But the measure failed to win enough support, with his fellow Democrats voting overwhelmingly against.

Mr Trump said the "ridiculous" attempts to impeach him were now "over".

"This should never be allowed to happen to another President of the United States again!" he tweeted.

Later, at a rally in North Carolina, Mr Trump continued his attacks on the four non-white Democrat congresswomen - Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib, known as "the squad".

He was cheered on by the crowd as he again accused the women of hating America. Many began chanting "Send her Back! Send her back!"- echoing the "Lock her Up" chant his supporters used against Hillary Clinton in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

Who are the congresswomen known as 'the squad'?
