Donald Trump plans defiant final week amid growing calls for his ouster

Banned from social media and abandoned by some staff after inciting an attack at the US Capitol, President Donald Trump and a dwindling circle of advisers plan a defiant final week in office, according to people familiar with the matter.

Trump is confident Vice-President Mike Pence and members of his Cabinet will not attempt to remove him under the 25th Amendment, the people said. Pence is dismissive of the idea of trying to use that authority to drive Trump from office, one person said.

The president and some allies also believe Democrats are overreaching by trying to once again impeach him over Wednesday’s siege at the Capitol, and think Senate conviction would be unlikely in any event.

One adviser called Democratic consideration of impeachment a political gift to Trump. Pence has not discussed the 25th Amendment beyond privately dismissing the approach as not feasible, according to a person familiar with the matter.

1. Trump, the big "counter puncher".

Counter punch yourself right into a federal prison, you festering boil on the ass of the U.S. You can tell the extent of his psychosis by the fact that he just doesn't know when to quit. Most people, most sane people, would stop digging when finding themselves at the bottom of a deep pit. Not Donald.

2. He probably sees it as a "What have I got to lose" situation.

If he became all presidential in these last nine days, it is too late, so why not go out in a blaze of destructive glory.

3. They think he has a political future? And that impeaching him a second time improves his support?

They are dangerously delusional. And there are many of them
