According to The Guardiand, impeachment supporters lacked 10 senator votes. The Democrats were joined by 7 Republicans who did not support the former president, but that was not enough.
Trump’s fellow supporters of the impeachment include Richard Burr, Bill Cassidy, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Mitt Romney, Ben Sasse and Pat Toomey.
After the vote, Trump welcomed his acquittal in the Senate and said his political movement had “just begun.”
“Our historic, patriotic and beautiful movement to make America Great Again has only just begun,” he said in a statement.
“I will have a lot to share with you in the coming months, and I hope to be able to continue our incredible journey together to achieve American greatness for all of our people,” he added.
The Democrats, who initiated the impeachment of the former head of state, say he deliberately fueled tensions in the country after losing the November 3 presidential election to Joe Biden, claiming, without concrete evidence, that the voting process was overshadowed by mass rigging.
On January 6, he held a fiery rally near the White House, inviting the crowd to march to Congress, where Biden’s victory was claimed that day.
The crowd invaded the U.S. Capitol and disrupted the assertion of election results. Five people were killed in the chaos, including the shooting of a woman who invaded the Capitol and a police officer beaten by a crowd.
The impeachment leaders say Trump, who has not expressed regret at encouraging a violent crowd, is so dangerous that he should be barred from taking office again.
