Trump becomes the first US president.

The House has voted to impeach Donald Trump on the charge of incitement of insurrection, after the president incited a violent mob to storm the Capitol last week, resulting in five deaths.

The final vote was 232-197, with 10 House Republicans supporting the measure.

Trump has become the first president in US history to ever be impeached by the House twice.

The matter will now go before the Senate, which will decide whether Trump should be convicted and removed from office.

The trial will likely conclude after Joe Biden takes office anyway, but a conviction would prevent Trump from running for president again.
