The New Year in the United States began tragically. A wave of rallies by supporters of President Donald Trump swept across the country. The meeting of Congress to approve the election results had to be interrupted due to an attempt to seize the Capitol.

Trump followers rally in front of the White House and demanded to invalidate the election results, according to which Joe Biden won. Congress confirmed Biden's victory in the Electoral College. The strangers of the still incumbent American president managed to break through the fences in front of the Capitol and burst inside the building.

As a result, the police and security forces had to cordon off the territory and evacuate everyone who was present at the Congress meeting. Even the National Guard provided assistance in suppressing the riots. According to media reports, several people were injured and four of them died. At the same time, the police detained 52 people. Tear gas and even firearms were used to disperse the protesters. Donald Trump has already reacted to what is happening. He urged his supporters to go home, but Twitter blocked the post with a call to violence.
