A chaotic scene occurred in Washington DC on Wednesday when a large crowd of pro-Trump protesters stormed the U.S. Capitol building.
Trump supporters flocked to the nation’s capital to attend a rally that President Trump had previously held outside the White House. The rally was planned in protest against the Legislature Assembly on Wednesday to confirm the election victory of President-elect Joe Biden.
At his own event, Trump encouraged his supporters to continue demonstrating against Congress, falsely claiming that Vice President Mike Pence had the power to reverse the election results. While the situation was developing, protesters entered the Capitol and injuries were confirmed, including at least one shot victim.
