Trump Supporters Storm US Capitol As Congress Certifies Joe Biden As President-Elect

Twitter Reacts To Pro-Trump Protest At US Capitol

Large crowds of pro-Trump protesters stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday in a chaotic protest aimed at thwarting a peaceful transfer of power, forcing lawmakers to be rushed from the building and interrupting challenges to Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory.

As the protests escalated, Trump first tweeted more criticism of his vice president, Mike Pence, who was presiding over the congressional vote tally, then later urged his supporters to “Stay peaceful!” a request that did not seem to be heeded.

It was reported one protester made it into the Senate chamber and shouted “Trump won that election” from the dais, and one person was shot at the Capitol amid the pro-Trump protest
