Trump will 'strongly consider' testifying

President Donald Trump has said he likes "the idea" of testifying in the impeachment inquiry against him. In a tweet on Monday Mr Trump said he would "strongly consider" the move after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested it over the weekend.

The Democrat-led inquiry is establishing whether Mr Trump withheld aid to Ukraine in return for an inquiry into ex-Vice President Joe Biden. The Republican president has dismissed it as a "witch hunt". On Sunday, Ms Pelosi said the president was welcome to "speak all the truth that he wants if he wants" before investigators.

In his tweets, Mr. Trump attacked Ms Pelosi as "Our Crazy, Do Nothing" speaker, but said he would consider testifying "in order to get Congress focused again".

The president has recently faced renewed criticism for his use of Twitter. Chuck Schumer, the Democratic leader in the Senate, told reporters that if Mr Trump "doesn't like what he's hearing, he shouldn't tweet", but instead "testify under oath".
