US President Donald Trump has been acquitted following his impeachment trial in the US Senate.

Senators voted 48 'guilty' to 52 'not guilty' on the abuse of power charge.

Shortly after, they voted 47-53 on the charge of obstruction.

His impeachment would have required a two-thirds majority in the chamber.

He was accused of asking the leader of Ukraine to investigate his Democratic rival Joe Biden, something he always denied.

Chuck Schumer, the top Senate Democrat, said: "No doubt, the president will boast he received total exoneration. But we know better. We know this wasn't a trial by any stretch of the definition."

The result means the 73-year-old can remain in office.
