UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — US President Donald Trump on Thursday attacked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Mitt Romney, the only Republican in the Senate who voted to condemn him in his trial, accusing them of hiding behind their hypocritical beliefs.
“I don’t like people who take advantage of their beliefs as an excuse to do what they know to be wrong,” he said during the National Day of Prayer breakfast ceremonies, an annual event in which the two parties shared. I also do not like the people who say .. I am praying for you .. while you know that this is not true.”
It was Trump’s first public statement since he was cleared by the Republican-controlled Senate on Wednesday of charges of misusing his authority and obstructing the work of Congress. Trump was acquitted by a vote in the House.
Pelosi, a Catholic who started Trump’s accountability measures in September, said in December that she did not hate Trump and was praying for him. Mormoni Romney said in an emotional speech before voting on Wednesday that his faith obliges him to vote to condemn Trump.
Upon arriving at the venue of the annual gathering of clerics and members of Congress, Trump raised his hands holding two newspapers bearing their innocence on their chest.
Trump did not revive Pelosi, who was sitting with him on the podium, and when she spoke, he laughed and folded his arms and seemed to turn away from her talk.
It was the second display of rivalry between the two leaders in 48 hours. Trump did not reach out to shake hands with Pelosi before he delivered the State of the Union speech, and Pelosi tore off a copy of the speech after Trump had finished delivering it.
Pelosi later commented that she tore the copy because the letter was full of lies.
