Trump says he 'became worse' after being impeached twice
  • Trump said he "became worse" after being impeached twice during his tenure in office.
  • He said that Bill Barr "became a different man" after facing calls for impeachment.
  • Trump became the first president in US history to be impeached twice.
Former President Donald Trump on Sunday said that he "became worse" after being impeached twice during his tenure in office.

While speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Dallas, the former president relayed a litany of grievances to many of his most ardent supporters.

Trump described how Bill Barr, his former attorney general, faced calls to be impeached last year.

Last October, two private ethics groups asked the House to start impeachment proceedings against the attorney general, arguing that Barr was working to enable the former president's political objectives.

In his speech, Trump said that Barr "became a different man" after the calls for impeachment, while he "didn't become different" after the House impeached him for his role in the Ukraine scandal and his role in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

"He became a different man when the Democrats viciously stated that they wanted to impeach him," the former president said. "They went wild. We want to impeach him. We're gonna impeach Bill Barr. We're gonna impeach him. He became different."

He emphasized: "I didn't become different. I got impeached twice. I became worse."


The crowd loved Trump's proclamation, loudly applauding him.

Trump was the first president in US history to be impeached twice, in December 2019 and again in January 2021.
