Marc Short, the chief of staff to the outgoing vice president, Mike Pence, has been banned from entering the White House following the VP's refusal to overturn Joe Biden's win.

Trump has been delusional with his claims of victory as the US president is continuing wielding all the state instruments to stop Biden's inauguration.

The US congress met on Wednesday, January 6, to certify the former senator, 78, as the winner of the election but the process was met with an attack as pro-Trump supporters invaded the Capitol to disrupt the democratic process, Sky News reports.

In an act of likely revenge, Trump has directed that VP Pence's chief of staff be denied access into the White House as feud heightens between Trump and his second in command.

Meanwhile, Matt Pottinger has resigned, with the White House deputy national security adviser describing President Trump's action as a total disgrace.

As at Wednesday when the incident happened, Trump's top aides, including national security adviser Robert O'Brien and deputy chief of staff Chris Liddell, were considering resigning.

In a related development, reported that few days to handing over to Biden, President Trump may be removed from office.
