President Donald Trump fights back amid US impeachment inquiry

President Trump calls the proceedings against him a 'hoax' as Democrats race to quicken pace of inquiry.

    US President Donald Trump says he deserves to meet his accuser as the push for impeachment proceedings against him gathers pace.

    It is over a call during which Trump asked the Ukrainian leader to investigate his political rival Joe Biden.

    Democrats are saying he abused his office in doing so and that it threatens national security.

    Al Jazeera's Andy Gallacher reports on the push for impeachment and the various political reactions at the Sunday talk shows in the United States.
