- The President of the United States of America, Donald Trump, has lashed out over impeachment proceedings
- Trump described the decision of the House of Representatives to formally proceed with the impeachment inquiry against him as a scam
- The ordeal has allegedly been orchestrated by the Democratic Party
Trump is being investigated by the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives for alleged abuse of powers of his office for orchestrating a pressure campaign on Ukraine to investigate the Bidens.
Joe Biden is a frontrunner in the race for the Democratic nomination ahead of next year's presidential election.
But the US president in a tweet on 31 October discredited the resolution by the House to set the rules for public hearings in the impeachment inquiry against him.
He said while the Democrats fail the American people, his administration will continue to deliver real results.
"While they do nothing democrats fail the American People, and continue the Impeachment Scam, my Administration will continue to deliver real results, as seen over the past month, below," he said.
New York Times reported that the House Democrats rallied behind a measure setting out rules for the public phase of their impeachment inquiry into President Trump endorsing the process.
It was gathered that a bitterly divided House of Representatives voted to endorse the Democratic-led impeachment inquiry into Trump.
