President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he’d love to make an appearance at his Senate impeachment trial – and, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) says he’d love to have him as his guest.

Speaking at a press conference in Davos, Switzerland, a reporter asked Trump if he will be showing up at his trial.

Trump said he’d love to show up so he could personally face down his “corrupt” accusers:

“I’d love to go, wouldn’t that be great? Wouldn’t that be beautiful? I’d love to sit right in the front row and stare in their corrupt faces. I’d love to do it."

“Now, don’t keep talking – because you may convince me to do it,” Trump replied when the reporter asked him why he doesn’t just do it.

Senator Rand Paul responded to Trump’s comment by saying he’d love to have the president be his guest at “this partisan charade” in a tweet including a photo of a Senate pass:

“I heard @realDonaldTrump would like to attend the impeachment trial. Mr. President, would love to have you as my guest during this partisan charade.”

Asked by a reporter if his attorneys would want him there, Trump smiled and replied that he thinks they “might have a problem” with him showing up:

“I think he might have a problem. I think they might. And, by the way, I think they will. I think they’ve done a really good job.”

Still, Trump says, he’s offended that “The other side has so lied” in the impeachment proceedings:

“These are major sleazebags. They’re very dishonest people - very, very dishonest people.”
