Donald Trump becomes the third US president in history to be impeached.


The United States House of Representatives voted largely along party lines to impeach President Donald Trump for obstruction of Congress and abuse of power related to his dealings with Ukraine.


Trump is only the third president in US history to be impeached by the full House. Wednesday's votes set up a likely January trial in the Republican-controlled Senate.


Trump, who has denied any wrongdoing, took the stage at a Michigan rally as the House began voting on impeachment. "Tonight the House Democrats are trying to nullify the ballots of tens of millions of patriotic Americans," Trump told the crowd.


The vote on abuse of power was 216-197. Two Democrats voted against the first article, and one voted present.


The vote on obstruction of Congress was 229-198, with three Democrats voting against the second article and one voting present.


At the centre of the Democrats impeachment of Trump was a July 25 telephone call the president had with newly elected Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.


Trump urged Zelenskyy in the call to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, and his son, Hunter, who was had served on the board of a Ukrainian gas company.


Joe Biden is a leading contender in the race for the Democratic nomination for president in 2020. There has been no evidence of any wrongdoing by the Bidens.


Democrats allege Trump abused the power of the US presidency by organising a scheme to extort a promise from Zelenskyy. At the time of the call, Trump was withholding $391m in military aid to help Ukraine defend against Russia.
