Last week, the US Senate found President Trump not guilty of both charges in the impeachment trial – abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

US President Donald Trump has sarcastically thanked Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi for the impeachment trial, which he always described as a «witch hunt», giving a boost to his approval rating.

 He also predicted that Pelosi would «lose the House again».

 Apart from this, ​Mr Trump shared his plans for Monday evening, saying that he was travelling to New Hampshire, where the Democratic primary will take place on Tuesday, to «shake up the Dems a little bit».

 On 5 February, ​Trump was acquitted by the Senate of charges that he had abused the powers of his office and obstructed Congress as it probed his alleged attempts to press Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former US Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter regarding their potentially illegal business activities in the country.
