President Donald Trump slammed his own vice president, amplifying his calls against what he called “fraudulent” results from several states in the 2020 election.

The president’s doubling down on alleged election fraud came as masses of protesters attending a Wednesday rally breached the United States Capitol Building, overtaking cordons and forcing a police retreat.

Trump is now urging his supporters to remain respectful and peaceful amid reports of a shooting in the Capitol complex.

Protesters descended on the Capitol as Congress met to certify Electoral College votes. Trump previously asserted that Vice President Mike Pence held the power to reject electoral votes.

In a letter to Congress Wednesday morning, Pence doubted that he had “unilateral authority” to determine which votes should be counted.

After the letter was submitted, Trump went on the warpath against his vice president.

Mike Pence didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our Country and our Constitution, giving States a chance to certify a corrected set of facts, not the fraudulent or inaccurate ones which they were asked to previously certify. USA demands the truth!

As Trump railed against Pence, crowds were massing against police guarding the Capitol Building.

As more and more protestors arrived, law enforcement officers were forced to retreat inside the building itself. Eventually, a riot erupted as crowds breached the Capitol’s doors and windows.

With police struggling to lock down the Capitol complex and secure the building, it was unclear when authorities would again have full control of the situation.

Some estimates put the number of rallygoers in D.C. at over 100,000, though the vast majority of those people were not among those who breached the Capitol.
