On Wednesday, January 6th, 2021 the president of the United States, the republicans so-called hero, Donald Trump told thousands of his supporters that this was the last stand, the moment to overturn the result of November’s election and ensure a second term for Donald Trump stating

“We’re going to have to fight much harder,”

But when he stated this Trump, later on, unleashed a mob. Thousands of Trump loyalists stormed the Capitol. Protesters smashed windows and assaulted police inside the US Capital.
The Congressman and workers in the house were hiding under desks and also trying to escape into secret passageways. It all started with the president’s false promise saying

“After this, we’re going to walk down and I’ll be there with you,” Trump said.

So his followers not knowing he wasn’t going anywhere but back to the White House, did as they were told and they walked 16 blocks and surrounded the U.S. Capitol. But it was already clear that Jan. 6, 2021, would go down in history as one of the ugliest days in American history.
