U.S. President-elect Joe Biden delivers an emergency address to the nation. This is reported by The Washington Post.
The politician said that what is happening at the Capitol is a rebellion, not a protest. вЂњI call on this gang to leave and let democracy work,вЂќ he said.
Protesting supporters of incumbent U.S. President Donald Trump stormed the building and surrounded the Senate chamber. The Senate and House of Representatives interrupted a session scheduled to approve the results of the electoral college vote that Biden won the presidential election. Later, one of the protesters was shot in the chest in the U.S. Congress building. Trump himself urged supporters to act peacefully and support the police.
