Fresh off being acquitted in the Senate yesterday, President Trump took his platform at the National Prayer Breakfast to decry the efforts of the Democrats to unseat him from his duly elected office.
Trump’s main gripe is that Pelosi and Romney were hiding behind their ‘faith’ as the reasoning to why they needed to impeach and remove Trump.
Trump was vocal during the entire process about his disdain for Pelosi’s efforts, but he still had a job to do running the country, and never fully unloaded until this morning.
President Trump spoke in a somber tone as he leveled his true thoughts toward those who had attacked him. There’s something to remember about Trump. His core pillar is loyalty above all else. So he took Romney’s voting against him very seriously. Trump will defend you all day long if you’re in trouble, and you’re on his side. But once he perceives you’ve betrayed him, and you don’t ask forgiveness, it’s over.
Trump also strongly believes in never appearing weak. He believes that if you let someone criticize you publicly, and you don’t respond, then you look like a shmuck, and the rest of your enemies will think they can get away with it as well.
Trump is a strong believer in revenge. If you cross him, he be very calculating in the sense that he will bide his time until he can publicly shame you. In the case of Pelosi and Romney, you can expect that the political revenge will be massive and exacting.
Trump didn’t mention Pelosi and Romney specifically in his remarks, but it was evident whom he was talking about,
‘I don’t like people who use their faith as justification for doing what they know is wrong. Nor do I like people who say I pray for you when they know that’s not so. So many people have been hurt, and we can’t let that go on. I will be discussing that a little bit later at the White House.’
“We are grateful to the people of this room for the lovely show to religion, not one religion, but many religions. They are brave, they are brilliant, they are fighters, they like people and sometimes they hate people. I’m sorry. I apologize. I am trying to learn. Not easy. It’s not easy. When they impeach you for nothing, and you’re supposed to like them, it’s not easy, folks. I do my best,”
Trump went on to add,
‘My family, our great country and your president has been put through a terrible ordeal by some very dishonest and corrupt people. They have done everything possible to destroy us and by so doing, very badly hurt our nation,’
‘They know what they are doing is wrong but they put themselves far ahead of our great country. Weeks ago and again yesterday, courageous Republican politicians and leaders had the wisdom, fortitude, and strength to do what everyone knows was right.’
This is just the beginning of Trump’s retaliation.
