The aftermath of Wednesday’s riots on Capitol Hill remains ongoing and ever-present.
House Democrats are planning to impeach Trump yet again, even with just 11 days left of his time in the White House. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi already indicated that the only way Democrats will stand down on impeachment is if Vice President Mike Pence invokes the 25th Amendment against President Trump.
Pence is on the record stating that he will not move to have Trump booted from office. Moreover, other Republicans are criticizing Democrats’ latest moves for impeachment, claiming that it will only divide Americans.
In light of all the negative press surrounding the commander-in-chief, some folks are urging him to resign from office before his presidential term expires. According to Washington Examiner, the president will not be resigning from office.
Between Now and January 20
According to multiple senior White House aides, Trump is not even considering resignation. Despite the calls from Democrats and certain Republicans, the 45th president will carry out the remaining 11 days of his term in office; however, he won’t be going to the inauguration of Joe Biden, yet Pence is expected to attend.

Over 24 hours ago, the president not only delivered a concession of the 2020 presidential election, but he also strongly condemned the rioters that breached Capitol Hill. In issuing this condemnation, Trump explained that individuals who broke the law on Wednesday afternoon will “pay” and suffer the consequences of their illegal actions.
The White House is not currently responding to comment requests regarding calls for Trump’s resignation. However, the president made clear on Thursday that his focus is on an orderly shift of White House power for January 20.
Big Tech vs. Trump
In the final days of Trump’s presidency, big tech has all but waged an outright war against him.
Paypal, Twitter, Shopify, Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram, and several other online platforms are moving to censor the president. Just yesterday, Twitter permanently axed Trump’s personal account and @TeamTrump, the Twitter page used by his campaign. Trump’s team is also struggling with sending out emails, seeing as other service providers are pulling access as well.

Many conservatives view this as just the beginning of a big tech crackdown against not just Trump, but also the Americans who support Trump and believe in conservative values.
