Market Watch, Robert Schlum, a professor of political science at the University of Southern California in the United States, said that the demonstrators’ capture of Congress on the 6th was trying to “coup”. He warned that the next 13 days could be “very dangerous”.
According to the report, Schlum said, “My intuitive reaction to today [thing happened] is that this is unprecedented in American history.” “It was an attempt to take a coup,” he told MarketWatch.
Schram added that if Trump could remain in office, the next 13 days “can be very dangerous”.
In addition, the report said that Chris Haynes, an assistant professor at the University of New Haven, said that many things that happened on that day had planted seeds in the past four years.
He said that when Trump created a political division, many Republicans chose to turn a blind eye, either directly supporting him or claiming that his remarks were irrelevant.
On the afternoon of January 6th local time, hundreds of protesters gathered in Washington, D.C., to demonstrate in support of Trump to put pressure on the ongoing joint session of Congress.
Subsequently, the demonstration turned violent, some demonstrators broke into the U.S. Capitol and the ongoing electoral vote certification process was suspended.
Later, as protesters evacuated from the Capitol after the curfew in Washington, D.C., the chaos of Congress ended and the joint meeting resumed.
In the early morning of the 7th local time, the joint meeting of the U.S. Congress confirmed Biden’s victory. Subsequently, according to CNN, Trump promised to transfer power to Biden in an “orderly” statement.
Biden is scheduled to be sworn in on January 20.
