People familiar with the matter told CNN that Trump has always blamed his long-term personal lawyer and many others for his current plight, even though he did not take any responsibility publicly or privately. Giuliani is still expected to play a role in Trump̵
Another reason for Trump’s anger is the House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who further angered Trump on Wednesday, saying he was responsible for the riots last week. After California Republicans gave up the option to condemn Trump in a letter to colleagues earlier this week, the president has been upset with McCarthy.
A White House adviser told CNN that “everyone in the White House is angry with everyone” and the president is frustrated because he believes that people are not defending him enough.
The source said: “He is in a state of self-pity.” Trump complained that he has been under siege for five years, and he thinks this is the most recent impeachment.
But many people close to Trump believe that the current situation is different from his first impeachment, when he was accused of exerting pressure on the Ukrainian government to investigate Biden in an attempt to influence the presidential election.
The White House adviser said: “His actions led to no one else here. He also incited the mob to charge the Capitol to stop certification. He will not find many sympathetic Republicans.”
During the last impeachment effort, Trump’s allies who entered and exited the White House publicly defended him and made key points throughout the impeachment process. This time no similar effort was achieved. The leadership of the Republican House of Representatives decided not to pressure colleagues, asking them to unanimously, and let them vote with conscience. Ten Republicans voted with each Democrat to pass the impeachment case.
After Trump was banned from accessing social networks on Friday, he no longer had his favorite method of communication-Twitter -, and another person near the White House worried that Trump might attack further.
This person said: “He has been trapped in his residence, which has never been a good thing. He is a person, and not many people can refute his ideas. “Now Twitter is not available. God only knows that the exit what. “
