Trump was acquitted by the Senate of both articles of impeachment on Wednesday. However, it hasn’t stopped the president from continuing to whine about the whole process, and blast those who voted to convict him.
On Saturday, Trump lashed out on Twitter against Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) who was the only Republican to vote to convict the president of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. He also lashed out against Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) for voting against him as he represents such a conservative state.
Trump tweeted angrily again referring to the trial as an “Impeachment Hoax”:
These aren’t the first tweets the fuming president has issued. On Friday, he issued a pair of tweets about Senator Manchin, saying:
‘I was very surprised an disappointed that Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia voted against me on the Democrats totally partisan Impeachment Hoax. No president has done more for the great people of West Virginia than me (Pensions), and that will always continue.’
Manchin told Fox News that he labored over the vote. He said:
‘I said if I can come home and explain it, I can vote for it. I can explain this vote. It might not be popular in my state but we will see. History will tell. The bottom line is the evidence was very clear.
‘I was hoping. I truly was hoping that we would see evidence, that we would see new witnesses. Maybe he could get some doubt or clarity. What we saw was overwhelming.’
Here’s what Twitter had to say:
