RT published this video item, entitled “Trump supporters invade Capitol building” – below is their description.
Donald Trump called on his supporters to march on the Capitol, but I bet even he didn’t think they’d actually swarm the place and get it locked down, preventing the official certification of Joe Biden as the official winner of the election. But they did. A woman was even shot during the chaos, and is reportedly in a critical condition.
The unprecedented scenes are not exactly reminiscent of the peaceful transfer of power the US is so proud of.
Protesters swarmed the building, posing for photos in the Capitol rotunda, setting off fire extinguishers, breaking windows and chanting ‘we want Trump.’ Footage shows police or security officers with guns drawn in the Senate chamber, amid reports the cops have called for reinforcements.
Things are so serious even Trump has tweeted to ask his supporters not to use violence and respect the police. A few hours earlier he told thousands at a rally he would never concede.RT YouTube Channel
