Biden blames Trump for US Capitol violence

President-elect Joe Biden has denounced the rioters who stormed the US Capitol as “domestic terrorists” and he blamed President Donald Trump for the violence that has shaken the nation’s capital and beyond.

The riot by Trump supporters who breached the security of Congress on Wednesday was “not dissent, was not disorder, was not protest. It was chaos”.

Those who massed on Capitol Hill intending to disrupt a joint session of Congress that was certifying Biden’s election victory over Trump “weren’t protesters,” Biden said on Thursday.

“Don’t dare call them protesters.

“They were a riotous mob – insurrectionists, domestic terrorists.”
