Transcript for President Trump slams impeachment trial
Next, president trump slamming his impeachment trial. Hours before closing arguments begin in the senate. Here's David Wright. Reporter: Tonight, unrepentant, president trump sat down with Fox News ahead of the super bowl. I use the word witch hunt. I use the word hoax. I see the hatred. I see the -- they don't care about fairness. They don't care about lying. Reporter: He let loose on his rivals and his critics. What they have done -- all the media, I call it the fake news. And it is fake news, so much of it. A lot of the fakeness is they don't want to report the good stuff. They don't want to report that the economy is good. Reporter: One of the two Republican senators who rescued trump from an extended senate trial by voting against witnesses said today he doesn't approve of the president's behavior. I think he shouldn't have done it. I think it was wrong. Inappropriate was the way I'd say, improper, crossing the line. Reporter: But Lamar Alexander doesn't think the president's conduct was impeachable. Hopefully he'll look at this and say, okay, that was a I shouldn't have done that. Reporter: Judging from the Fox News interview, trump is not quite ready to bury the hatchet. Pelosi? I think she's a very confused, very nervous woman. I don't think she wanted to do this. I think she really knew what was going to happen. And it's -- her worst nightmare has happened. Reporter: One of the president's closest allies in the senate signaled he's ready for payback with hearings investigating Joe Biden. You should expect us to do this. If we don't do it we're letting you down. And I guarantee you, if the shoe were on the other foot Democrats would be eating us alive if Republicans had done any of these things. Reporter: One day after the president's speech, the senate is expected to take its final vote. Not much mystery about the outcome, though. The vote expected to clear him mostly along party lines. David, thank you.
