A pro-Donald Trump protest was taking place outside Government buildings in Washington DC when the mob forced their way into Capitol Hill in a stunning attempt to overturn America’s presidential election, undercut the nation’s democracy and keep Joe Biden from replacing Trump in the White House.
Four people died in the proceedings including a woman who was shot, as well as three others who died in ‘medical emergencies.’
Donald Trump has been widely blamed for inciting the violent protest. In a video President Trump seemed to praise protestors while once again made entirely false and baseless claims that the US election was fraudulent.
