"Deeply disturbed and saddened"; what Celebrities and World Leaders had to say about the Capitol breach

Hundreds of supporters of US President Donald Trump forcefully marched into the US Capitol while the Congress was in session, on Wednesday, disrupting the lawmakers as they were about to certify Democrat President-elect Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 presidential election. The violence that followed has led to the death of four individuals, and the lawmakers were evacuated, a curfew was imposed in the Capital and the mob was evicted. Pipe bombs, Molotov cocktails, and guns were discovered during a security sweep.

What led to this?

Trump’s attempt and his hunger to cling to power is to be blamed for igniting the violence that has led to 4 deaths and the arrest of 69 individuals. Now even Facebook has extended its ban on Trump’s use of Facebook account through the inauguration, saying the risk of his posts is ‘too great.’

Trump, who continues to insist he will not concede, had said at a rally of his supports on Wednesday afternoon in Washington, “We will never give up.” As the clashes broke out, Trump appealed for peace. “Please support our Capitol Police and Law Enforcement. They are truly on the side of our Country. Stay peaceful!” he tweeted. Biden, on the other hand, said the democracy in America was under an “unprecedented assault”.

The pro-Trump mob took over the presiding officer’s chair in Senate, the offices in the House Speaker, where one of them even yelled, “Trump won that election.”

They mocked its leaders, as they posed for photos in the office of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, with one foot propped on the desk, while another sat in the same seat Vice President Mike Pence had occupied only moments before.

What is happening is no less than an attempted coup; trying to forcefully hold on to the power that doesn’t belong to Trump.

“To storm the Capitol, to smash windows, to occupy offices, and to threaten the safety of duly elected officials is not protest,” said Biden, “It is insurrection. The world is watching – and like so many other Americans, I am shocked and saddened that our nation, so long a beacon of light, hope, and democracy has come to such a dark moment.”
