Could Trump be removed for inciting supporters to storm the Capitol? | DW News



Unprecedented – and deadly – scenes at the Capitol in Washington DC – where supporters of President Trump stormed the building in a bid to overturn the election results.
One woman was shot and later died of her injuries, as rioters attempted to stop Congress members from certifying Joe Biden’s election victory.
Chaos unraveled on Capitol Hill as the building was stormed by hundreds of Trump supporters.
A battle ensued between riot police and the protesters as they broke past security.
They stormed the Senate chambers to prevent Congress from certifying Joe Biden’s election victory – literally bringing democracy to a halt.
Police then drew their guns. A woman was shot by police officers – and was later proclaimed dead.
Some protesters also turned their anger against the media.
Earlier at a rally near the White House, President Trump had repeated his unsubstantiated claims that the election had been stolen from him – and urged his supporters to rally at the Capitol.
Hours later Trump then released a recorded message telling his supporters to go home but failed to condemn their actions.
Trump has now been suspended from several social media accounts, including Twitter, after tweeting to supporters who attacked the Capitol.
When lawmakers finally got back into the Senate chambers, several senior republicans condemned then violence. Including Trump’s vice president Mike Pence.
The violence was branded as a siege by President-elect Joe Biden, who warned of the threat to democracy.
The crowds dissipated once the 6pm curfew came into force, but National Guard troops remained alert for potential violence throughout the night.

  1. The all powerful military industrial complex wants Donald Trump removed from office so that he can never ever be president again. They cannot forgive him for not starting any wars.

  2. congratulation on America!nice show time!the whole world is enjoy the show onAmerica itsself after all those years …this country have appointed fingers on other countries…

  3. I am no supporter of Trump but you people need to look yourselves in the mirror too.

    Fact of the matter is Trump is a symptom. Not the cause. The cause is the constant rejection and insult of opposing views by the left and liberals. Liberals can't always be right. No one can. This superiority complex needs to end.

    Liberals, conservatives and all those in between must start listening and compromise as in old days.
