President Trump took aim at Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) for invoking his Mormon faith when explaining his reason to vote to convict the president on one of two House-passed impeachment charges brought against him during the Senate trial earlier this month.

“I did absolutely nothing wrong,” Trump asserted during an interview with Geraldo Rivera released on Thursday. “Everybody knew it. Romney knew it too, by the way. You know that was a disgrace and he knew it.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Trump then knocked Romney for citing his religion when explaining his decision to vote to convict the president of abuse of power.

The president argued that if Romney used his faith as the reason why he voted yes on one of the articles of impeachment, why didn’t he vote the same way on the other?

“Look, I got 52-and-a-half votes out of 53. I got 52-and-a-half. I guess if it was the religion, he should have voted for the other half,” Trump said.  “You know, he voted on one positively and the other negatively. He should have probably if it was just the religion, should have voted on both if you think about it,” he added.
