'US far-right is furious over Trump impeachment'

Dr Jen Schradie, a digital sociologist, who has been studying far-right groups in the US says many see President Donald Trump as a symbol of their movement.

She told BBC World News: "The far-right in the US is furious over the impeachment. For them Donald Trump is their leader but in many ways he is a symbol of their movement.

"So while they are upset, it's also a very motivating decision for people to continue to organise, because this is really a long term movement that has been years in the making."

President Trump has rejected any responsibility for the violence last week that prompted his impeachment.
