The United States Senate has acquitted President Donald Trump of all charges in his impeachment trial about putting pressure on Ukraine in exchange for military aid.

Only one Republican Senator, Mitt Romney voted alongside Democrats to convict Trump for abuse of power.

The White House said it was a full vindication and exoneration but the Democrats warn more investigations on Trump are ahead.

Al Jazeera's Heidi Zhou-Castro reports from Washington.
'Victory on the impeachment hoax' - the reaction of Donald Trump at the end of his trial in the US Senate.
The president was charged with abusing his power by pressuring Ukraine to investigate rival Joe Biden, then obstructing a Congressional investigation into what happened.
Neither articles of impeachment received enough votes to remove Trump from office.
Stock markets in Asia and Europe rose after Trump's acquittal.
And his approval rating is at a record high of 49 percent.
So what does a strengthened Trump mean for America and the rest of the world?
