WATCH: Trump Blasts Those Who 'Use Their Faith as Justification' for Wrongdoing at National Prayer Breakfast

President Donald Trump delivered remarks at the 68th annual National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday, Feb. 6, just hours after the Senate acquitted him, ending a months-long impeachment trial.

After conservative author Arthur Cook talked about the importance of loving our enemies and defending those we disagree with, Trump took the stage, looked toward Cook and declared, "I don't know if I agree with you." He afterward reaffirmed that he enjoyed Cook's speech.

Trump began his remarks by addressing the impeachment against him.

"As everybody knows, my family, our great country and your president have been put through a terrible ordeal by some very dishonest and corrupt people," he said. "They have done everything possible to destroy us and by so doing very badly hurt our nation. ... I don't like people who use their faith as justification for doing what they know is wrong. Nor do I like people who say, 'I pray for you' when you know that is not so."

He then discussed what his administration has accomplished during his presidency and, toward the end, reaffirmed his pro-life stance by declaring all children are made equal.

"This morning, let us ask Father in heaven to guide our steps, protect our children and bless our families, and with all our heart, let us embrace the eternal truth that every child is made equal by the hand of Almighty God. Thank you. God bless you, and God bless America."
