Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., tells "Fox News Sunday" he is "ready to work with" the former president moving forward.
The US Senate acquitted Trump in his second impeachment trial on Saturday. 'As they were deathly afraid of him for the last four years, they are going to continue to be afraid of him for the next four years'.
The US Senate has fallen short of the two-thirds majority required to find former president Donald Trump guilty of inciting riots on Capitol Hill last month. House members impeached him on an "incitement of insurrection" charge. Davidson-as-Van Der Veen came on screen next, saying he didn't want to be there, that "this is the worst thing that's been in the senate chamber in the history of a couple of weeks" and that he was going to call his own witnesses, after which he proceeded to mispronounce a number of women of color's names, including Kamala Harris, but whether it was on objective or out of ignorance he noted, "You'll never know".
In his reaction, Mr Trump called the trial "yet another phase of the greatest witch hunt in the history of our nation".
Together these trials a year apart spoke to one president's singular capacity to get into, and out of, trouble - the story of Trump's life. Together there is nothing we can not accomplish'. "We heard the roundly debunked jurisdictional argument that the Senate cannot try a former official, a position that would mean that any President could simply resign to avoid accountability for an impeachable offence, a position which in effect would render the Senate powerless to ever enforce the disqualification clause in the constitution".
A majority of United States senators, including seven Republicans, voted 57 to 43 in favour of convicting Trump on a charge of incitement to insurrection.
Despite slight pushback from within the Party, the GOP still belongs to Donald Trump.
He said of Mr Trump's trial: "While the final vote did not lead to a conviction, the substance of the charge is not in dispute". It's an issue the party will face heading into the 2022 midterm elections, when it seeks to regain control of Congress, and the 2024 GOP presidential primary.
That tension was on display in the immediate aftermath of the vote.
Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., who's speaking and who's seen here alongside the other House impeachment managers on Saturday, says they have "no regrets" over their trial strategy.
But he sharply criticized the former president on Saturday for inciting the Capitol riot by calling Trump "practically and morally responsible" for it. He publicly denounced https://www.facebook.com/SenatorSasse/posts/what-happens-on-january-6th-in-november-160-million-americans-voted-on-december-/3517705981660655 Trump's false claims of widespread electoral fraud and said there was no basis to object to Democrat Joe Biden's Nov. 3 victory.
Our cherished Constitutional Republic was founded on the impartial rule of law, the indispensable safeguard for our liberties, our rights and our freedoms, Trump said.
Numerous and fiercely loyal pro-Trump Republicans and more traditional Republicans who believe the former president is damaging the party's national appeal are struggling to decide the party's direction.
