DONALD Trump acted like "a monster" and was "unreachable" yesterday as he refused to "condemn his people", aides have claimed.

Washington was shaken on Wednesday after a mob of MAGA supporters stormed the Capitol building as lawmakers met to certify Joe Biden's election win.

The violence, which saw four people die, has led Democrats to call for Trump's impeachment and arrest after the president called on his fans to march on DC at a rally yesterday.

Trump was also criticised for repeating bogus election fraud claims while telling his supporters to "go home" nearly three hours after the rioting had started.

And a White House official has told the Washington Post that the president refused to condemn his fans while comparing the violence to Black Lives Matter unrest last year.

The unnamed source said: "He kept saying: 'The vast majority of them are peaceful.

"'What about the riots this summer? No one cared when they were rioting. My people are peaceful. My people aren't thugs.'"

The official added: "He didn't want to condemn his people.

"He was a total monster today."

The insider compared the president's behaviour yesterday to his statement concerning the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017.

And according to Axios, many of Trump's adits and closest confidantes have given up trying to talk to him broadening the president "mentally unreachable."

Several White House staff resigned yesterday including Stephanie Grisham - who was the chief of staff to First Lady Melania Trump.

Some Democrats have called for Trump's impeachment following the chaos yesterday.

Rep. Diana DeGette, from Denver, called the 45th President a "danger to our country."

She tweeted: "President Trump instigated a violent attack on our Capitol.

"He is a danger to our country.

"He should be impeached and removed from office immediately."

DeGette also deleted a post that called for Trump's arrest.

However, that did not stop Joe Scarborough - the MSNBC host and vocal Trump critic.

The former Republican congressman called on police to arrest the billionaire, his son Don Jr and his lawyer Rudy Giuliani following their rally speeches yesterday.

He said: "That’s insurrection against the United States of America and if Donald Trump Jr, Rudy Giuliani and Donald Trump are not arrested today for insurrection and taken to jail and booked.

"And if the Capitol Hill police do not go through every video and look at the face of every person that invaded our Capitol and if they are not arrested and brought to justice today — then we are no longer a nation of laws and we only tell people they can do this again."

During a press conference this morning, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser said Trump "must be held accountable."

She said: "The current President must be held accountable for this unprecedented attack on our democracy.

"What happened yesterday is what he wanted to happen and we must not underestimate the damage he can do to our nation and our democracy over the next two weeks."

After lawmaker's were allowed back into the building, a joint session of Congress reconvened and Biden's election victory was certified.

A statement was then released from the White House in which Trump pledged an "orderly transition" on January 20.

It read:"Even though I totally disagree with the outcome of the election, and the facts bear me out, nevertheless there will be an orderly transition on January 20th.

“I have always said we would continue our fight to ensure that only legal votes were counted. "

The carnage in the Capitol yesterday could cause reportedly serious repercussions within the Republican party.

Senior GOP members reportedly want to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office, replacing him with Vice President Mike Pence.

The 25th amendment of the US Constitution allows the vice president to take office if the president should be "unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office".

Republicans are said to be "furious" at Trump for stirring up his supporters with false claims of election fraud, Axios reports.

Senior figures believe the brash firebrand has "disgraced" the party and encouraged the MAGA mob to "attack" American democracy, the report says.

And Trump's supporters "invading the sanctity of their chambers" yesterday was reportedly the last straw for many Republicans who now want the president banished from the party.

Political correspondents at both CNN and CBS also reported that bombshell talks to remove Trump from office are underway.

“I’m talking about actual members of the Cabinet,” CBS News' Margaret Brennan said, adding that "nothing formal (has) yet presented to VP Pence".

CNN's Jim Acosta tweeted: "Some cabinet members are holding preliminary discussions about invoking the 25th amendment to force Trump’s removal from office, a source familiar with the matter tells CNN.

"It’s unclear whether the effort would ultimately be successful at this stage."

Senior State Department officials are encouraging 25th Amendment talks along with other officials at the White House, according to two sources, Axios reports.
