United States House of Representatives
President Trump is impeached for the second time in his one-term presidency. The House of Representatives voted 232-197 in favour of a single article of impeachment, which charges Trump with “incitement of insurrection” for his role in fomenting the riot at the US Capitol on January 6. Now the case moves to the Senate to decide if Trump will be impeached in the last days of his presidency.

US President Donald Trump has doubled-down on a tweet in which he singled out four Democratic Congresswomen, telling them to "go back" and "fix" the countries "from which they came". The House of Representatives formally condemned the statements, calling them racist. Trump tweeted that it was actually a win for him and his government, saying it was “so great to see how unified the Republican Party was”. The original tweet caused a furore on Capital Hill and abroad, with some politicians strongly condemning the President’s words as racist, while others were more cautious to directly label the US leader.
Mexican newspaper La Jornada has published a photo of a man and his small daughter who drowned trying to cross the Rio Grande river from Mexico into the US. The migrant crisis at the border has become increasingly dire as the Trump administrations zero-tolerance policy on illegal immigration has led to families being seperated at the border. The US House of Representatives on Tuesday passed a $4.5 (£3.3) billion emergency border aid package to care for thousands of migrant families and unaccompanied children detained after crossing the US-Mexico border.

Yes, *the* Nancy Pelosi.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has joined the US House of Representatives as the youngest ever congresswoman. Despite the 29-year-old's achievement, there is always someone who wants to spoil the party. In comes a troll with a video of AOC dancing back when she was in college... and most people agree it's nothing short of adorable.
