In what can only be described as a shocking and desperate attempt to retain Donald Trump as the President of the USA, a violent mob of Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol, where Congress' ceremonial session to formally declare President-elect Joe Biden’s victory was taking place. 

Armed with guns, the mob jumped over the building walls, broke through the barricades, and stormed inside the building, proceeding to pose with official documents, sit on the dais inside the Senate Chamber, and even pull down the American Flag to instead hoist a flag stating 'Trump Is Our President'.
