January 6th, the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives will hold a joint meeting to confirm the results of the electoral college vote, which is also the last step to determine the results of the U.S. presidential election.
However, on this day, the U.S. media expected a large number of Trump supporters to flood into Washington.
Trump called on his supporters to participate in the march, with the intention of “making a scene” in Washington. Trump himself said that he would be at the rally at that time.
What kind of scene will Washington be staged on this day when the dust of the U.S. election is supposed to be settled? Will the protests turn into large-scale riots? Trump pressured Georgia officials to “find votes”. Can he “turn the tables” successfully?
In fact, since the 5th local time, Trump supporters have held protests in Washington, D.C., to put pressure on the upcoming joint meeting of Congress in an attempt to overturn the current Biden victory in the election.
In response to the protests, Washington has been put on alert early, traffic control was imposed early on the 5th local time, and merchants also blocked the store with wooden boards to prevent damage to the store.
According to the New York Times, according to people familiar with the matter, U.S. Vice President Pence told President Trump on the 5th local time that he did not think he had the right to prevent Congress from certifying President-elect Biden’s victory.
According to the report, Pence made the above statement at a weekly luncheon with the president.
On the evening of the 4th, local time, when Trump appeared in Dalton, Georgia, to attend an election assistant rally, he talked about overthrowing the election results, and publicly “chanted” Pence for the latter to lend a helping hand.
The Hill said that Trump was implying that Pence played a “role” in monitoring the process of the certification of electoral vote counting on the 6th. On the 5th, Trump tweeted again and publicly that Pence “have the right to refuse the elector who was fraudulently elected”.
As the Speaker of the Senate, Pence presided over the joint meeting of both houses of Congress on the 6th to supervise the certification process of the results of the Electoral College vote.
