(Freedomjournal.org) – President Trump is doing the rounds, celebrating his victory of impeachment acquittal. Following a long, arduous, and divisive impeachment trial, the president has been acquitted following a Senate vote.
During the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday, President Trump was seen triumphantly and proudly waving a copy of the USA Today newspaper, emblazoned with the headline “Acquitted.”
In other interviews throughout the day, Trump was also seen waving a copy of The Washington Post which also featured the word “Acquitted” on the front page.
It is a proud day for President Trump, after being subject to weeks and months of smears from Democratic senators who have argued that he broke the law or committed a misdemeanor during his phone calls with Ukrainian officials.
The National Prayer Breakfast is an event attended by both Democrats and Republicans every year, making the moment significant. Not only were many of the Democrats who voted to remove him from office present at the breakfast, but so was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
The moment must have been particularly painful for Pelosi, given just the day previous she was seen tearing up the president’s State of the Union papers as Trump completed his speech.
During his speech, the president focused on forgiveness, faith, and love, but also acknowledged he wasn’t perfect and that he was still learning.
Referring to Christians, and people of faith, the president said:
“They love people and sometimes they hate people…I’m sorry. I apologize. I’m trying to learn…It’s not easy. When they impeach you for nothing and then you’re supposed to like them it’s not easy folks, I do my best.”
Voters and attendees are likely to understand Trump’s conundrum. Nancy Pelosi’s Twitter account posted a photograph of the president snubbing a handshake before the SOTU speech claiming that the Democrats will always attempt to find commonground. The sneering attitude and hypocrisy of Democrats are surely enough to make any person of faith angry.
Democrats will never stop extending the hand of friendship to get the job done #ForThePeople. We will work to find common ground where we can, but will stand our ground where we cannot. #SOTUpic.twitter.com/ELJqR9q4xD

Trump also took the opportunity to call our Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) who hit headlines when he voted in favor of removing the president from office. Trump said, “I don’t like people who use their faith as justification for doing what they know is wrong.”
The president was referencing Romney’s explanation that his faith had led him to vote to convict the president.
