Trump’s total aqcuittal versus Clinton’s censorship

The BBC has contrasted President Trump’s celebratory post aqcuital speech with President Bill Clinton’s apologetical speech after he survived impeachment in 1999. The BBC wrote:

Mr Trump’s post-acquittal celebration contrasted with President Bill Clinton’s address in 1999, when the impeached Democratic president offered a sombre apology to the American people.

“I want to say again to the American people how profoundly sorry I am for what I said and did to trigger these events and the great burden they have imposed on the Congress and on the American people,” Mr Clinton said.

There is a difference between both impeached President’s acquittals. In Clinton’s case, he was censored, while in Trump’s case, ot is something he describes as ‘total acquittal’. He wasn’t even censored.
