Leakblast.com had reported that the US president’s supporters broke into the US Capitol to stop the certification of the electoral college votes on Wednesday, January 6.

Vice President Mike Pence was presiding over the certification with lawmakers present when the pro-Trump supporters stormed the complex.

The vice president and the lawmakers were consequently evacuated while Capitol was locked down, essentially stopping the certification process, according to Al Jazeera.

Reacting to the incident, Biden asked President Trump to go on national television to demand an end to the siege.

He said:

“I call on President Trump to go on national television now to fulfill his oath and defend the Constitution by demanding an end to this siege.”

Biden said that what is happening as the Capitol is dissent but disorder, adding that it must end immediately.

Just like his supporters, President Trump also does not want the election to be certified by Pence and the lawmakers.

He had asked the vice president not to certify the votes but to send them back to their respective states.

The embattled US president claimed that many states want to decertify the votes just as he said the vice president has the power to send the votes back to the states instead of certifying them.
