Supporters of President Donald Trump hold a rally outside the US Capitol as they protest the upcoming Electoral College certification of Joe Biden as president on Jan. 6.
WASHINGTON — Thousands of supporters of President Donald Trump rioted at the Capitol building Wednesday morning following the president’s speech, storming through barricades of police officers and breaching the Capitol perimeter as Congress began the process of certifying Joe Biden’s presidential victory.
Trump had urged his supporters to “peacefully” march towards the Capitol building, falsely claiming that Democrats were stealing the election.
“Because you’ll never take back our country with weakness,” he told supporters gathered in front of the White House. “You have to show strength, and you have to be strong. We have come to demand that Congress do the right thing and only count the electors who have been lawfully slated. Lawfully slated. I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building. To peacefully, patriotically make your voices heard.”
