4 dead and 2 bombs found

The chaotic scenes came after Mr Pence had defied the president by saying he would not intervene in the confirmation of Mr Biden’s victory by Congress.

Mr Trump turned on his vice president, claiming Mr Pence “didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done”.

Trump held a rally earlier in the day, during a speech Trump had asked his supporters to march towards the Capitol in protest. They breached the building while Congress was certifying Joe Biden’s win.

4 people have been confirmed dead following the riots, a woman was shot in the neck within the Capitol building and later died in hospital.

2 pipe bombs were also found near the headquarters for the Republican National Committee and Democratic National Committee, both of which were safely detonated.

‘Orderly Transition’

“Even though I totally disagree with the outcome of the election, and the facts bear me out, nevertheless there will be an orderly transition on January 20th,” the unswerving president said.

“I have always said we would continue our fight to ensure that only legal votes were counted. While this represents the end of the greatest first term in presidential history, it’s only the beginning of our fight to Make America Great Again!”
