Marc Short, the chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence, said that President Donald Trump banned him from the White House grounds on Wednesday.
Short said the ban was retaliation for advising the vice president, who announced on Wednesday that he was not empowered by the Constitution to overturn the results of the 2020 election. Pence announced earlier Wednesday that, despite intense pressure from Trump, he would fulfill his constitutional duties and certify the election of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
Bloomberg first reported that Marc Short had been banned from the White House. Short confirmed to RealClearPolitics reporter Phillip Wegmann that he was not being allowed back into the White House.
“He’s blaming me for advice to VP,” Short told Wegmann.
