Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Trump said he's been spending his time after impeachment thinking about Nixon and looking at his White House portrait”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

President Donald Trump has described spending his post-impeachment days thinking about President Richard Nixon "more than anybody else" and staring at the White House portrait of the resigned president.

Trump made the comments in an interview with Fox News personality Geraldo Rivera's "Roadkill" podcast, which published Thursday.

When asked how he felt after being impeached last December, only to be acquitted last week, Trump said: "Well, it's a terrible thing, and, you know, I think of Nixon more than anybody else, and what that dark period was in our country. And the whole thing with the tapes and the horror show."

Trump was referring to the federal investigation into Nixon's role in a 1972 break-in at the Democratic National Committee's headquarters at the Watergate complex, and the subsequent efforts to cover it up.

In 1973, Nixon refused to hand over taped calls prosecutors believed to connect him to the burglary — citing executive privilege — and numerous top White House officials resigned rather than following Nixon's orders.
