. Ten members of the Republican Party voted in favour of impeachment, and Trump will now face a trial in the Senate. However, Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says the trial is unlikely to proceed before the inauguration of Joe Biden on 20 January. Trump could be barred from running for president again if he is convicted in the Senate. Meanwhile, a new poll shows that Trump’s approval rating has fallen to 34 per cent, while a record 63 per cent of voters now disapprove of his performance.
