First lady Trump’s chief of staff resigns amid unrest

Live updates Biden calls Capitol protest 'one of the darkest days' in American history

Some of Donald Trump's top aides, including his national security adviser, are likely to resign following violence at the US Capitol by a pro-Trump mob, CNN quoted sources as saying.

Mr. Pottinger resigned in protest over the episode on Wednesday, Bloomberg reported.

CNN's Kaitlan Collins reported Wednesday night on how the president was really feeling behind closed doors while watching all this unfold.

She did not mention the reason to leave the post, but media reports say the occupation of the capitol building by Trump supporters is behind her decision.

Thousands of protesters re-echoed Trump's claims of election fraud.

The melee delayed the certification process of Biden's victory for hours. His boss, National Security Adviser Robert O'Brien, also considered leaving but was persuaded to stay on by allies on Wednesday, the people said.

"I am very proud to have been a part of Mrs Trump's mission to help children everywhere and proud of the many accomplishments of this administration", Grisham said. Also weighing a resignation is Chris Liddell, assistant to the president and deputy chief of staff for policy coordination.

Grisham was one of the longest-serving Trump administration officials, having begun her tenure working for then-candidate Donald Trump in 2015 as a press wrangler on the campaign trail.

The departure of the fluent Mandarin speaker comes at a time of high tension with Beijing.

A woman shot at the United States Capitol on Wednesday is dead.

USA lawmakers called the action by Trump's supporters an embarrassment to American democracy that would play into the hands of rivals like China.

"There are no known issues that I am aware of", Lt. Terry Golightly, a spokesperson for Kansas Capitol Police, told CNN.
