Donald Trump: “Our Historic Movement Has Only Just Begun”


Former President Trump declared victory on Saturday after
Senate Republicans voted to acquit him for a second time,
saying that his political movement has “only just begun” and
that he would have more to share in the near future.
Trump thanked his legal team for “upholding justice and
defending truth.”
“Our historic, patriotic and beautiful movement to Make
America Great Again has only just begun. 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,” he said in the
statement.
Senators voted 57-43 on whether to convict Trump of high
crimes and misdemeanors for “willfully inciting violence
against the Government of the United States.” A two-thirds
vote was needed to find Trump guilty.
Seven Republicans joined all 50 Democrats in finding Trump
guilty over his role in the deadly siege on the Capitol that
took place on Jan. 6.
Trump was banned from Twitter days after the Capitol riot,
and has been quiet since leaving office, having done no
interviews since his presidency ended.
But Trump’s influence hangs over his party, even as a
number of Republicans say they would love to move on
from him.
The seven Republicans who voted to convict him sent the
signal it is time to move on in as loud a way as possible.
But the vast majority of Republicans did not, for a range of
reasons that includes Trump’s power within the party.
In the statement, Trump gave his “deepest thanks” to the
Republicans in the Senate who he said “stood proudly for
the Constitution we all revere and for the sacred legal
principles at the heart of our country.”
“I also want to convey my gratitude to the millions of
decent, hardworking, law-abiding, God-and-Country loving
citizens who have bravely supported these important
principles in these very difficult and challenging times,”
Trump said.
Trump decried what he described as the “latest phase of the
greatest witch hunt in the history of our Country.”
He accused Democrats of using heated rhetoric around the
social justice protests from over the summer, an argument
his legal team made as part of his defense.
“It is a sad commentary on our times that one political party
in America is 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,” Trump said.
“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.”
