WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday that Republicans need to get tougher and fight the impeachment inquiry under way in Congress.

The Democratic-led House of Representatives began the proceedings last month after Trump sought help from Ukraine against a Democratic political rival, former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, and his son Hunter Biden. Trump says he did nothing wrong and the inquiry is politically motivated.
