Donald Trump's aides are concerned he may 'refuse to leave' the White House peacefully following a 'temper tantrum' from the outgoing US president.
The incumbent President recently lost the election to Democrat candidate Joe Biden, with the US electoral college declaring the victory earlier this week.
However, according to reports, the White House has 'turned crazy' over the past few weeks, with some aides worried that Trump won't go down easily.
He's even reported to have told advisers that he will refuse to leave on Biden's inauguration date in January 2021 - leaving some of his aides alarmed at the prospect.
An adviser is quoted as having told CNN: "He's throwing a f***ing temper tantrum. He's going to leave. He's just lashing out."
However, the report goes on to state that despite his tantrums and threats of staying in the White House, few aides have taken them seriously.
These concerns come as it was announced that Biden had received 306 electoral college votes - more than the 270 needed to take over the White House. California, one of the last states to vote on Monday (14 December), pushed him past the 270-vote threshold thanks to its 55 electors.
However, this wasn't a smooth process in some areas. Members of Michigan's electoral college were not allowed to gather in one place to cast their ballot due to security concerns.
Representative for the state's 23rd district, Darrin Camilleri, said on Twitter: "Due to safety concerns for tomorrow's electoral college vote, the entire legislature is closed and will be working remotely.
"I'm thankful for the courage of our electors who will be exercising their democratic duty and selecting our next President."
According to The Daily Dot, some electors have also been sent death threats.
Congress will meet on 6 January to formally count the ballots from the electoral college, before the President-elect is sworn into office.
And while it's been reported that Trump won't leave the White House, some on the right are claiming Biden will be removed if he ever makes it there.
Speaking at a pro-Trump rally earlier this month, conspiracy theorist Alex Jones said Biden will be removed from office 'one way or another'.
Standing on a stage during the rally in Washington DC, Jones said the incumbent was the 'best president the country had ever had'.
Joe Biden's inauguration will take place on 20 January 2021.
