US President Donald Trump invited supporters to celebrate his acquittal in the Senate impeachment trial at the White House on Thursday.
«We have that gorgeous word,» Trump told supporters. «It's called total acquittal.»
He showed the audience a copy of that morning's Washington Post which read 'Trump acquitted' to applause and cheers.
«It was all bullshit,» he emphasised.
Trump went on to... Еще thank his backers one-by-one, including his legal team and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
He also took aim at US Senator Mitt Romney, who was the only Republican to back impeachment, Congress Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the man who led the charge for impeachment at the trial US Congressman Adam Schiff.
Trump was acquitted on both counts of impeachment — abuse of power and obstructing Congress — in a vote that largely followed party lines on Wednesday. He was the third US president to face and survive a Senate trial.
