President Donald Trump has said he likes "the idea" of testifying in the impeachment inquiry against him.

In a tweet 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 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, Pelosi said the president was welcome to "speak all the truth that he wants if he wants" before investigators.
