President Trump's Not Going Anywhere: Will not resign over Capitol violence, say aides; Peter Navarro: Republicans criticizing Trump over Capitol storming 'need to shut up', and related stories

Trump will not resign over Capitol violence, say aides:
President Trump is not considering resigning from office before Inauguration Day, according to two senior administration sources.
While Democrats prepare impeachment proceedings, several conservative voices have called on Trump to walk away for the good of the country amid the bitter fallout of Wednesday's assault on the United States Capitol by his supporters.
However, a senior administration official said there had been no discussion of resignation and there was no chance that Trump would cut his term short. "Zero," he said.
Trump has remained largely out of sight since Wednesday as resignations and recriminations battered his administration. He distanced himself from the mob with a video statement on Thursday evening condemning their actions, but the pressure has not yet eased. --->READ MORE HERE
Peter Navarro: Republicans criticizing Trump over Capitol storming 'need to shut up':
White House trade adviser Peter Navarro had harsh words for conservatives who have condemned President Trump for his role in the storming of the Capitol by his own supporters.
As Congress began its joint session on Wednesday to certify the Electoral College for President-elect Joe Biden, a swath of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol in an attempt to stop the session at the president's insistence. The chaos resulted in five deaths, countless injuries, destruction of federal property, dozens of arrests, and a lockdown of the Capitol, but it did not stop Congress from certifying the results.
Conservatives such as Sens. Lindsey Graham and Mitt Romney and former Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley "just need to shut up" with their criticism of the president, Navarro said.
"What I see now, the Nikki Haleys and Mitt Romneys, even Lindsey Graham, these people just need to shut up," he told Fox Business's Charles Payne on Friday. "What happened was tragic on Capitol Hill. It should not be laid at the feet of President Donald J. Trump." --->READ MORE HERE
