Trump says he suffered ‘terrible ordeal’ in impeachment

US President Donald Trump says that he suffered a “terrible ordeal” during his impeachment.

In his first public comments since being acquitted by the Senate of abuse of office, he says he was “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,” he says at a televised prayer breakfast with a Who’s Who of Washington power brokers.

Speaking in an unusually raspy voice, Trump notes that he will be giving a statement at the White House later. He says he will discuss his determination that what happened during his impeachment cannot be allowed to “go on.”
