Having emerged relatively unscathed from the impeachment process, US President Donald Trump is striking back against those who voted against him with his weapon of choice for domestic conflict: Twitter.
Besides Romney, the sole Republican senator to break ranks with the party and vote to convict President Trump, the US president has lashed out at Sen. Joe Manchin from West Virginia, giving him the nickname 'Munchkin' and calling his ability to read in question.
According to the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, he turned to his Mormon faith for guidance to make the difficult decision, declaring that he would vote against the president.
Besides the moves of the two, Donald Trump was ultimately found not guilty on both articles of impeachment: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, with 52-48 and 53-47 votes correspondingly.
The trial ended the months-long impeachment process that started in September 2019, when the formal impeachment investigation was launched due to the Trump-Ukraine scandal.
