Much of Washington came to a standstill on Wednesday morning to hear the opening exchanges in a day of testimony that could decide Trump’s fate.

However, White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said the president was getting on with his job.

"He's in the Oval in meetings,” she said. “Not watching. He's working."

White House officials have been keen to portray an image of a president intent on delivering his promises to the American people, continuing to work on overhauling the healthcare system, striking a trade deal with China, and mulling further tax cuts even as Democrats pursue impeachment.

On Wednesday, Trump is due to host President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey at the White House for meetings and lunch and then hold a press conference with the Turkish leader.

Even so, as a heavy consumer of TV news, White House watchers are keeping a close eye on Trump's Twitter feed to see how he reacts to the hearings. On Wednesday morning, Trump's Twitter page featured a string of retweets of Republican allies.
