·1-min read

House Democrats have wrapped up their first full day of arguments at the historic second impeachment trial of former US president Donald Trump.

Democrats finished their presentation on Wednesday night after seven hours.

They presented security footage, social media videos, police radio calls and Trump's own Twitter posts to argue that he stoked the flames of violence, incited the January 6 insurrection at the Capitol and failed to act quickly to send help or call his supporters off.

Five people died, including a police officer.

The impeachment trial is set to resume at noon on Thursday.

Trump's defence lawyers will present their arguments on Friday and Saturday.
