Former President Donald Trump released a long statement after his Senate impeachment acquittal, promising he would “emerge with a vision for a bright, radiant, and limitless American future.”
But comments in front of the camera have yet to be made.
A CNN correspondent on Monday tweeted Trump’s staff “initially believed” he’d “make a statement in front of cameras following his second impeachment trial” but “that no longer appears to be the plan.”
“Reporters stationed in Palm Beach have been told a statement from the former president is no longer expected,” reporter Kaitlan Collins tweeted.
After the Senate decision Saturday, a Fox News affiliate posted the former president’s response that cast Democrats as those that have been “given a free pass to denigrate the rule of law, defame law enforcement, cheer mobs, excuse rioters, and transform justice into a tool of political vengeance, and persecute, blacklist, cancel and suppress all people and viewpoints with whom or which they disagree.
“I always have, and always will, be a champion for the unwavering rule of law, the heroes of law enforcement, and the right of Americans to peacefully and honorably debate the issues of the day without malice and without hate,” the statement continued.
“This has been yet another phase of the greatest witch hunt in the history of our Country. No president has ever gone through anything like it, and it continues because our opponents cannot forget the almost 75 million people, the highest number ever for a sitting president, who voted for us just a few short months ago.”
“Our historic, patriotic and beautiful movement to Make America Great Again has only just begun,” the statement added. “In the months ahead I have much to share with you, and I look forward to continuing our incredible journey together to achieve American greatness for all of our people. There has never been anything like it! We have so much work ahead of us, and soon we will emerge with a vision for a bright, radiant, and limitless American future.”
