January 7th – Comprehensive U.S. media reported that on January 6th local time, a group of Trump supporters broke into the Capitol and broke into a fierce clash with the police.
U.S. President-elect Biden said in a message that “attacks on Congress are not dissent, but disorderly disorderly, almost ‘sedition’ and must stop immediately.”
According to CNN and other U.S. media reports, a group of Trump supporters broke into the Capitol, causing a joint meeting that was undergoing the process of confirming the results of the state elector’s general election voting, which was forced to suspend.
There was a fierce clash between demonstrators and the police. The situation in Parliament was chaotic. Glass windows in the chamber were broken, and the congressional police had to raise guns on guard.
According to the report, the police fired tear gas, and some people were shot and others were injured. The National Guard and the federal police went to Congress to control the scene, and the curfew began at 6 p.m. on Wednesday in Washington, D.C.
U.S. President-elect Biden said on social media that the attack on Congress is not an expression of dissent, but disorder and chaos, which is close to “sedition” and must be stopped immediately.
Biden also spoke on January 6th local time on the protest riots in the U.S. Capitol, calling it an “infringement” of democracy.
Biden said: “At this moment, our democracy is being violated unprecedentedly. Protesters attacked the Capitol, lawmakers and the Capitol police who vowed to protect them…
The chaotic scene of the Capitol does not reflect a true America. We are seeing a small number of extremists, and now it must be over.” He called on Trump to stand up and shout to his supporters to stop the riot.
U.S. President Trump tweeted a short video message demanding that the demonstrators who broke into the U.S. Congress “go home immediately”, but he still said that the results of the U.S. presidential election were “stealed”.
