To recap, on January 7, the US Congress confirmed the victory of newly elected President Joe Biden in the presidential election.
A session of Congress began that day in the Capitol, where the votes of the board of electors were to be counted and the elected president, Democrat Joe Biden, was to be approved. However, because of Republican objections, the Congress was adjourned.
At the same time, Trump has stated that he doesn't admit his defeat in the presidential election and "will never give up."
Police were able to clear the Capitol, the encounter resulted in injuring over 30 people and killing four.
