Trump remains defiant in face of impeachment during Minneapolis rally

US President Donald Trump was defiant in the face of an impeachment probe on Thursday as he sought to convert the threat to his presidency into a weapon on the campaign trail, with biting and unsupported attacks on potential Democratic challenger Joe Biden. Confronting an investigation provoked by his unprecedented calls for Ukraine and then China to assist in digging up dirt on his political rivals, Mr Trump continued to lay into Biden and his son Hunter, whom he and his allies have accused, without evidence, of illegally profiting off his father’s office. “The Bidens got rich, and that is substantiated, while America got robbed,” Mr Trump said.
