Washington chaos as Trump supporters storm Capitol and blockade of Congress – BBC News




Thousands of supporters of President Trump have taken over the US Capitol building, sparking outrage over Joe Biden’s victory in the presidential election. They were forced to evacuate and block Congress, where lawmakers were preparing to approve the election result. Prior to the riots, President Trump addressed supporters close to the White House, saying he would never accept defeat. Biden’s president-elect called Trump to tell his people to go home and in the end that was the message he sent from the White House. The mayor of Washington ordered a toast when members of the U.S. National Guard were deployed to protect the city.
