Sulking Donald Trump has turned his fury on his team after being banned from social media for trying to incite a coup, insiders claim.
Sources in the Trump camp have claimed he is "wallowing in self-pity", enraged that his allies are not defending him.
Yesterday lawmakers voted to impeach the outgoing Republican – making him the first President in US history to be impeached twice.
Reports in the US claim Trump has become increasingly volatile and isolated, turning his anger on his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani – who he is reportedly refusing to pay.
Problems are mounting up for the US President, who will be replaced by Joe Biden next week.

Not only does he face impeachment in the US Senate, which could see him booted out of office early and banned from standing again, Trump faces increased scrutiny of his financial affairs when he steps down.
CNN correspondent Pamela Brown said: "I'm told from sources close to the White House that the president is in self-pity mode, that he is increasingly isolated inside the White House.
"The president for his part believes — is upset that no one is defending him.
"Even those who have defended the president fiercely all these years are saying privately that no one else got him here but himself, the reason why he was impeached twice was his fault and no one else's."

And a source told the Washington Post: "'The president is pretty wound up."
He is said to have told aides not to pay Giuliani, who led the Trump campaign's legal challenges against the election results.
He is also refusing to answer the Borat 2 star's calls, it is claimed, after he billed the President $20,000 (£15,000) a day.
Giuliani urged Trump supporters to engage in "trial by combat" at a rally shortly before the Capitol siege.
He later claimed it was a reference to hit drama Game of Thrones, and denied he was trying to incite violence.

Other insiders to feel Trump's wrath reportedly include press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, senior adviser Jared Kushner, economic adviser Larry Kudlow, National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien, and Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.
He faces a hearing in the Senate from Saturday after being accused of inciting last week's violence in the US Capitol.
Five people, including a police officer, died after Trump fanatics stormed the building as lawmakers ratified Biden's victory.
The defeated President reportedly believes no one is speaking up for him, and he is unable to vent on Twitter, as he has in the past.
Ally Sen Lindsey Graham said: “The president has come to grips with (the fact) it’s over.
“That’s tough. He thinks he was cheated, but nothing’s going to change that.”
