KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad today offered a short advice to US President Donald Trump.

Speaking to reporters at the Third Conference of the League of Parliamentarians for Al-Quds, here, today, Dr Mahathir was asked if he had any advice for Trump.

To this, the prime minister replied: "Resign."

Touching on the recently concluded impeachment trial, Dr Mahathir said he wished the American Senate would have made a better decision.

Trump was acquitted in the impeachment trial that ended this week, on both articles.

On the first article of impeachment; abuse of power, he was acquitted by a vote of 52-48. On the second article; obstruction of Congress, the president was acquitted by a vote of 53-47.

"Here is a man who denigrated his own country's policy trying to use foreign pressure in order to win election and yet that is acceptable to America.

"It is not acceptable here, if any foreigners try to influence the result of elections here, we'll take action against the people here who try to do that," Dr Mahathir remarked.
