Donald Trump supporters have attempted to storm the House of Congress in Washington following a speech by the President earlier. Video footage has begun emerging on social media of protestors clashing with police as they stand guard outside of Congress. Mike Pence is expected to concede the election to Joe Biden in a normally uneventful ceremony.
President Trump called on Mike Pence to nullify the election and block Mr Biden’s certification.
However, Mr Pence has defied this pressure from the President and intends to validate the election in a joint session of Congress.
In a letter to Congress, he said: “My oath to support and defend the constitution constrains me from claiming unilateral authority to determine which electoral votes should be counted and which should not.
He again made baseless claims that the election was rigged against him and that he had won by a considerable margin.
