The US Capitol building hosted riots never seen before in United States history, on Wednesday, as scores of angered Americans stormed into the meeting place of Congress clad in President Donald Trump‘s signature campaign apparel.

Trump supporters storm US Capitol? – What was their mission?

Red hats with the words ‘Make America Great Again‘ and the US flag were just some of the articles worn by the rioters, whose mission was to invade the Capitol. For what reason?

Fortunately, it remains unclear since they never made it into the Congress sitting where lawmakers were debating on the implications of the electoral college vote.

Trump’s rhetoric on the integrity of the recent elections was the catalyst to the violent scenes the world witnessed at the eastern end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

The outgoing president, shortly after the riots, released a statement championing the anti-democratic actions of his supporters.
