US President Donald Trump has taken a victory lap one day after his impeachment acquittal, in a tirade against his political enemies.
“I’ve done things wrong in my life, I will admit… but this is what the end result is,” he said as he held up a newspaper headlined “Trump acquitted”.
“We went through hell, unfairly. We did nothing wrong,” he said at the White House. “It was evil, it was corrupt.”
He earlier criticised impeachment foes who invoked their religious faith.

“Now we have that gorgeous word. I never thought it would sound so good,” Mr Trump said from the East Room, which was crammed with supporters and cabinet officials.
“It’s called ‘total acquittal’.”
